Liev Schreiber confirms: Naomi's expecting
If Naomi won’t reveal anything, Liev will! In an appearance on Late Night with Conan O’Brien last evening, Liev Schreiber, 39, confirmed that he and Naomi Watts, 38, are expecting their first child, by saying, "Yes, I’m going to be a dad." No word on how far along Naomi is, or what they’re having, but Liev did share some funny anecdotes.

-The baby will not be named Liev – Liev says, "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!"
-He refers to Naomi as his girlfriend, but it’s believed that she’s actually his fiancee – she’s been wearing an engagement ring with the stone turned in as of late.
-Liev has tried to be helpful, but he says, "I’m trying to stay out of it all. I’m trying not to make anydecisions, [because] everything that I try to do in service of her orthe coming baby is wrong. So I really don’t even go to my house muchanymore."
– Liev mentions that since Naomi’s been pregnant, she wants to go out all the time. Referring to her as a "party girl," he says he made fun of her for being excited to go to the Oscars, but she said, "No, no – it’s a very auspicious thing that our embryo is going to be at the Oscars!"
