We didn’t see that coming.
With headlines the world over focusing on amazing and rapid post-baby body transformations, it’s refreshing to hear an a-list celebrity mum speak candidly about her body.
In an interview with Shape magazine, former House M.D. star Olivia Wilde has admitted that her body may have changed forever since welcoming her first child, son Otis, with fiancé Jason Sudeikis in April 2014.
At first glance, the 31-year-old former model’s perfectly toned abs could have fooled us. But Wilde said, “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.”
The celebrity mum even admits to some photo-shopping to help her out. “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," she said.
“That gorgeous bump you 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," she continued.
And her revelations didn't end there, explaining, "After giving birth I joined the ranks of millions of new mothers when I moaned, 'Why do I still look pregnant?'"
