The actor shares the 2-year-old with comedian John Mulaney. Their relationship and the timing of her pregnancy was met with intense scrutiny, given the proximity of Olivia's pregnancy with John's divorce from Anna Marie Tendler.

"It was a surprise pregnancy. I did not have any doctor team ready. I had no idea," Olivia said on the She MD podcast to Dr. Thaïs Aliabadi, the OB-GYN who ended up delivering Olivia's baby. "It was the most amazing birth. The labor and delivery was a dream."

When asked if it was an "easy pregnancy," Olivia replied, "It was, surprisingly, but in different ways it was difficult. Honestly, [Aliabadi] held my hand through the whole thing...she really guided me along the way, not just with what was going on physically, but emotionally as well."

"I looked nothing like what I see people look like when they're pregnant. I had a six-day window where it looked cute," Olivia continued, noting Dr. Aliabadi's celebrity clientele. "I was wearing the same sweatpants and the same flannel shirt everywhere because I just couldn't get it together."

Noting the "greater understanding" people have about life in the public eye due to the contemporary nature of fame, Olivia continued, "I had had friends who were pregnant at the same time or had their babies after me, and yet they snapped back like that. Or their pregnancy outfits were so cute. Or they already had their nurseries done. The nursery wasn't done until days before, I mean days before...I'm sure it's an illusion, but I don't even have the energy to make it."

"I put on 60 pounds — that's when I stopped counting. I stayed inside a lot during my pregnancy, and I was really craving pizza and Lucky Charms. My body did not snap back afterwards, I did not lose the weight. Right now I'm doing a lot of laser treatments on my stomach," Olivia added, describing the upper part of her stomach as a "deflated balloon."

When asked when she was planning on having children, Olivia replied, "I wasn't. I'd frozen my eggs when I was 33 and 39." In fact, it was a friend of a friend who had cancer before Olivia that encouraged her to freeze her eggs the first time. That being said, of the arrival of Malcolm, Olivia emphasized, "That was a blessing."
