Olivia Wilde has spoken about how she got into shape after the birth of her son Otis, admitting she “is a mother, and I look like one”.

The 31-year-old actress welcomed son Otis, her first child with fiancé Jason Sudeikis, in April.

While the stunning star already appears to have shed her pregnancy pounds, she admits she still hasn’t regained the figure she once had.

However, Olivia is proud that her body reflects her parental status.

“I am not in perfect shape,” Olivia said in a new interview with Shape magazine. “In fact, I’m softer than I’ve ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot. The photos of me in this magazine have been generously constructed to show my best angles and I assure you, good lighting has been warmly embraced. The truth is, I’m a mother, and I look like one.”

Olivia poses on the front of the publication wearing a miniskirt and bra top. And the Tron: Legacy star spoke about how she lost her baby weight, crediting her trim physique mainly to breastfeeding.

“After giving birth, I joined the ranks of millions of new mothers when I moaned, “Why do I still look pregnant? Is there another one stuck in there?” ’ she said. “But luckily, that part doesn’t last long. Basically, for the first few months, your body has that covered, and you can just let it do the work while you focus on keeping the kid alive and occasionally washing your hair. Breast-feeding helps, in the most intense way. You feel your uterus contracting while the baby nurses. Your belly starts to go down. Your thighs become slightly less thunderous.”
