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.
