While Naomi Watts has kept mum on the subject of pregnancy rumors, plenty of other folks have been doing the talking for her. Naomi’s Oscars gown was Escada, and a rep for the house issued this press release on Sunday: “The ESCADA gown set off her most precious new asset – the baby she is expecting with longtime boyfriend Liev Schreiber.”
Monday night, Schreiber appeared on Conan O’Brien and confirmed the news himself: “Yes, I’m going to be a dad,” he said. “Very exciting.” According to Schreiber, Naomi commented that “it’s a very auspicious thing that our embryo is going to be at the Oscars.” See, you know she’s Australian, because she says things like “auspicious.” Attractive women from America don’t know what that word means. Say “auspicious” to Jessica Biel at the Oscars and she’ll be like, “God bless you,” but you won’t notice because you’ll be panicking, having been momentarily blinded by her dress.
Congratulations to the couple, and we wish them a happy and healthy pregnancy.
