Naomi Watts Shares Sasha's Favorite Words

02/12/2009 at 06:00 PM ET

The ravenous appetite of a pregnant woman is nothing compared to the ravenous appetite of a breastfeeding mom.  It’s a phenomenon Naomi Watts knows all too well, having recently given birth to her second son, 8 ½-week-old Samuel ‘Sammy’ Kai. “I eat more now than I did when I was pregnant,” the 40-year-old actress tells OK! “With breastfeeding, you have to eat…and you’re always hungry.”

What’s more, the calorie burn of nursing appears to be largely responsible for Naomi’s amazing return to pre-pregnancy size. She reveals,

“I haven’t even done much exercise yet, but I intend to.”

Naomi adds that her first child, 18½-month-old Alexander ‘Sasha’ Pete, “is just starting to talk now.” While he’s not speaking in full sentences just yet, Sasha has a lot of words. “Other than ‘mom’ and ‘dad,’ ‘turtle’ is his favorite one,” Naomi shares.

Sasha and Sammy are Naomi’s children with fiancé Liev Schreiber. Her new movie The International opens Friday.
