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.

What’s in a name, anyway?

Olivia Wilde announced her and fiancé Jason Sudeikis‘s delightfully distinctive moniker for their baby boy — Otis Alexander — shortly after welcoming their son.

“He was named after Otis Redding,” Wilde, 30, told PEOPLE at the New York City premiere of her new film, the dramatic romance Third Person, on Tuesday.

“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.

Olivia Wilde never imagined flaunting her growing baby belly.

But once news broke that the actress was expecting her first child with Jason Sudeikis, the mom-to-be was immediately proud and pregnant — and more than ready to put her best asset front and center.

“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,” Wilde, 30, says in the May issue of Lucky magazine.

“Like, ‘I’m a woman! Look at me making a human! I am a goddess!'”

Not only has her baby on the way softened the expectant actress’s heart, but she says she has been welcomed into a whole new world.

10 Celeb Mom-to-Be Looks We’re Loving Right Now

04/07/2014 at 02:00 PM ET

It’s hard enough getting dressed up when you’re not pregnant, so we commend anyone who can pull together a polished ensemble while expecting a baby.

Forget about navigating the latest trends. Just searching for styles that complement your growing curves can be exhausting. The key is to find flattering pieces that make you feel great.

Drew Barrymore, who is expecting her second girl this month, really said it best. “It’s about feeling good in clothes and knowing you can get dressed up in the evening … but there’s just no such thing as perfection. So if you’re trying to get there, you’re just torturing yourself.”

There are plenty of star moms who get it right. And we’d like to give them kudos. Below are our fave maternity looks for every occasion.
