Congratulations are in order for actress Keira Knightley!
Yes, congratulations for her SAG nomination for her work in The Imitation Game, but more importantly... she’s pregnant! The London native is reportedly expecting her first child with husband of one year, James Righton.
According to Us Weekly, multiple sources have confirmed the happy news that Knightley, 29, is a few months along in her pregnancy.
Reports surfaced that Knightley was seen avoiding alcoholic beverages at the Moet British Independent Spirit Awards last Sunday. Also, she wore a more loose-fitting dress, an unusual choice for the actress and fashion icon who often shows some skin and dons tighter ensembles.
Neither Knightley nor Righton have confirmed the news. Although they are usually out of the public eye, we're hoping to see some bump pictures to verify reports.
Knightley presumably has no plans to quit her acting career once becoming a mom. When she spoke to Vogue in 2013, the actress elaborated on her future as a working mother.
"Would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No." She continued, "On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at."
She and husband James Righton, singer with the Klaxons, were married in May 2013 in Provence, France. The bride wore a Chanel wedding dress she had worn previously – and has worn it one more time since!
There’s no doubt that this humble pair will make wonderfully loving parents. Congratulations to the happy couple!
