In happy Monday news, Olivia Wilde and fiancé Jason Sudeikis are expecting! Woot woot! The star of Rush and former-SNLer are only going to be the coolest. parents. ever! And this baby of theirs is no doubt going to be just as awesome as his or her parents.
Olivia comes from a politically-minded family (her parents Andrew and Leslie Cockburn are seasoned journalists, who’ve reported on national security and foreign affairs), is a total brain and a huge reader (she took her stage name Wilde after poet/playwright Oscar Wilde). Oh, and she just happens to be gorgeous, too. Then there’s Jason, who is high-larious, a good dancer (I still heart—and totally miss—his track suit-loving dancer character on SNL’s What Up With That sketch) and has amazing Midwest values (he’s from Kansas). What a well-rounded kid they’re going to have!
The two—who met on the SNL set back in 2011—have both previously been married, but this will be the first child for both. And it sounds like Olivia should be especially thrilled with the news because she’s always wanted kids. She told the April issue of Marie Claire, “I can’t wait for children! I’m open-minded about how many, but three, which I love, is like a little party.” Isn’t that sweet! She continued, “[Jason] is so good with kids. I’ve never before experienced looking at someone and thinking, ‘That’s who I want to raise a child with.’” Aww…can you say adorable?
Olivia—who is due next year—spoke out about the pregnancy news, which was first reported by People, by thanking her 1,152,000 Twitter followers for their kind words. “WOW. You guys are awesome. So kind. Thank you thank you thank you!” she tweeted. Then she jokingly added: “P.S. Babies eat mostly salsa, right?”
Man, that kid is going to have one heck of a sense of humor!

True to her beyond-ditzy character, Brittany, on Glee, when it came time for Heather Morris to share her baby news with her cast mates, she came down with a bad case of pregnancy brain. Costar Matthew Morrison, who plays teacher Mr. Schuester on the show, tells BANG Showbiz, “It’s funny, when she told me—I think I was one of the first people—she whispered in my ear, ‘I’m 13 months pregnant’, and I was like, ‘Months?’ and she said, ‘I mean 13 weeks!’”
Don’t make fun of her, because you’ll realize soon enough, if you haven’t already, that when you’re pregnant the strangest things come out of your mouth—if you can even find the words at all. It’s not that you become stupid, or that your IQ drops or anything—it’s just that the strangest things seem to misfire in your head. When I was pregnant, I’d mix up people’s names, use the wrong word in a sentence, and my brain would constantly go blank mid-thought and I’d forget what I was talking about all together. It was the most bizarre feeling—my mind and my mouth just wouldn’t match up!
I interviewed Heather in 2011 for her cover story in Fitness magazine, and the smart woman I met is anything but the airhead she plays on TV (though she’s just as funny and as good at delivering one-liners as her alter ego). I truly think she’s going to be a great mom, because even then all she talked about was how she wanted to start a family with her boyfriend Taylor Hubbell, a former baseball player for the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
I wish her the best. I think she’ll have no problems adjusting to mommyhood. She’s already an awesome aunt (She showed me pictures of her adorable nieces on her iPhone—she was so proud!). So my only advice to her is to not be too hard on herself because if she’s anything like I was, I’m sure that gaffe won’t be the last case of pregnancy brain before she gives birth. She’s reportedly due this October—just in time for season five of Glee.
