The actress has finally revealed her unborn baby’s gender
Olivia Wilde revealed that she and fiancé Jason Sudeikis are expecting a baby girl. The 32-year-old star – who already has a young son named Otis – made the announcement while supporting presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.
She shared a video of the Democratic candidate on Twitter, adding: “As someone who is about to have a daughter, this hits me deep in my core. #NeverTrump”
The video depicts footage of several young girls accompanied by sound bites from Donald Trump’s past interviews, ending with the question: “Is this the president we want for our daughters?”

Meanwhile, the star had recently insisted she’s raising Otis to be a feminist, saying: “I like to think he’s already a little feminist. And he is. I want to promote the idea that the definition of feminism is equality and it’s something that’s not difficult to teach children because they are born with that sensibility.
They are only taught to separate people and value them differently once they get older.”
Olivia also recalled a controversial 2014 shoot where she openly breastfed the young child: “I’ve learned a lot about that debate since that photo shoot and certainly since becoming a mother. One thing that is very clear to me is that it should be every individual woman’s choice what she wants to do. But once she makes that choice, she should be publicly permitted to do that in whatever way she needs to.”
The actress fully supports the idea of women breastfeeding wherever they deem necessary without judgment.
She continued: “Certainly there should be no pressure on women to breastfeed, or they are made to seem like they are terrible mothers. I think that’s really unfair. It was an interesting experience because that photo shoot came out of a very organic moment of having to feed my son because it was just my choice to breastfeed.
But I did not in any way intend to shame women who had chosen not to breastfeed for whatever reason. It’s a complex issue, but the one thing that’s not complex is that people should be allowed to breastfeed wherever they want, whenever they want.”
