‘The Most Natural Thing’ – Olivia Wilde Breastfeeds Son Otis In New Photoshoot For Glamour

"You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional."

Olivia Wilde has breastfed her son Otis in a new photo shoot for Glamour Magazine.

The actress posed with her three-month-old in a retro diner as part of the shoot, explaining that she wanted to show an accurate portrayal of her life as a working mother.

“Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn’t complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that,” she said.

“Breast-feeding is the most natural thing. I don’t know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we’ve been discussing — that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed.”

While the model looks stunning in the photos, she was quick to point out that the reality isn’t usually as glamourous, saying “I mean, I certainly don’t really look like that when I’m [typically] breast-feeding. And there’s usually a diaper involved”.

Wilde, who is engaged to actor Jason Sudeikis, added that her own mother had inspired her to combine her career with her family.

“My mom is such a badass working mother.That inspired me when I was pregnant. I wasn’t going to sacrifice myself because I was becoming a mother.”
