Naomi Watts Offers Advice And Support To Expecting Pal Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman is preparing to give birth for the first time – and luckily she has Naomi Watts to talk her through it. "Whenever you're pregnant, you always call on your pregnant friends and compare notes," the 39-year-old Naomi – who gave birth to son Alexander Pete last July – told PEOPLE Monday at a press conference to discuss her new role as the face of Angel, a fragrance by designer Thierry Mugler. "It's what happens in friendship."
So will Nicole, 40 – who's expecting her first child with hubby Keith Urban – be a good mom? “Of course!" said Watts. In fact, since the Oscar-winner has two adopted children, Isabella and Conner, with her ex-husband Tom Cruise, "She's already a great mum." For some reason people forget that she has two kids. I wonder why (typed with a laugh).
While little Alexander – whose dad is actor Liev Schreiber – didn't put in an appearance at the event, Naomi said he's growing up fast. "He's turning pages in the book," she said proudly. "He's crawling and standing up. He can wave. I read Goodnight Moon to him every night."
