Naomi Watts' Baby Shower: A Relaxing Affair

Posted Monday July 23, 2007 7:24 PM GMT

While most of the attention this past Saturday was given to the arrival of David Beckham at the Galaxy/Chelsea soccer match, Naomi Watts was celebrating a baby shower with her close friends across town in Los Angeles.

Watts, who is currently unmarried, lives with her longtime boyfriend, Liev Schreiber. The happy couple hosted the shower at their home for approximately 15 guests, with some of the most notable including Kate Hudson and actress Carla Gugino.

Due to the fact that Watts is months along in her pregnancy, relaxing at home with the people she cares about was an easy decision over attending the arrival of David Beckham. Describing her pregnancy to PEOPLE in May, Watts, 38, said she was "just being relaxed and moving at a much slower pace and enjoying it. I'm just really happy to be pregnant."

Being able to enjoy life at a slower pace due to the pregnancy is a luxury that Watts can’t afford becoming too accustomed to. The "21 Grams" actress is slated to come out with two new movies over the next year, in which she plays opposite leads to Clive Owen ( International) and Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises).
