Liev Schreiber has confirmed he and girlfriend Naomi Watts are expecting their first child together.
There have been many rumours lately about Naomi’s noticeably fuller figure. She appeared at the Oscars on Sunday night wearing a butter coloured Escada dress that showcased her bump and then a PR Rep for Escada, mistakenly sent out a press note confirming what everyone already knew.
Liev appeared on The Conan O’Brien show on Monday where he confirmed the happy news saying, “I’m going to be a dad.
Very exciting! “It’s a strange thing about women. You can take a complete wall-flower, a quiet girl and get them pregnant and then they want to go out all the time! “So I gave her grief about going to the Oscars and she said, ‘No, no, it’s a very auspicious thing’ that our ’embryo’ I guess, was going to be going to the Oscars.” When asked whether the couple had thought about any names he replied, “I’m trying to stay out of it all. I’m trying not to make any decisions. “I find everything I try to do in service of her or the coming baby is wrong. I really don’t even go to my house much anymore.”
When O’Brien asked if they would consider passing the unique name Liev on to their offspring he added, “No, it’s a terrible name. It’s probably the most mis-pronounced name in all of show business. It’s bad enough that I have gone through that for 15 years. There won’t be any Liev juniors. It’s not like George, you can call five kids George. You can’t really call anyone Liev, you shouldn’t call one child that, I don’ t think!”
