Happy 44th birthday, Liev Schreiber!

The actor and longtime love Naomi Watts have two sons together: Sasha, 4, and Samuel, 2.

"There's just no questioning what you will do for your child," Schreiber told Hamptons Magazine. "You're not sure of that until your child is born and looking you in the eye and needing something, and then it just sort of happens. I had no idea that it would be so easy but it's just something you take for granted that you have the ability to do. I think it came naturally to me."

When asked by Time Out New York what he plans to give Sasha and Samuel for reading material, the actor quipped: "Definitely going to be Shakespeare. You know, I have a deep, deep affinity for Dr. Seuss. Horton Hears a Who is about as good as it comes in terms of verse poetry. It's basically some of the same meter as Shakespeare."
