And the crown for king and queen of coparenting goes to … Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts! They may have separated nearly three years ago in September 2016, but the former couple — who are parents to sons Sasha Schreiber, 11, and Samuel Kai Schreiber, 10 — are making it work no matter what.
The 51-year-old actor recently opened up about his split from Naomi, 50, and how the two of them are getting along thanks to a lot of love and understanding. “We were a good balance that way,” the Ray Donovan star explained in the new issue of Hamptons Magazine, which features him on the cover. “I was very forthcoming and she was good at hauling me in. And we still have that relationship, and I’m very grateful to her for it.”
Liev even credited his ex-partner with being able to put up with him and his shenanigans. “I think maybe I go too far. I’m sure Naomi would probably say I go a little too far,” he dished. “That was the nice thing about Naomi and me.” Ha!
Even though Naomi and Liev are excelling at raising their kids, the Spotlight actor admitted that fatherhood still gives him a ton of anxiety. “It’s terribly, terribly, terribly difficult. I worry about everything,” he revealed to the outlet. “You worry about this and you worry about that. And the truth is, you don’t really need to worry that much. They are very capable.”
Liev added, “I mean, they have everything they need coming into this world to do what they intend to do. And they probably will do it regardless of what you throw their way.”
The beloved actor most recently opened up about he and Naomi’s kiddos while paying a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Liev told Ellen DeGeneres that while he’s amassed fame and fortune over the years, he’s come to terms with never being able to impress the boys. “You’re never cool to your own kids,” he hilariously admitted. “I don’t know anybody who is cool to their own kids. It’s like … I’ve just accepted the fact that it’s impossible.”
This family is too cute!
