Olivia Wilde Claims Her Baby Bump Is A "Badge of Honor"

Olivia Wilde is only a month away from giving birth to her first child with Husband Jason Sudeikis, and she has plenty to say about her pregnancy experience.

Although the 30 year-old's Lucy Magazine cover shows no sign of a baby bump (obviously taken months previously) she spoke candidly about still feeling like a "goddess" after nearly nine months of carrying her unborn child.

The 'Cowboys & Aliens' actress also admitted that she liked to show off the changes her body was going through.

"I just thought, oh I'm going to hide this forever. But I ended up getting kind of excited to show the bump, as a badge of pride," she said in the May 2014 issue. "Like 'I'm a woman! Look at me making a human! I am a goddess!'"

The expecting star expressed how pregnancy didn't just affect her physical appearance either.

"Pregnancy does shed away all of the bulls-t. It gives you more empathy because you look at everyone and you think, you were a baby!" Wilde explained. "Pregnancy brings you into this sort of commune-you feel connected to women in a way that you never have."

'The Change-Up' actress doesn't forget to mention the connection a pregnant women feels with her unborn child either: "He's moving around in there and no one else can tell-it's a little secret friendship."
