It's a Boy!: Olivia
Wilde Gives Birth –
Welcomes Son Otis
With Jason Sudeikis
And baby makes three!
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis became parents for the first time today, as their son Otis Alexander Sudeikis has been born!
The new mom shared the exciting news with a photo of her and the newborn and a humorous tweet, which read “Ladies and gentlemen, Otis Alexander Sudeikis has LEFT the building! (I’m the building).”

The baby comes a few weeks early, as the House actress revealed she was due on Star Wars Day (a.k.a. May 4).
We’re glad Otis’ funny dad didn’t get final say about the name! On the Oscars red carpet, he joked about some of the names they were considering to honor the nominees, including Chiwetel Sudeikis Jr., for 12 Years a Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor, Llewyn Davis Sudeikis, to pay homage to critically acclaimed film Inside Llewyn Davis, and Alright, Alright, Alright—after Matthew McConaughey’s signature catchphrase.
Just days before giving birth, the brunette bombshell opened up about wearing her baby bump as “a badge of honor.”
"Pregnancy does shed away all of the bulls--t. It gives you more empathy because you feel closer to other females," she gushed to Lucky magazine. "Pregnancy brings you into this sort of commune—you feel connected to women in a way that you never have."
Not to mention, the mother-baby bond that forms: "He’s moving around in there and no one else can tell—it’s a little secret friendship.”
We're sure she’s even more excited to have Otis in her arm!
Congrats to all!
