Naomi Watts Pregnant

Liev Schreiber has confirmed he and girlfriend Naomi Watts are expecting their first child together. Watts sparked rumors she was pregnant after appearing on the red carpet at the Oscar ceremony on Sunday with a noticeably fuller figure.

Schreiber appeared on talk show Late Night With Conan O'Brien 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."
