Pregnant Olivia Wilde reveals she is expecting a daughter as she voices support for Hillary Clinton

Actress Olivia Wilde has revealed she is expecting a baby girl as she voiced support for US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

The Hollywood star, who is engaged to actor Jason Sudeikis, announced she was pregnant with her second child earlier this year.

In a post on Twitter, Olivia revealed she will be welcoming a daughter as she retweeted a campaign video for Mrs Clinton.

The video features clips of Republican candidate Donald Trump using derogatory remarks towards women and ends with the question: “Is this the president we want for our daughters?”

Olivia wrote: “As someone who is about to have a daughter, this hits me deep in my core. #NeverTrump.”

The actress announced she was pregnant in April by posting a touching photograph on Instagram as she sat in bed with her young son Otis.

She and former Saturday Night Live star Jason got engaged in 2013. She was previously married to Italian film-maker Tao Ruspoli.
