Keira Knightley Reveals the Name of Her Baby Girl
In her first interview since giving birth to her daughter with husband James Righton, the 30-year-old actress tells Elle magazine – for which she takes over the September cover – they decided to name their now three-month-old Edie!
More than that, however, Knightley also opens up about how she views herself and her body in a whole new light now that she’s taken on motherhood.
“The love thing is astonishing. It’s a very primal, primal love. That’s quite extraordinary,” she explains. “And the ability to have no sleep and continue going. It’s not pleasant — I never thought that I could actually do it for the amount of time that I’ve done it.”
The actress continues, “Also, I have to say, as a woman, you hate certain parts of your body. You go through those periods where you look in the mirror and you think, Oh, if only I had different legs or arms or whatever. You go through pregnancy and labor and then feeding the kid and you go, Wow, my body is totally amazing, and I’m never going to not like it again, because it did this, and this is fucking extraordinary.”
