See Olivia Wilde hit the red carpet 11 days after having son Otis
Olivia Wilde can do it all! The new mom was back in the spotlight a little more than a week after having her son, Otis.
She was right about that whole being a goddess thing...
The “Rush” actress hit the red carpet on Thursday with fiance Jason Sudeikis for the Ms. Foundation Women of Vision Gala, which took place at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.
The actress, who announced her baby boy’s arrival on April 23, was clad in a gray Band of Outsiders blazer, white blouse and J Brand jeans, according to Just Jared. She wore little makeup for the occasion but definitely wore a new mom glow.
Wilde posed with lawyer Gloria Steinem, the evening’s honoree, and she and her husband-to-be chatted with former tennis star Billie Jean King inside. Comedians Chelsea Handler and Amy Schumer, TV personality Suze Orman, “American Horror Story” actress Gabourey Sidibe, “The Big C’s” Kathy Najimy and actress Dominique Fishback were also in attendance.
In an interview with Lucky magazine just before giving birth, the 30-year-old said she was proud of her changing body -- particulary her burgeoning belly.
“I just thought, ‘Oh, I’m going to hide this forever. But I ended up getting kind of excited to show the bump, as a badge of pride,” she said, adding, “Like, I’m a woman! Look at me making a human! I am a goddess!”
“Pregnancy ... gives you more empathy because you look at everyone and you think, ‘You were a baby!’ ” she continued. “Pregnancy brings you into this sort of commune — you feel connected to women in a way that you never have.”
And since having the baby on April 20, the pithy Twitter user has posted quite a few observations about the human race. Here are a few choice tweets:
“Having an infant son alerts me to the fact that every man, at one point, has peed on his own face. #awesome,” she wrote on April 24.
“If Otis was on Cribs, his crib would win. I wish I could fit in it. Thanks, @SerenaandLily for the lovely gifts. Do you make adult swaddles?” said another.
“Jason observed that a breast pump looks like something Katy Perry would wear to perform at the VMAs. #accurate #milkyfashion,” she tweeted.
And one tweet to fellow mom and “Clueless” alum Alicia Silverstone said: “The Kind Mama is so helpful. So far I’m just a milk-stained mama eating peanut butter from a jar.”
