This is an Evan Rachel Wood post [Feat; Nikki Reed]

Motherhood certainly agrees with Evan Rachel Wood, who just came off a well-deserved break after giving birth to her first child in July.

That might explain the relaxed beauty emanating from the actress as she enjoyed a lunch out with her six-month-old son and her mother Sara Lynn on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

The 26-year-old - who is known for her edgy style - was dressed in a simple yet festive crew-necked russet-hued jumper that brought out the red highlights in her recently cropped nut-brown hair.

Evan was first seen sporting her new pixie cut just a few weeks after delivering her first child with actor husband Jamie Bell at home in a natural birth.

The straight, chin-length bob was pushed back behind her ears on this occasion.

Rugged, lace-up black boots added a grunge edge to her casual ensemble.

Evan wore minimal make-up behind those round-framed shades and showed off a glowing complexion as she pushed her son's pram.

Her mother, who is also an actress, director and acting coach, was casually styled in blue jeans, a striped T-shirt and black jacket, while keeping her blonde hair partially concealed beneath a black baseball cap.

Evan - who completed three films before the birth of her son - seems to enjoying every precious moment she has with him.

The actress admits to feeling 'separation anxiety' whenever she's away from her baby.

'I’ve been having separation anxiety because I’m so used to him being right here all the time,' Evan, pointing to her chest, told Us Weekly in November.

She added: 'He's smiling and laughing. He started rolling over. He’s grabbing things. You know, he’s making oohs and aahs.'

While Evan has yet to reveal the name she and Jamie bestowed upon him, she indicated that the tot played a part in naming himself.

'We asked him while he was in the womb if that’s what he wanted his name to be -- to kick -- and he did, so there you go!'

The Mildred Pierce star wed Bell in a small ceremony on October 30, 2012. They had dated in 2006, broke up for five years before rekindling the romance in 2011.

As far as her film career goes, Evan will next been in the romance Barefoot, which opens in US theatres on February 21.
