Seven-time ELLE cover star Keira Knightley has confirmed her pregnancy to ELLE.
We just got off the phone with her rep, who happily admitted the rumours were true, but also said that Keira will not be making any further comment. So we won't be seeing pics of the scan posted on Instagram then.
We're guessing the baby will be coming late March/April time.
When we interviewed Keira, 29, last summer, she told us she wasn't planning children with husband James Righton just then (hah!) but babies were clearly on the brain. When we talked about her fantasy film script, she said it would be about 'The horrendous issue of trying to have a baby when you can’t.
'I’ve seen friends who’ve been through this, it seems like one of the most dramatic things that can happen to half of the population – and actually, the other half as well because, my god, the unbelievable toll it takes on male partners – and there are no good films about it.'
Even then, she had pretty clear ideas of what would and wouldn't go for a daughter when she has one. Like acting, for instance:
'Oh, 100%, I’d absolutely tell her not to,' she said. "I would 150 million trillion per cent be totally discouraging. Teenage years should be done privately. You should be going out and getting unbelievably drunk, getting into ridiculous situations, making mistakes. That’s what that time of life is about and we should do that privately.
'Saying that, I don’t regret it – I wouldn’t do my life any differently, but having lived through it… There was a very long time when [interviewers] were all: "Well you’re a sh*t actress and you’re anorexic and people hate you" which, for a teenager is a very strange thing.'
