Naomi and Liev 'ready to marry'

Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber are apparently ready to marry after nine years together.

The Hollywood stars have been together for nine years and have sons Sasha, seven, and five-year-old Sammy. Liev gave Naomi a ring back in 2009 and they have both said they don't want to rush walking down the aisle - although apparently that is set to change.

"Marriage was never a big deal to Naomi or Liev. But now their boys are asking why they aren't married, so they're gonna take the plunge," an insider told the American edition of OK!

"They would do anything for their kids, and they think it will be a fun family thing to plan together."

The couple are said to be considering a wedding later this year, probably around Christmas time. They haven't settled on any details at the moment, with suggestions when they do exchange vows it won't be a lavish affair.

"It will end up being a small intimate wedding, with just immediate family and friends. Their sons will be the only members of the wedding party," the source explained.

Naomi and Liev wouldn't be the first famous couple to wed for the sake of their children. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie tied the knot last month, marking ten years since they first met. They are both on record admitting they felt the pressure to wed because of their six children, who were desperate to see them declared man and wife. The tots even offered their services as wedding planners, with Angelina previously laughing they either wanted a Disney or paintball-themed day.

In the end the couple went for something more low-key, marrying in the chapel of their French estate.
