Naomi Watts, 37, is now on pregnancy watch, and it’s largely due to the loose tops and ill-fitting dresses she’s worn out to recent events. She’s been on pregnancy watch since wearing two different frilly dresses with tummy coverage to the Oscars. We were even declaring her pregnant after she wore a poncho to the Tribeca film festival in late April.
Then we saw some high-res photos of Naomi in a sheer, but loose top in mid-May. You could see her stomach through it and it was flat.
Watts may just be wearing loose tops because they’re in style. Reese Witherspoon was called pregnant after she was seen in some loose clothing and it turns out that wasn’t true at all.
Watts has made some comments that she’d like to start a family, though, and Australian reports have her pregnant already:
The actress was in Sydney, Australia, last weekend attending best pal Nicole Kidman’s wedding to country star Keith Urban.
Rumours circulated after the stylish star was seen wearing a series of baggy garments and photographed leaving a Brentwood, California, fertility clinic.
Sydney’s Daily Telegraph newspaper reports it was the second time Watts had been spotted visiting the clinic and that she was “sporting a definite glow” when she attended the Shakespeare in the Park gala in New York City’s Central Park with beau Liev Schreiber on Thursday.
Watts was also seen visiting Chinese herbalist and fertility expert Lily Liu in Australia, who is renowned for her work assisting women who want to become pregnant.
The star recently admitted she was desperate for children, but was worried it might be too late to conceive: “I wish it could have happened a little bit sooner. I have wanted a family since I was 19.”
If she is pregnant it’s very soon along. She was photographed playing tennis on June 18th. Her top was pulling up and she did not have a stomach, although it’s a little hard to tell. She was seen at the MacBeth In The Park 2006 Summer Benefit on June 28th in an empire-waist dress, which surely helped feed the rumors.
We really doubt it’s true, although we hope it happens soon for her and Liev if they are indeed trying.
Here is Naomi in the photos we mentioned. She is seen with her boyfriend of over a year, actor Liev Schreiber, 38, and with Jessica Lang. Reader Millie let me know that Lang was not gracious about the latest remake of “King Kong” after having starred in the other remake from 1976. She said she wouldn’t be seeing Peter Jackson’s version of “King Kong” and considered it too commercial.
the funny thing is that if Reese, Jennifer Aniston or Nicole Kidman came out to an opening looking like Naomi at the Macbeth opening, I guarantee that every single tabloid would scream “Pregnant!” in big, bold letters. There are celebs everyone wants and expects to be pregnant so they’re declared pregnant the minute they get a little bloat, even if it’s not perceptible to people like me (for ex. Aniston never showed anything remotely similar to a real pregnancy, imo, she just had a too tight dress on). Then there are people like Naomi or Maggie Gyllenhall who I knew was pregnant a month before they announced it but virtually nobody paid any attention to her. I don’t know if Naomi is pregnant and maybe she isn’t but she surely looks more pregnant at the Macbeth opening than Nicole or Aniston ever did. She already looked bigger at the Omen premiere a month ago–it could be the effect of hormons too, if she’s undergoing fertility treatment. I can’t see anything on that tennis photo though I probably wouldn’t play tennis if I were pregnant. In any case, she looks happy despite the heat–gawker reported that she wouldn’t take her sweater off even though everyone was dying of heat at this event. She did, eventually, but I was wondering if she was still trying to cover herself.
