Although the rumours have been circulating for weeks, it was only today that a rep for Keira Knightley confirmed she is expecting her first child with husband, James Righton.
The notoriously private couple – who married in May 2013 after two years of dating – have been keeping quiet on the pregnancy rumours until today. A rep confirmed that Keira is in fact pregnant but won’t be making any further comment.
The reason that everyone was so suspicious about Keira’s potential baby bump was because of her noticeably shifted style. The stylish actress has been seen out and about more recently in distinctly looser-fitted getups. Her slim figure is usually kitted out in tight dresses but for her last few events, she has opted for chiffon dresses which don’t give too much away.
Keeping it super casual while out and about in New York just a few weeks ago, Keira looked effortlessly cool in a pair of baggy dungarees – but it was this pic that sent the rumour mill into overdrive.
She was on the Jonathon Ross show recently in a baggy chiffon dress and although she displayed no obious signs of a baby bump, the flowing gown certainly differed from many of her tighter-fitting red carpet looks we have seen in the past, like this Chanel dress from March.
She also wore a loose-fitted white floral dress by Holly Fulton during her New York trip and the winning pink Dolce number also had us convinced. These (very early days) maternity looks provide some serious style inspiration and we can’t wait to see what she will wear when her bump becomes a little more visible.
Keira joins the likes of Blake Lively and Kate Middleton in the seriously stylish mums-to-be group at the moment. We wonder if they have been swapping notes on how to totally rock their bumps.
Congratulations to Keira! We can’t wait to see your maternity looks in full.
