  • Mr. Blonde

    I think her partner would be upset if she named their son after her ex boyfriend that cheated on her

  • Mr. Blonde

    That was directed to #5 by the way

  • Regina

    Why would she named him after Heath? That would be incredibly cheesy.

  • wish

    Saw her interview and i must say that she didn’tcare about her career at all.Alll she talkrd about is her kids and having another.Just because your career is off track that don’t mean that you have to mess it up by having kids,Also she is nasty person by tracking her boyfriend that way. if take to take two take care kids these days.So don’t she get upset when she want start working again.

  • Idani

    Congrats Naomi and Liev for your new son!

  • whoa wish

    Wish, #23

    Whoa. You got all that from an interview? Wow.

    You know what I got from your post? You can’t write, you can’t punctuate, you can’t proofread, you are careless, and you have cooties in your future.

  • Jaffacake has had too much rum

    Get a life. If People Magazine had an exclusive they would have headlined it. They didn’t. Jared did. Get over it!

    If you don’t like his blog, don’t read it.

  • Huh?

    Jaffa is correct: People has had it as its top story on its site for almost 5 hours. Sorry Jared, you didn’t get an exclusive.

  • Joy

    Congratulations Liev & Naomi! what a great family!

  • Laura

    She left Heath because he wouldn’t marry her. He was so much younger and she thought he wasnt ready for kids. It was like a kick in the teeth when Michelle got pregnant immediately after they hooked up and had a kid a couple of years before Naomi could knock herself up. Unfortunately Liev doesnt love her enough to marry her either. Having more than one **stard kids is embarrassing. Yes, even if you are Saint Angelina.

  • Frida

    #29 Laura: You know not everyone wants to get married. That doesn’t mean you can’t have kids. Don’t be so incredibly oldfashioned!

  • eliza

    Wonderful news. Congratulations, Naomi and Liev!

  • Idani

    Laura @ 12/14/2008 at 5:52 pm

    What a mean spirited person you are. Families now days come in all sorts of groupings. Married, unmarried, gay, interracial etc. To call a child a b***d shows what an ignorant, judgmental, narrow-minded moron you are.

  • laura

    Congratulations to Naomi and Liev! Her little Alexander is adorable and I’m sure this new baby will be as well.

  • to 18 and 19

    just rememer you’ve obviously been reading this “crappy blog” or you wouldn’t have posted. word to the wise.

  • LolaSvelt

    #16, there was this rumour going around saying that Heath Ledger cheated on Naomi Watts with Heath Ledger. I don’t think that’s true. They split up before filming Brokeback Mountain.

  • to laura

    my, judgemental aren’t we? you think that liev has to marry naomi in order to prove that he loves her? sorry to break this to you, but marriage is no guarantee of love. nor is it any guarantee that a man and woman will stay together for good. just look at the divorce rates. and while i think of it where exactly do you get off referring to any child as a **stard? who are you god!! or wait, let me guess, you’re one of those right wing idiots who are “supposedly” christians.

  • CR30.01

    Congratulations to the couple!


    Who cares if their not married ! Heath and her must have been on good terms when he died she went to his funeral am i right?

  • anon1214

    I wouldn’t be surprised if she did give the baby Heath’s name, seeing as that she obviously loved him enough to consider starting a family with him. Obviously Michelle did get pregnant soon after she started dating Heath, but Heath said it was NOT planned, so don’t try to make it sound like Heath did it to hurt Naomi. And no, Heath did NOT leave Naomi for Michelle. They split before he started doing BBM. Since a lot of people seem to belive this, here is a direct quote from Naomi in Nov. 2004, AFTER they split:

    “I think it’s about life experience and not about age. I fell in love with a soul and a person and his life experience was rich enough that it stimulated me. I have nothing but good things to say about my romance with Heath Ledger. We loved each other. I’m close with his family; he’s close with mine. He is a friend and we’ll always remain in contact.” –Naomi Watts

    No mention of cheating, huh?? STOP trashing a man who is no longer here to defend himself.

    Sorry I went off topic. Congrats to the beautiful family!!!

  • anon1214

    To Laura: Give Heath Ledger credit where credit is due: at least he loved her enough to not want to give less than 100%. I think he wasn’t ready, so he wouldn’t commit. He was only 25. Why don’t people see this? I just got really sad thinking about how Heath will never get to experience having another child….totally off the subject, I know.

  • Anon

    I hope she did name the baby Heath, just to tick off Michelle. I’d LOVE to see MW reaction to that.

  • gerard Vandenberg
