“Naomi’s been teaching him ‘Kiss the Baby,’ which basically involves him going up to kiss the bump,” he told AccessHollywood.com.
“I don’t think he knows yet that there’s something lurking in there that’s about to seize the spotlight from him forever.”
Earlier this year, Watts, whose films include King Kong, 21 Grams and Eastern Promises, said of her older son: “He’s turning pages in the book. He’s crawling and standing up. He can wave. I read Goodnight Moon to him every night.”
