Olivia Wilde’s Son Otis’ Beyoncé Obsession Has ‘Hit a Fever Pitch’: He Calls Her ‘Beyoncé Boobies’

Beyoncé even has fans in the pre-K crowd.

Among them? Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis‘ son Otis, whose love affair with the pop diva has “really hit a fever pitch.”

So how did Otis — who turns 2 next month — first discover Bey and her “Formation”? That’s sort of Wilde’s fault.

“Yuu know how a lot of moms have on their iPads, like a kids show, like an appropriate-for-kids program, like an Elmo and such?” the actress revealed on Thursday during an Ellen DeGeneres Show interview. “I didn’t and we were on an airplane and I needed — as many of you know — a distraction tool immediately and all I had was all of Beyoncé’s videos from her last album.”

Wilde said that Otis particularly enjoyed “Yonce,” a clip that she called “arguably the most sexually explicit video ever made.”

“From that point on he called her ‘Beyoncé boobies’ which I think is great,” she said laughing. “Because most people — if you’re gonna call her — you call her like ‘Beyonce booty.’ ”

While Otis hasn’t yet met Beyoncé, he and Sudeikis did have a brief sighting while attending a basketball game at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.

“Beyoncé walked in and was sitting very far away on the other side of the Staples Center, court side,” the 32-year-old shared. “And Jason said, ‘Otis, do you see who that is?’ And he sat up and was like ‘Beyoncé, Beyoncé!’ And he stood on Jason’s knees and just started going ‘Beyonce!’ And all these people were like, ‘What is this 2-year-old doing?’ And maybe one day she’ll hear him.”

Until then, DeGeneres provided back-up supplies: a full, party set-up for a Beyoncé-themed birthday celebration.

I hate iPads but I do know you can put science videos on them. Language videos, art videos, science and sports videos. Teaching things.
