Since their engagement went public, both Wilde and Sudeikis have fielding a number of questions about what they see for their future. Wilde touched upon children in an interview with Marie Claire. "We've discussed all our ideals and hopes. I can't wait for children," Wilde said. "I'm open-minded about how many, but three, which I love, is like a little party…. There's no strict plan for anything in my life. What happens, happens."
"[Jason] is so good with kids," Wilde added. "I've never before experienced looking at someone and thinking, 'That's who I want to raise a child with.' "
Wilde and Sudeikis met on the set of Saturday Night Live, while he was still a major player on the sketch show and Wilde had hosting duties. Six months later, they began dating. In January, Sudeikis proposed. The marriage, which has yet to get a date, will be the second for both Wilde and Sudeikis. Neither actor has children from their previous marriages.
