Naomi Watts reveals partner Liev wishes he could breastfeed

No, we don’t mean an inappropriate case of ‘bitty’! Eww. Naomi Watts revealed on the Ellen DeGeneres show that Liev Schrieber is a very ‘hands-on’ dad, but there’s one thing he can’t do, but wants to: breastfeeding.

‘Liev is a very hands-on dad,’ Watts told Ellen of the couple's two sons, Alexander, 1, and Samuel, 2 months.

‘He does take care of Sasha [their nickname for Alexander] in the night, but he can't do Sammy because I'm breastfeeding,’ she says.

‘Although with the first one, he was like, “I want the man boob.”’

When Ellen laughingly admitted she’d never heard of one, Watts added: ‘You can get those things. You can attach them and they feed through a tube!

It's to create the bonding experience,’ she explained.

We’re sure Liev will be delighted she chose to share that info on national TV!

Sounds like Naomi could do with the help though – she admitted she’s not been getting much sleep since Samuel was born on 13 December.

‘I'm feeding all through the night,’ she said. ‘He’s still eating every three to four hours.’
