The multi-talented Olivia Wilde knows a thing or two about multi-tasking. In fact, during her visit to The Daily Show on Thursday, the actress revealed that she was eight-and-a-half-months pregnant while she was shooting certain scenes from her new horror film The Lazarus Effect. Wilde joked to host Jon Stewart that being pregnant was "a whole other horror movie."

Wilde—who looked effortlessly chic in a black dress during her appearance—chatted about both her foray into horror ("I wanted to try this ... I love the genre when it's done really well"), as well as motherhood. "It's so much fun, it's amazing," Wilde said of being a mom to her 10-month-old son, Otis, adding, "He's wonderful." The star, who called parenting "a balancing act," acknowledged how much daily life changes and, as she accurately put it, "There's no such thing as a leisurely brunch anymore."

When asked if she and fiancé Jason Sudeikis will add to their brood, Wilde hilariously responded, "If I can keep one alive, I'll be really proud of myself."
