The new September issue of Glamour Magazine boasts the gorgeous Olivia Wilde as its cover girl. Olivia welcomed son Otis with fiance Jason Sudeikis in April, and in the magazine she sat for a breastfeeding picture that has everyone talking.
She opened up about breastfeeding her 4-month-old son. “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,” Wilde said. “Breastfeeding 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,” she continued. “You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed. [But] I mean, I certainly don’t really look like that when I’m [typically] breastfeeding. And there’s usually a diaper involved.”
Wilde’s cover debuts during World Breastfeeding Week, an annual celebration promoting breastfeeding awareness worldwide. The actress joins other celebrities like Alanis Morissette, who have also shared photos in order to normalize the sight of breastfeeding and show support for other nursing mothers.
