After nine years and two kids, Naomi Watts and Liev Schrieber may be getting ready to say “I do.”
“While Naomi and Liev have had their ups and downs, including a cancelled New Year’s Eve wedding right before 2008, they’ve finally worked out their differences and are rethinking marriage,” a friend of the couple reportedly told RadarOnline.
Watts, 45, and Schrieber, 46, have been together since 2005, when they met at the Met Costume Institute Gala. They have two sons, six-year-old Alexander and five-year-old Samuel, and seem to be raising their kids somewhat Jewishly: On a 2009 family trip to Israel Schreiber was seen wrapping tefillin with his older son at the kotel. The family also planted trees in Galilee with Jewish National Fund.
According to RadarOnline, the disaster that was Watts’ foray as Princess Diana for the aptly named biopic “Diana” ultimately brought the couple closer together.
“Naomi and Liev are more in love than they’ve ever been and are definitely serious about getting married,” the unnamed source said. “It’s a big step after all this time, but they’re ready to marry.”
