“Breastfeeding is the most natural thing.” So says Olivia Wilde in this month’s issue of Glamour — and she proves it, with a photograph of herself breastfeeding her 3-month-old son, Otis.
“Being shot with Otis is perfect because any portrait of me right now isn’t complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that,” she told the mag. “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.”
The actress began dating her now-fiance in 2011, not long after she divorced her husband of of 8 years, Tao Ruspoli, and they welcomed Otis in April. “I wouldn’t be this person without that first marriage,” she admitted. “I really grew up with my first husband. Now I’m in a much wiser, more centered place in life. I think we can see people in our lives as chapters, we have a much healthier perspective about the whole thing. It’s like it had to happen the way it happened. Jason and I lived two blocks away from each other for years and never met.”
Still, the couple have no plans to tie the knot in the near future…something Olivia’s perfectly fine with. “We’re engaged, but no specific plans yet — we just have to find the time to put it together,” she explained. “In many ways, a child is more of a commitment. We are fully committed and really happy as a family. And there’s no definition of the ‘normal family’ anymore. Kids today are growing up with so many different definitions of family. I guess what I’m saying is that I don’t feel any pressure to do it, but I think it will be really fun.”
