Liv little 'un
UK New!, July 2004
Liv Tyler tells us of her joy as she becomes the latest Hollywood star to announce that she's pregnant
Blimey. The celebrity baby boom shows no signs of letting up! No sooner have Gwyneth, Ulrika and Courteney popped their sprogs, than a whole new load of celebs are queuing up to announce they're expecting. This time it's the turn of Lord Of The Rings star Liv Tyler, 27, who announced last week that she is pregnant with her first child.
Liv, who plays elf princess Arwen in the trilogy, is married to Leeds-born rocker Royston Langdon, 32. And as our pictures show, proud Roy is looking forward to being a dad. The Spacehog singer was snapped in New York patting his missus' tiny bump protectively after the pair announced their news.
Last week Liv said, "Roy and I are both overjoyed and look forward to the arrival of our child." A pal also revealed, "Liv's over the moon and absolutely glowing. They've wanted a baby for a while."
Liv and Roy got hitched in Barbados in March 2004 after being engaged for two years, and togethere for five. But the actress' choice of a musician husband was no surprise - her dad is Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler, and her mum, Bebe Buell, was a model turned singer. However, Liv actually grew up thinking 70s rock star Todd Rundgren was her dad - until she noticed the resemblance between her and Steve's daughter, Mia.
Fortunately, there'll be no such confusion for Liv's little 'un. The nipper is due this winter, and Liv, who recently finished filming Lonesome Jim with Ben Affleck's brother, Casey, has no work plans in the near future.
