Naomi Watts’ ex Liev Schreiber has congratulated the actress following her wedding to long-term boyfriend Billy Crudup.
The King Kong star posted a photo to her Instagram on Friday of herself and her new husband posing on the steps of what looked to be a Manhattan courthouse shortly after tying the knot.
Liev, who Naomi previously dated for 11 years, extended his wishes to the newlyweds by commenting: ‘Congratulations!!! Gorgeous!!!’.
Naomi married her long-term boyfriend Billy in a $7,400 white Oscar de la Renta Sweetheart Water Lilly Guipure dress. The famously secretive couple previously sparked marriage rumors after they were spotted in wedding attire in photos obtained by PageSix on Friday.

The Mulholland Drive star wore her cropped blonde hair curled and parted to the side, and accessorized her look with open-toed pumps, a diamond necklace and a gold wedding band.
New York-born Billy meanwhile sported a navy blue suit, and he looked dashing with his clean-shaven visage and his shaggy salt-and-pepper hair swept back dramatically.
Naomi also shared a close-up photo of herself posing with her white bouquet, along with a caption that revealed she’d purchased her flowers from a local deli.
After the ceremony, Naomi shared a photo of the newlyweds celebrating with actor Mark Ruffalo and his wife Sunrise Coigney.
Also pictured was Josh Hamilton – who was coincidentally celebrating his birthday – and his wife Lily Thorne.

Naomi first sparked rumors that she and Billy had gotten engaged earlier this year, when she debuted an enormous diamond with a tasteful marquise cut, along with a diamond-encrusted band.
The star however refused to confirm the engagement chatter, even after American Today show host Hoda Kotb directly referenced it during a late April appearance on the morning talk show.
Toward the end of Naomi’s segment, Hoda joked that he ‘eye was hurting’ from the ‘big glint coming from some ring over here.’
‘It just struck me, but it’s beautiful,’ she added.
Lest there be any doubt about her implied question, Hoda’s co-host Savannah Guthrie added: ‘Hoda is asking if you’re engaged.’
But Naomi simply replied, ‘So, the brain fog…’

Savannah went on to compliment the ring’s design, but Naomi avoided saying more about her ring, while also not outright denying that she had gotten engaged to Billy.
The King Kong star appeared to have worn the ring at least as early as March, and she was spotted displaying the sparkler on the red carpet at the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Beverly Hills.
Naomi and Billy met on the set of her 2017 Netflix series Gypsy, in which she starred as a therapist who uses an alias to develop close (and unethical) relationships with people intimately connected to her patients, while Crudup played her husband.
The costars began a relationship later in 2017, a year after Naomi had split from her partner of 11 years, actor Liev.
The friendly exes share two children: Kai, 14, and Sasha, 15.
Since they began dating, Naomi and Billy have kept their public appearances to a minimum and have largely avoided commenting on their relationship, though Naomi has occasionally shared sweet photos of herself with her boyfriend on social media.

During a past interview with PorterEdit in 2019, The Impossible actress opened up about their blended families and co-parenting together. ‘We’re doing things very differently.’
‘I’m pretty proud of us, corny as that may sound. We’ve made it our absolute priority to be good and kind to each other and we’re absolutely committed to that.’
Liev announced earlier this year that he’s expecting his first child with model girlfriend Taylor Neisen.
Billy was long infamous for the terrible timing when he ended his multi-year relationship with Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker.
He separated from the actress, who he began dating in 1996, in November of 2003, when she was seven months pregnant with their son.
He subsequent began a relationship with Claire Danes that ended in 2006.
