‘I'm a mother, and I look like one’ Olivia Wilde gets real about her post-baby body

April 01, 2015 2 min read

With her baby a little under a year old, it's hard to believe that Olivia Wilde's body has already appeared to have bounced back. I'm softer than I've ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot," Wilde said. "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. Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 7.50.58 PM The truth is, I'm a mother, and I look like one," she said. The mother of Otis, 11 months, admitted that she loved being pregnant and was initially shocked by her body after giving birth. "First of all, you haven't seen your vagina in months, even though it's all her fault you're in this situation," Wilde said. "Now that you can finally confirm that she is, in fact, still there, she isn't the gal you remember, and would rather you back off and give her some space (and an ice diaper) for the time being...That gorgeous bump you proudly paraded around town for some 40 weeks has only retreated slightly after the birth. Now it's a lot like a partially deflated pool toy." "But luckily, that part doesn't last long," she said "Basically, for the first few months, your body has that covered, and you can just let it do the work while you focus on keeping the kid alive and occasionally washing your hair.” Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 7.52.56 PM The actress tried to ignore the pressure that Hollywood women face to quickly shed baby weight, and her main priority was to ensure her workouts were enjoyable. "I believe there is space for exercise to be as much a gift to your brain as it is to your body," Wilde said. "I don't want to waste my time striving for some subjective definition of perfection. I'd rather rebuild my strength while dancing my ass off...literally." Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 7.55.45 PM Besides trying to make workouts exciting, the star shared her biggest baby weight loss secret: breast-feeding. "Breast-feeding helps, in the most intense way," the fiancé of Jason Sudeikis said. "You feel your uterus contracting while the baby nurses. Your belly starts to go down. Your thighs become slightly less thunderous. Finally, you are ready to change out of sweatpants, but when you manage to button your jeans…the button clasp gets swallowed up and lost in your gelatinous Stay Puft Marshmallow Man belly. This is when it becomes abundantly clear that it's time to reintroduce yourself to your jilted abdominals." H/T: nydailynews.com Do you follow us on Instagram? snapchat code
