Olivia Wilde flaunted her growing baby bump at last night’s 86th annual Academy Awards. She wore a high-neck long black gown by Valentino and Lorraine Schwartz jewels to complete her Oscar look. “It was my favorite,” she told USA Today‘s Andrea Mandell. “So classy!”
Before revealing her outfit for the awards show, Wilde played a little joke with her fans via her Twitter account. She posted a picture of Homer Simpson from the animated television series, The Simpsons, with the caption, “Pic from my Oscar fitting.”
Wilde attended the event with fiancé Jason Sudeikis, who she met in May 2011. The Her actress attended the finale of Saturday Night Live while Sudeikis was still a cast member of the show. He was a performer on SNL from May 2005 to July 2013. Before making live appearances on the show, Sudeikis was originally a sketch writer. The couple confirmed they were dating in December, and announced their engagement in January 2013. In October 2013, the lovebirds revealed they were expecting their first child together. “I can’t wait for children,” she told Marie Claire. ” [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.'”
During the Golden Globe Awards, Wilde first announced she and Sudeikis were expecting a baby boy due in May. The couple came up with a clever way to remember the upcoming due date. “May the fourth be with you.” At the Golden Globes, the 29-year-old actress wowed the crowd in a sequined emerald green Gucci dress. Her baby bump was clearly visible underneath the skintight fabric. She attended the awards shows to support two of her films, Her and Rush. Both were nominated for Best Motion Picture.
Before meeting her fiancé, Wilde was married to Italian filmmaker and musician Tao Ruspoli. They married on June 7, 2003, when she was 19 years old. The couple separated Feb. 8, 2011 and divorced in September of the same year. Wilde mentioned that moving on after the divorce was hard, especially after she had spent much of her life with Ruspoli. The actress did not seek any spousal support and both parties reached an agreement on division of property. Regarding her divorce, the Rush actress said, “Learning to be by myself and be OK with it, and not need the validation of another human being, that has been the biggest challenge…”
Since then, Wilde said the divorce brought her to Jason Sudeikis, the great love of her life. The SNL performer is known for his work on the television series 30 Rock and for his roles in the films Horrible Bosses and We’re the Millers. He also appeared in the 2008 comedy What Happens in Vegas, alongside Cameron Diaz. He was also a voice actor on the Fox-animated comedy series The Cleveland Show. He was previously married to 30 Rock writer Kay Cannon; they separated in 2008 and divorced in 2010.
While Wilde wowed the crowd with her attire at the Oscars, Sudeikis kept it low-key in a classic Valentino tuxedo. The father-to-be snapped photos of his fiancée as she posed on the red carpet.
