Father-of-two Liev Schreiber is doing what’s best for his sons, Alexander “Sasha” Schreiber, 11, and Samuel Schreiber, 9, following his split from longtime partner Naomi Watts. According to a new Life & Style report, the actor recently moved back in with his ex-girlfriend to “co-parent their children under the same roof.”
“It’s working well and the kids couldn’t be happier,” a source recently told the magazine. “So Liev and Naomi are just hoping that it doesn’t begin to affect their relationships.” Since the Hollywood couple’s 2016 separation after 11 years of dating, Liev, 51, has started dating much-younger pageant queen, Taylor Neisen, and Naomi, 50, recently fell for her former co-star, Billy Crudup, also 50.
Now that the exes are dating other people, they’re especially aiming to keep their co-parenting relationship strictly professional. According to the report, Liev and Naomi are not sleeping in the same room and have their own separate living areas in their shared home. The source added that Liev’s new living arrangement has allowed him to spend “more time together as a family” with Naomi and the kids, which is great!
At the time of their 2016 breakup, Naomi and Liev released a joint statement to explain why they separated. “Over the past few months we’ve come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple. It is with great love, respect, and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship,” the statement read.
Naomi also updated her fans about the status of her relationship with Liev in a 2017 interview with Vogue Australia. “There are good days and bad days. Liev and I are on great terms and we’re trying to do our absolute best for the sake of the children, and we hope to keep moving forward in that way. He’s a fantastic dad, [and] a wonderful, wonderful man, and we still want the absolute best for each other,” she revealed. “So, that’s pretty much all I’ll say.” How sweet!
