Olivia Wilde Breastfeeds Naked Baby in Glamour Photo Spread


Olivia Wilde (who is 1/64th Sephardi Jew, according to Wikipedia) is the cover girl in Glamour’s September issue. But one photo in particular is getting lots of attention. Dressed in a couture flapper-style dress, Wilde is pictured breastfeeding her naked 4-month-old Otis at a table in an old school diner.

It’s always great to see more celebrities breastfeeding in public, but I’m pretty worried about that baby, to be honest. Why is he naked? Isn’t he cold? Isn’t Mama Wilde worried about her overpriced frock getting sprayed down with urine, or is there a Peepee Teepee under there?

Olivia explains in the interview:

“It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we’ve been discussing–that we know we can be,” the actress continued. “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.”

Hmmm… I never thought I’d say this, but I kind of prefer Gisele Bunchen’s candid breastfeeding shot. What do you think?
