Olivia Wilde at Courage in Journalism awards (Getty Images)
Olivia Wilde showed off her little belly on Tuesday night, making her first official public appearance since news broke she and fiancé Jason Sudekis, 38, were expecting a child together. The "Rush" star looked gorgeous, showing off her still-petite frame in a Cushnie Et Ochs dress, which she paired with Jimmy Choo heels.
The actress stepped out to co-host the 2013 International Women's Media Foundation's Courage in Journalism Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel with Glamour magazine's editor in chief, Cindi Leive.
Inside the event, attendees tell omg! that Olivia "was glowing."
"During a break for dinner, she talked with guests, and when congratulated on her exciting news, she would thank them, and talk about how happy she was," says one onlooker.
For Wilde, who's known for being an activist, hosting the event hit close to home.
"I am so honored to be with you here tonight," Wilde, 29, told the audience as festivities kicked off. "My mother, Leslie Cockburn, has been an investigative journalist for over 35 years. She spent her life traveling into officially off-limits territories to break major stories … all of this while raising three children with my father, who is also a journalist.
"She was often criticized for working in such dangerous places while raising a family, and yet I never felt anything but proud. My mother was working to help people, that's all I needed to know," continued Wilde. "Because of my parents, I consider service a human responsibility. I grew up understanding how tough it is to be a truth seeker, and tonight I am thrilled to be here with you to thank you for your service."
Guess we know what kind of values Olivia will instill in her little girl or boy.
The 2013 honorees included Najiba Ayubi, a 45-year-old news director from Afghanistan, Nour Kelze, a 25-year-old Syrian photojournalist, and Bopha Phorn, 28, a Cambodian newspaper reporter. Maria Shriver also presented the IWMF Lifetime Achievement Award to Edna Machirori, the first black female newspaper editor in Zimbabwe.
