Naomi Watts Talks Raising BoysErin Blakeley
“I grew up a tomboy,” Watts dished to OK, “so I never had dolls or girly things. Despite the fact that they’re the opposite sex, I feel that I can relate.”
Aww…that’s sweet. And I totally get what she means here. I grew up a tomboy too, so all the bouncing off the walls and smashing things to bits that my son loves to do are totally in my wheelhouse. And now I am watching my daughter do all the same things.
So what does she like to do with her boys?
“Its been a lot of the zoo recently, explains Watts, who has been living in New York the last few months. “It’s been a lot of swimming and the zoo.”
It sounds like Watts is having a blast. But there is one thing she isn’t getting to do: put them in dresses. Still, it sounds like she has made her peace with that.
“The only thing I miss about not having girls is the pretty dresses, but I can do that with my niece.”
