British actress Keira Knightley is expecting her first child with husband James Righton, the co-vocalist and keyboardist for London-based band Klaxons. Keira tied the knot with James last year and her pregnancy rumours have been doing the rounds for sometime.
Reportedly, the 29-year-old actress is more than three months
pregnant. A glowing Knightley fuelled rumours of a pregnancy as she
stayed away from alcohol at a recent event. The star appeared at
her husband's side in an embroidered and billowy Rocha dress, very
different from her usual fitted style.
Pregnancy rumours first emerged in November when Star
magazine reported that she and Righton were expecting and it was a
happy surprise for the couple. A source said, "Keira and her
stylist have been putting together looks that hide her growing
Knightley's role as codebreaker Joan Clarke opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in wartime
drama 'The Imitation Game' has earned her
a nomination for the prestigious Screen Actors Guild Awards which
is seen as an indication for the Oscar nod. Keira is also garnering
Oscar buzz for her performance in The Imitation Game.
At the January 25th SAG Awards, Keira is competing against
Streep ("Into the Woods"), Naomi Watts ("St. Vincent"), Emma Stone
("Birdman") and Patricia Arquette ("Boyhood") for outstanding
performance by a female actor in a supporting role.
Earlier, Keira had spoken about having kids and said that she will not give up acting if she becomes a mother. Would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at," Keira told Vogue magazine in 2013.
