[Article] Naomi Watts knew she would have sons

- The Hamilton Spectator

The 48-year-old actress has boys Sasha, nine, Sammy, eight, with her estranged husband Liev Schreiber, whom she split from last year following 11 years of marriage, and has admitted she always had an inkling that she would mother two kids.

Speaking to Red Magazine, 'The Ring' star said: "I always knew I'd be a mum of two boys. Being a mum is about guiding them but also staying out of the way. And I'm a stickler for manners. The British in me."

Although she and Liev have decided to go their separate ways, she's adamant she's "doing OK" with the healing process following their split and the pair of them are determined to remain on amicable terms for the sake of their young kids......(read on)

She explained: "Right now I'm at a point where I'm healing and just wanting to protect the family unit, and we're doing, so far, a pretty good job with that. We have huge love and respect for one another and high hopes for it to remain that way going forward."

However, the blonde beauty has no intention of getting back on the dating scene yet.

She said: "[Dating] just seems completely frivolous and counterproductive and just not really in my world right now."

And Naomi is using the time she has to herself to focus on her career - but she's decided she will only take on projects that she can "connect" with.

She said recently: "I'm here to tell the stories. Not just to go to work and get paid by great actors and directors; it's more than that. It has to be stuff that you're connecting with, if it's bringing something back into your own life.

"If it's not growing me, then what's the point?"

It irks me that they got it wrong or just assumed they had been "married" for 11 yrs and he's her estranged husband. Naomi said herself she didn't believe a ring and certificate would make them any stronger; I really admire her for that. But maybe they just made a mistake. It's not really that important in the long run.

Nonetheless, this reminds me of an InStyle interview she did back in 2004-ish. I have the magazine saved! Obviously she wasn't a mom yet. She said she felt like she'd be the mom of boys. I think Naomi might be a little psychic! There's a few other things she said in the past that came true, too! :-)

Would really like her to have a daughter, so that her feminine beauty can be inherited but boys are fine too.

Yes, there is another mistake that the media always make, she and Liev didn't meet on the set of The Painted Veil, they met the first time at the MET ball where it all began.

The director John Curran of The Painted Veil is a good friend and Naomi talked him into casting Liev as Charlie Townsend so that she could be with him during the making of the film in China.
