Actress Olivia Wilde is expecting her first child with fiance Jason Sudeikis. She revealed in a new interview that the person she turns to for pregnancy advice is her mom, Leslie Cockburn. Olivia explains why she feels little inferior when it comes to her mom’s own pregnancies.
“I have a great mom. She’s a good example of how to be a strong badass pregnant lady. But she sets the standards pretty high. She went all over the world for 60 Minutes, for ABC News, for Frontline, for years. So, when I’m worrying about like, ‘Am I allowed to get on the treadmill?,’ my mom is like, ‘I was in war zones with you guys.'”
Olivia then shared a harrowing story about when Leslie was pregnant with her. “The way most moms tell a cute story about something that happened at, like, a ballet recital, my mom likes to tell the story of when she was eight months pregnant with me, and we were on a plane that had a bomb somewhere in the Middle East. And she’s like, ‘Remember, you almost didn’t arrive because of the bomb?’ And then, you know, they landed, they evacuated the plane, there was no bombing. But I’m like, ‘That’s a terrifying story. Don’t share that with our new friends.'”
