“Otis loves to watch me do my makeup and he likes to just sit there and stare at me doing it. The other day we were playing with his Magic Markers and he started doing his makeup with markers,” she says with a laugh. “And I was like, ‘That’s not bad! That’s an interesting shade you chose.’ ”
One thing the House alum does to stay connected to Otis when she’s away on business? Incorporates his products into her own routine.
“I love the smell of all the baby stuff. It’s all so lovely,” says Wilde, who is also the face of Revlon. “[Otis has] been using [Mustela baby lotion] since he was tiny. And actually, when I go away for work and I can’t be with him for a couple of days, I bring a little tub of it and wear it.
“I don’t know if this sounds super creepy, but I wear it as moisturizer on my arms so I vaguely smell like him,” she adds. “People are probably like, ‘Why does this lady smell like diapers?’ ”
Wilde shares that one thing making her feel pretty at the moment is pregnancy itself.
“There’s something really beautiful about pregnancy,” the fashion-forward actress shares. “It is a time when you feel very connected to your body so right now — not having reached the point where I am definitely physically pregnant — I feel beautiful being in that space.
“And that’s kind of it, it feels great,” she continues. “This is what makes me feel best: when I can be in that space and be pregnant, but also be living my life and running around and working hard and being a good mom to my son and just feeling like, ‘Wow, I have all these internal and external factors that are making me feel great.’ ”
