Hello, red carpet bump watch! Keira Knightley, who just recently received both Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Imitation Game, is about to join the millennial mom club: The 29-year-old actress is pregnant!
Knightley is married to musician James Righton, whom she wed in France in May, 2013—but don't expect her to settle down into a traditional role any time soon. As she told Vogue magazine in a now oft-quoted 2012 interview, "...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."
Like another fashionable young mom-to-be, Blake Lively, we expect some chic maternity fashion choices from Knightley—both on the red carpet and off. And while the actress and her hubby didn't share the baby news themselves, we're hoping for a cute gender reveal announcement in the months to come!
Congratualtions to the newly expecting couple!
