Nine months pregnant and still feeling like a ‘goddess!’

Olivia Wilde, 30, is expecting a baby boy with fiancé Jason Sudeikis, 38, due May 4, according to People Magazine, but her large pregnancy bump isn’t causing her any grief.

“I just thought, Oh I’m going to hide this forever,” Wilde told Lucky Magazine for its May issue. “But I ended up getting kind of excited to show the bump, as a badge of pride. Like, I’m a woman!  Look at me making a human! I am a goddess!”

Wilde and Sudeikis started dating at the end of 2011 and got engaged in January 2013. This will be Wilde’s second marriage, with her first being with Italian filmmaker Tao Ruspoli from 2003 to the beginning of 2011. Although Sudeikis won’t be her first husband, this child will be her first baby.

“Pregnancy does shed away all of the bulls***,” the “House” actress said. “It gives you more empathy because you look at everyone and you think, You were a baby!”

She continued: “Pregnancy brings you into this sort of commune–you feel connected to women in a way that you never have.”

Along with feeling more connected to women, Wilde is enjoying the personal connection she shares with her baby that no one else can barge in on.

“He’s moving around in there and no one else can tell–it’s a little secret friendship.”
