She may not have all the answers when it comes to balancing kids and career, but at 41, Naomi Watts is no longer on the hunt for perfection.
“I see myself as any other working woman. Every day I’m struggling to get it right, do the best I can, make the right choices for work, be a good mother and have time for my relationship with Liev [Schreiber],” she admits in SHE‘s May issue.
“I’m never sure whether I’m doing any of it right, but I’ve finally got to the age where at least I know that I’m doing my best.”
Although fulfilling her acting duties while raising sons Alexander ‘Sasha’ Pete, 2½, and Samuel Kai, 16 months, is quite the juggling act, Watts would be willing to add a third child to the bunch — under one condition!
“If I could guarantee myself a girl, I’d say yes,” she reveals. “But I’d be sure to have another boy! I always knew I’d have boys.”
And for now Watts is happy to concentrate her efforts on her testosterone-fueled household — including fiancé Schreiber, whom she insists on spending quality time with at least one night a week.
“We’re not party people,” she says of their low-key date nights. “My ideal night in is a good meal, a glass of wine and Liev. That’s heaven for me.”
