After taking a short break from acting to spend time raising her sons, Alexander (Sasha), 3, and Samuel Kai, 22 months, Naomi Watts has returned to work and is learning how to balance life as a mom and movie star. “You have to live in the moment with your children,” Naomi tells Us magazine.
The 42-year-old admits that her two boys are a handful. “Sasha is a really great talker now,” she says, “and Kai is in that scary, dangerous mode where he climbs up on everything.” Sounds exhausting!
“Every single day, I second-guess myself as a mother,” Naomi told Blackbook magazine in May. “I chose to be a mom. It’s something I’ve always wanted, but I feel torn between two worlds. I am not reaching the same depths and heights that I used to reach in movies because I’m a parent of two small children who desperately need me. It’s frustrating because I feel like I’m failing a bit on both ends.”
Well Naomi, we don’t think you’re failing at all. Your adorable sons are lucky to have you as their mommy!
