Liev Schreiber confirmed the news on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" Monday Feb 26th, saying, "Yes, I'm going to be a dad."
The speculation has been confirmed, Liev Schreiber and girlfriend Naomi Watts are expecting their first child together. Instead of directly stated that Watts is carrying, the actor tend to say, "Yes, I'm going to be a dad."
The public confirmation was made by Schreiber during an appearance on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" Monday evening Feb 26th. "It's very exciting," the star said further on the news which has been being kept under wrap before.
No word on how far along Naomi is, nor the sex of the forthcoming baby. One thing for sure, the baby will not be named Liev. "It's an awful name," said Schreiber. "It's probably the most oft-mispronounced name in showbiz."
Schreiber, 39, and Watts, 38, met while shooting the romantic drama, "The Painted Veil," in China in 2005. Since then on they started dating and it's been widely believed that they've been engaged since she once was spotted wearing an engagement ring.
