30-year-old British actress Keira Knightley revealed her three-month-old daughter’s name is Edie. For many months, the Pirates of the Caribbean actress has been keeping silent not just about the baby’s name, but also about pertinent details of her pregnancy. All that the public knew was that in May, she gave birth.
In an interview with Elle Magazine for September’s cover story, Knightley disclosed it is motherhood, which enhanced her confidence.
“Some people go wild and have a great time and throw caution to the wind, and I was the complete opposite. I was very shy. It took me a lot of years to try and stop pleasing a lot of people and allow myself to have fun,” she quipped.
‘My Body Is Totally Amazing’
Becoming pregnant only made her love her body even more. In her 20s, Knightley had struggles.
“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 f***king extraordinary.”
When asked about her life as a wife and mother, the stunning actress’ answer was humbling.
“The love thing is astonishing. It’s a very primal, primal love. That’s quite extraordinary. 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.”
