Actor Jennifer Coolidge wrote, “Hooray!!! Just woke up to this !!!!!,” followed by lots of emojis including applause and champagne. “You two couldn’t look happier !!!XO.”

Watts, who starred in movies including “King Kong” and “Birdman,” has been “romantically linked” to Crudup since 2017, according to People. Both actors were in the Netflix thriller series “Gypsy.”

Watts has two sons with actor Liev Schreiber. Crudup has a son with actor Mary Louise Parker.

In April, Watts was asked whether she was engaged on the “Today” show and the actor avoided the question, saying “brain fog.”

Dressed in an oversized night shirt, Naomi Watts moved stealthily across the darkened suburban house where she was shooting her new movie, stepping toward a couch where a teenage actor playing her son lay asleep.
