UPDATE: They welcomed a son and have named him Alexander Peter Schreiber! He was born at 3:59 p.m. in Los Angeles, weighs 8 lbs., 4 oz, and is 22.5 inches long, according to a rep for Naomi.
Life & Style reports the exciting news:
Naomi Watts delivered a healthy baby in Los Angeles early Thursday morning, July 26th, an insider tells Life & Style exclusively! According to the insider, the arrival was slightly ahead of schedule.
“Naomi was planning on giving birth next week– her due date was early August — but since she insisted on delivering naturally, she knew there was a chance she would have the baby before the due date. That’s what wound up happening.”
The insider says mother, child and the baby’s father, Naomi’s longtime love Liev Schreiber, are resting comfortably at a hospital near Naomi’s Brentwood, Calif., estate.
The couple is keeping quiet about the sex of their baby, which the insider says even they didn’t know until the child’s birth. Says the insider: “This is a dream come true for both of them and they’ve done everything in their power to make it as special as possible, right down to staying in the dark about the baby’s sex right up until Naomi gave birth.”
Congratulations! Can’t wait to hear if it’s a boy or a girl and what name they’ve chosen!
