Olivia Wilde is having a girl!

It’s a girl!

Olivia Wilde revealed that she’s having a baby daughter in a low-key announcement on Twitter earlier this week.


The 32-year-old actress was responding to a tweet posted by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who had shared a video that featured sound bites from Donald Trump.


Announcing the sex of her baby like this comes as no surprise, as Wilde is a feminist who has spoken up about female empowerment time and time again. In fact, she is raising her 2-year-old son Otis to be a feminist as well.


“I like to think he’s already a little feminist,” she said in an interview with Yahoo Beauty. “And he is. He’s a really good guy.

“I want to promote the idea that the definition of feminism is equality and it’s something that’s not difficult to teach children because they are born with that sensibility... Luckily, I’m just embracing the perspective he was born with.”

Her long-time fiancé, 40-year-old actor Jason Sudeikis, spoke to People about how proud he is about how Wilde is raising their son Otis. “When I look at Olivia and the way she pulls of all these things—it’s gonna be easy for him to grow up in a house of love and respect because I feel that way about his mum,” he said.


Wilde and Sudeikis met at an afterparty for Saturday Night Live back when he was still a cast member. On the Howard Stern Show, Olivia told Stern that she was feeling a little out of place at the party when Sudeikis approached her, and gave her "the greatest line of all time":

"He came up to me and said, 'Whatever you're looking for, you don't need it.' And he walked away.

...He was really like cool. He played it really cool."
