Actress Naomi Watts and her partner Liev Schreiber were spotted arriving at their SoHo, New York City apartment with their two sons Sasha, 5, and 4-year-old Kai after a visit to Billy’s Bakery on Thursday (December 13).
Unlike many famous celebs, the method the Watts-Schreiber’s prefer to get around the Big Apple – whenever they can – is by bicycle.
“My sons and I are biker boys,” the 45-year-old X-Men star reveals to PEOPLE. “It’s my favorite way to get around the city and the kids absolutely love it.”
“They have the best time and they would rather go on a bike than any other form of transportation,” he adds.
Liev — whose past professions include bike courier — hopes his two beautiful boys will soon be able to ride unassisted.
“They are not off training wheels yet,” he explains. “The problem is they are not riding their own bikes [and] would rather ride with me or with Naomi. So we have this great bike where the three of us can all sit on. It’s fun, but it’s time to get them on their own. I’m trying to get them to the park so they can practice.”
The doting daddy – who stars in the upcoming film The Butler as President Lyndon B. Johnson – is enjoying fatherhood and cherishes every minute of it.
“They are growing up too fast and it’s tough to leave them,” Liev admits. “When you are working as much as Naomi and I are working, there’s some guilt. I want to be present and experience all the milestones. Both of us are getting pulled so I don’t take time with them for granted. Every day with them is remarkable to me.”
We last spotted the proud papa and Kai as they cycled through the city earlier this week.
