It’s a girl for Olivia Wilde & Jason Sudeikis! But in announcing the exciting news, the actress didn’t just leave it at that. In fact, the expectant mom managed to slyly slip in a MAJOR political endorsement for Hillary Clinton in her gender reveal — and we have to say, it’s pretty brilliant! See Olivia’s powerful message here.
Taking to Twitter on Sept. 24, Olivia Wilde, 32, announced to her fans that she and her fiancé Jason Sudeikis, 41, are expecting a baby girl! But there was SO much more to her announcement. The actress also made it super clear that she does NOT want to see her daughter grow up with Donald Trump, 70, in the White House.

Olivia and Jason are already proud parents to their son Otis Alexander, 2, but now that they’re about to have a baby girl, it seems Olivia has become EXTRA aware of our current political climate — and for good reason! “As someone who is about to have a daughter, this hits me deep in my core. #NeverTrump,” Olivia tweeted with a link to one of Hillary Clinton’s, 68, promotional videos highlighting Trump’s misogyny.
In the clip, Hillary shows footage of young girls with sound bites from her opponent’s interviews and comments. The video ends with one question: “Is this the president we want for our daughters?” Olivia, an avowed feminist, has been on the Hillary bandwagon for a while now, discussing her support for the presidential candidate on multiple occasions.
In fact, she told the Daily Beast back in April, “I think she learned a lot from the last election, I think she’s done a tremendous amount of work since then. The fact that she feels the plight of women and girls as the most important issue of the 21st century is a huge reason why I’m supporting her.”
And especially with a daughter on the way, we TOTALLY get her unwavering commitment to the Hillz! We are so excited for Olivia and Jason and cannot wait to meet their precious baby girl any day now!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you surprised Olivia’s having a girl? What do you think of her powerful message?
