Naomi Watts is a quality actress, a cool chick and pretty darn good looking to boot.
So what’s she doing with Liev Schreiber?
Moreover, what are all these celebrities doing getting knocked up before they’re married? Or in this case, even engaged? Stephen Colbert was right to put these unwed baby mamas on notice:
- Amanda Peet (now married to David Benioff)
- Keri Russell (now married to Shane Dreary)
- Jennifer Meyer (fiancee of Tobey Maguire)
- Salma Hayek (fiancee of François-Henri Pinault)
- Maggie Gyllenhaal (fiancee of Peter Sarsgaard)
The list goes on and on. Our point? We’re not sure. Just that someone’s gotta get married and have kids in the right order, don’t you think?
Anyway, Schreiber, who is expecting his first child with Watts, can take comfort in the fact that his girlfriend (they’re not even engaged) isn’t being a big pain during pregnancy.
Asked if Watts, 38, has been experiencing any strange cravings, Schreiber, 39, said: “No. She’s great. In fact, I’ve never seen anyone handle a pregnancy so well. She’s amazing.”
Liev is apparently used to seeing women handle pregnancy.
Schreiber was speaking Wednesday at a Drama Desk Awards nomination event in New York City (he is nominated for his role in the Broadway revival of Talk Radio).
He told People magazine he would be with the show through June 24 – because after that, “I’m going to have a baby.”
Actually, she is. But nice try. So have Liev and Watts – a couple since 2005 – been making any special preparations for their impending arrival?
“Nope,” he said. “We’re just rollin’ with it.”
That’s how Liev Schreiber rolls.
Nor have they selected a name. We recommend Jayden James.
“We don’t even know the sex yet,” he said.
One thing is for sure: The baby won’t be named Liev.
“It’s an awful name,” Schreiber told Conan O’Brien in February. “It’s probably the most oft-mispronounced name in showbiz.”
True, it gives the surname of Kristine Lefebvre a run for its money.
