Olivia Wilde stars on the front of US Glamour's September issue but the 30-year-old actress is no ordinary cover girl.

Wilde, who gave birth to baby Otis in April, was photographed wearing dresses from Lanvin, Prada and Louis Vuitton while breastfeeding her son in the shoot for magazine.

"Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn't complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that," she explained in her interview with Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive.

"Breastfeeding is the most natural thing. I don't know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast. It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we've been discussing - that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed. [But] I mean, I certainly don't really look like that when I'm [typically] breastfeeding. And there's usually a diaper involved."

Wilde's got no worries about being a working mum, either. Who does she look to for inspiration? Her own mother.

"My mom is such a badass working mother," she says. "That inspired me when I was pregnant. I wasn't going to sacrifice myself because I was becoming a mother."

As for her future wedding (Wilde is engaged to actor Jason Sudeikis), she's still in the planning phase.

"We're engaged, but no specific plans yet - we just have to find the time to put it together. In many ways, a child is more of a commitment."

Olivia Wilde appears on the cover of Glamour's September issue, on newsstands nationwide on August 12 and available now digitally at glamour.com/app.
