Olivia Wilde got candid about her personal life this week — in more ways than one.

After sharing her refreshingly honest views on a woman’s postpartum body, the first-time mama took to Instagram to post a super adorable snapshot of her son, Otis Alexander, who will celebrate his first birthday later this month. (Check out his oh-so cute Doodle Pants!)

“My kind of party,” Wilde, 31, captioned the photo of her getting down on her little guy’s level as the two swap big grins.

Olivia Wilde on Body After Baby: I’m a Mother, and I Look Like One

03/31/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Olivia Wilde is talking straight about what it’s like to be a new mom — after giving birth to son Otis Alexander 11 months ago, she has embraced her post-baby body.

“I am not in perfect shape. In fact, I’m softer than I’ve ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot,” she says in a profile she wrote herself in the April issue of Shape, on newsstands now.

“The photos of me in this magazine have been generously constructed to show my best angles, and I assure you, good lighting has been warmly embraced. The truth is, I’m a mother, and I look like one.”

It’s obvious that Olivia Wilde is, well, wild about being a mom.

“The amazing thing about becoming a parent is that you will never again be your own first priority,” the actress told reporters Tuesday at the International Women’s Media Foundation‘s 25th Anniversary Courage in Journalism Awards.

“The gift of motherhood is the selflessness that it introduces you to, and I think that’s really freeing.”

Wilde — who co-hosted the event in Beverly Hills, California — and fiancé Jason Sudeikis welcomed son Otis Alexander in April.

The busy 30-year-old actress says everything about life with her baby boy has been “amazing” since his arrival.

Olivia Wilde: A Baby Is ‘More of a Commitment’ Than a Wedding

08/05/2014 at 11:20 AM ET

Is Olivia Wilde the most dazzling breastfeeding mom ever?

This photo makes a case for it, although the actress and new mom swears she typically doesn’t look so fancy while nursing son Otis Alexander, 3 months.

“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,” she tells Glamour for its September cover story.

Even so, Wilde, 30, expresses no regrets about the breastfeeding picture, which features her nursing in a Roberto Cavalli dress while sitting in a diner-style restaurant booth.

See Olivia Wilde Rock Out with Son Otis

07/17/2014 at 03:00 PM ET

Peek-a-boo!

Olivia Wilde gave a glimpse of 3-month-old son Otis Alexander, and his big brown eyes just about stole the show.

“Rock and roll, baby,” Wilde, 30, posted along with an Instagram of her holding her baby boy, who nuzzled against her shoulder as he peered out at the camera.

Mom and son both kept things casual, with the Her actress wearing a caption-appropriate “ROCK AND ROLL” sweatshirt and Otis looking snuggly in a gray hoodie with animal ears.

The musical theme makes sense: baby Otis was named after the King of Soul himself, Otis Redding.

“I’ve always been a huge fan,” Wilde told PEOPLE in June.

“I’ve just always been a huge fan,” the new mom went on of the 1960s singer behind hits like “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay.” “I was a 10-year-old kid with posters of Otis Redding on my wall.”

Although she’s still getting into the swing of motherhood with her 8-week-old, Wilde says she’s already got some newfound perspective.
