Selflessness is gift of motherhood: Olivia

Actress Olivia Wilde’s priorities have changed ever since she has become a mother. She says selflessness is a quality that comes naturally once a woman delivers a child.

The 30-year-old gave birth to her first baby, boy Otis, with fiance Jason Sudeikis in April. ‘The amazing thing about becoming a parent is that you will never again be your own first priority,’ Wilde said at an event here, reports

‘The gift of motherhood is the selflessness that it introduces you to, and I think that’s really freeing. And in terms of being a storyteller, I think it allows you to put yourself in other people’s shoes...the empathy that it slugs you with, being a mother. And I think it makes you a better storyteller,’ she added. Motherhood has also helped Wilde ‘take my place in the world a little bit more seriously’. ‘I hope I can tell stories that somehow benefit the world that Otis will grow up in,’ she said.
