Keira Knightley is pregnant, her spokesperson has confirmed today. This will be the first child for the actress and her husband James Righton, who she married in France in May 2013.
No due date has been announced, although speculation suggests that the baby will be arriving in spring 2015.
It has a happy week for Keira, who is also celebrating a Golden Globe nomination for her role in The Imitation Game.
Another day, another nomination. Today the shortlist was released for the Golden Globe Awards, and Keira has yet again been nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Imitation Game, which received 5 nominations in total, including Best Motion Picture (Drama), Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) (Benedict Cumberbatch), Best Screenplay (Motion Picture) and Best Original Score (Motion Picture). Keira released a short statement after hearing about her nomination:
I felt so lucky to have portrayed Joan Clarke, such an extraordinary woman who defied convention and was part of a moment in history.
Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this honour and for recognising our film.
