The very lovely Keira Knightley has some very exciting news to share. 

The 29-year-old actress and her husband James Righton, a member of the London-based band Klaxons, are expecting their first child together.

Keira, who received a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for her role in The Imitation Game, sparked pregnancy rumours earlier in the week when, despite the event’s sponsors, she steered completely clear of alcohol while attending the Moet Independent British Spirit Awards.

The New York Post confirmed the news, citing multiple sources close to the couple.

It will be the first child Keira and James, who wed in a quiet ceremony in the south of France in May last year.

While the star has always talked openly about her desire to become a mother, she doesn’t plan on giving up her acting career after the birth.

Speaking to Vogue in 2013, the star revealed “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.”

We know you will join us in sending our congratulations to Keira and James at this very exciting time.

  • My advice would be to trust your mothers’ instinct.


  • How cool. My advise would be what ever your work aspirations after a baby, hope for it but don’t expect/rely on it. I didn’t expect I’d really want to stay at home as much as I have, so returning to anything has been hard.


  • Takes as many photos as you can


  • Congratulations and good luck to her.


  • congratulations to Keira and James :)


  • I didn’t know she was 29 :D


  • How exciting. My advise is to do what feels comfortable for you and take all advise you are given on board but don’t feel you need to take it all


  • So happy for her and her hubby.


  • Congrats to them both. My advice is to go with your own gut feeling, don’t be ashamed to ask any questions no matter how trivial.


  • Best advice my mother gave me- listen to everyone and only follow the advice that feels right and suits you and your family. Also always trust your own intuition cause no one ever knows your child like you do as their mother


  • Congrates just sit back and relax and enjoy before the real fun starts


  • Congratulations. How exciting to them both. My advice to Keira would be to not take on any movies for at least 6 months after baby is born and to take the time to just spend with her new family.


  • My one piece of advice for new mums is always trust your instinct, and follow through with it.


  • Congratulations to the happy couple


  • Be there for each other and understand that it’s a trying time for both of you. A baby complies to everything in your life, if you can count on each other, then it will be easier. Not easy, just easier.
