Keira Knightley gives birth to first child with husband James Righton

Two years after marrying in a romantic ceremony in France, Keira Knightley and her husband James Righton are overjoyed to have started a family. The Pirates of the Caribbean beauty has given birth to the couple's first child, with a source confirming the news to American publication Us Weekly.

Keira Knightley and James Righton married in 2013

The couple were introduced by their mutual friend Alexa Chung, and Keira's good friend Sienna Miller, who was one of only 11 guests invited to their wedding in 2013, was one of the first to publicly congratulate the pair on their pregnancy news.

"We've spoken a lot and I know she will be amazing," Sienna told the New York Post in December. "She doesn't need any advice. She will be perfect."

Keira and James spent the first few months of this year in America, where Keira was the toast of Hollywood for her film The Imitation Game. She received an Oscar nomination for her role as codebreaker Joan Clarke opposite Benedict Cumberbatch.

Being pregnant meant that the 30-year-old didn't have quite as much fun as she would have liked. Keira complained in a TV interview with Ellen DeGeneres about not being able to take advantage of all the hospitality at the awards parties.

"I can't drink. I'm up for an Oscar and I can't drink at the Oscars," she lamented.

"I went to the doctor - you have to get lots of doctor check ups when you're pregnant - and she asked if I had any questions. And I said 'Yes! When can I drink!? Please! I just want a margarita'."

Keira joked though that luckily 31-year-old James had been taking full advantage instead.

"My husband's having a great time. I'm eating for two and he's drinking for two," she said. "There's a lot of free champagne so he thinks because I'm not drinking the free champagne he has to. So all of it."
