Naomi Watts: Relationship ‘isn’t all a bed of roses’

Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber While Naomi Watts admits her husband and fellow actor Liev Schreiber is a "brilliant dad" to their children, Sasha, five, and four-year-old Sammy Kai, and the quartet have a "good" family life, she says they also have their "struggles." She said: "Our family life is good, Liev is a brilliant dad, but like any family we have had our struggles and a relationship between two successful people who travel and are passionate about what they do takes work - it's not all a bed of roses." But the 44-year-old star insists she and Liev, 45, still "hold onto our romance" and she would love to add a daughter to their family unit in the future. She added to You magazine: "I would love a daughter and it would be great to adopt but I kind of feel that my boys are finally getting on so well - so is it the right time? Liev is great - we still hold on to our romance. It was love at first sight for me. In fact I had a big crush on him before I met him at a ball. We had friends who had been trying to set us up for ages, but it was never the right time until that night. We exchanged numbers - I was in LA at the time and he was in New York - and at first we got to know each other through emails and phone calls."

    Naomi wouldn’t call Liev her husband because they aren’t married.If she did say isn’t a bed of roses my guess she means they are breaking up or will soon.

    I know a lot of people who say they’re married and have a husband (usually women) because it’s wishful thinking – they think by living together that rates them the same as people who took a vow. Say goodbye to him Naomi. If he didn’t care enough to get down on a knee and offer you a ring, he’s just not that interested.

    Even though she’s beautiful, I’ve always felt that he wasn’t totally into her because he didn’t marry her… Even Brad gave Angelina a ring and they’ve been very vocal about being opposed to marriage.

    how do you know he hasn’t asked multiple times and she doesn’t want to be married?
