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!
