Olivia Wilde did not have trouble teaching her son about equality.

In a new interview with Yahoo Beauty, the Drinking Buddies star explained that when it comes to teaching her 2-year-old son Otis about feminism, she is "just embracing the perspective he was born with."

"I like to think he’s already a little feminist. And he is," she said. "I want to promote the idea that the definition of feminism is equality and it’s something that’s not difficult to teach children because they are born with that sensibility. They are only taught to separate people and value them differently once they get older."

During the interview, Wilde also addressed her controversial 2014 Glamour magazine breastfeeding cover, sharing that she'd "learned a lot" since then, and never intended to "shame women who had chosen not to breastfeed for whatever reason."

Wilde added that while "people should be allowed to breastfeed wherever they want, whenever they want ... there should be no pressure on women to breastfeed, or they are made to seem like they are terrible mothers. I think that’s really unfair."

Meanwhile, Otis is about to become a big brother as Wilde and her fiance, Jason Sudeikis, announced in April that they are expecting baby No. 2!

ET caught up with Sudeikis at the Angry Birds Movie premiere in May, where he explained that the couple's son is overjoyed with the baby news... even if he doesn't get it quite yet.

"He knows that it's something in an egg," the 40-year-old actor shared. "We just used metaphors in the movie [to explain it to him]. That's all."
