Following her September split from partner of 11 years Live Schreiber, Naomi Watts has finally opened up for the first time  – and says the move from coupled up to single sister has hasn’t been an easy process.

‘Transitions are scary for anybody. I feel like change is always scary, but that’s only because transition for anyone is new and you wonder how things are going to go,’ admits the Aussie actress, who has two kids – Alexander, nine, and Samuel, seven – with Liev.

Thankful and grateful ❤️❤️

The couple split in late September, releasing a joint statement. ‘Over the past few months we’ve come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple,’ they revealed. ‘It is with great love, respect, and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship.’
