Naomi Watts: ‘I Want a Daughter’

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

NAOMI Watts wants a daughter.

The actress — who has two sons, Alexander, four and three year old Sammy with her partner Liev Schreiber — says she would only have another baby if she knew she could have a girl.

“I always knew I’d be the mother of two boys. I’m 43 now and I don’t know if having any more would work. There are still fights and struggles all the time but I feel that I am coming in to the light,” she said.

“If I knew that I could get pregnant and I knew that I was going to have a girl, I would definitely go for it.”

There are only 18 months between her sons and Naomi confessed she was surprised at how close together she had her children and how “tough” it can be to raise boys.

“It took a while,” she said.

“We were both surprised they came so close together. But I’m glad now. They both have big personalities, they demand a lot and fight with each other, so it’s actually quite tough.”

    I have two boys.Four year old twins and it can be very intense at times they  do like to fight and runaway from me in stores ,thinking it’s a great game ,not knowing the danger they could put themselfs in.I have to be “ON” alot. The upside is I have two amazing sons that love to cuddle and are just plane sweet so I am very lucky ,but it does seem that girls are easy compared to boys .
