Pregnant Naomi Watts motors around SoHo on a Vespa

I feel sorry for Naomi Watts. Not only does she appear to be uncomfortably pregnant, but she’s constantly described that way. Or as a lot of the press has started phrasing it, “heavily pregnant.” I really, really, really don’t care for that way of putting it. I assume they all think they’re clever, describing a pregnant woman both in terms of saying, “she’s very pregnant” and “boy is she huge.” I’m not a fan.

Naomi and boyfriend Liev Schreiber have been in New York this past week where they’ve been spotted out and about. Naomi was supposedly trying to “hide” her large stomach with a huge bag (ironically from the Container Store) – but frankly the bag had to go somewhere, and the odds were good it’d land near her midsection. I seriously doubt she thought it’d distract from the bump or anything.

I’m not sure if it’s particularly safe or totally harmless, but Naomi and Liev have been negotiating Manhattan on a Vespa. It’s certainly nontraditional, if nothing else. Here’s pictures of the couple taken on Friday and Saturday. Images thanks to Bauer-Griffin.

    I suppose we’re all going to be subjected to eleventy months of her obscenely enormous pregnancy bump like last time…..gawd, it went on and on and on and on

    See, when I see the words “heavily pregnant” I don’t think “fattie” I think “OMG, I feel so bad for that poor woman she must be so f-cking uncomfortable and why is Liev being such a tool making her ride on a friggin’ Vespa, get out while you can, Naomi.”

    I think she looks great, too. She wouldn’t be riding around on the back of a Vespa if she didn’t want to.

    Call me paranoid but I wouldn’t even ride my mountain bike on smooth sidewalks at that stage. Too many crazy asshole Lance wannabes zipping by us mere mortals and almost toppling them (at least in my city). There is zero protection of the belly there.

    I heard Liev is a big jerk not sure if those reports are true. He seems kind of smarmy can’t put my finger on it.
    Run from her latest movie ‘Funny Games’ I think it’s called. It was really disturbing and I think she needs to get herself a new agent.
