Keira Knightley quietly welcomes second child
Keira Knightley is in the newborn fog right now.
The actress, who never officially announced her pregnancy, was spotted earlier in the year rocking a growing baby bump.
But, it seems that baby No. 2 has arrived, and she talked about it during an interview with Louise Minchin on BBC Breakfast posted to bbc.com Friday.
The “Pride and Prejudice” star was on to talk politics and her role in a new film “Official Secrets” when she finally admitted she was a little exhausted with a newborn at home.
“I can’t remember what your question was. You can tell I have a 6-week-old baby, haven’t you? I’m talking but I have no idea where I’m going,” Knightley says.
British journalist Minchin congratulates her before taking the opportunity to talk motherhood. While Knightley is very private about her kids and isn’t on social media, she is refreshingly honest when it comes to being a mom, which is evident in the interview.
“Can I just say this is about the third time since I’ve given birth that my hair has been brushed?” she jokes. “And I didn’t brush it,” she adds, explaining that her hairdresser did all the work alongside a team of people that got her out of her pajamas and “led” her there.
She tells Minchin that she has six hours to work with breaks for pumping breast milk before she has to get back home for a feeding.
“There is a bit of extra milk, which I’d love not to use because it’s in the freezer and you know that can be tricky, but it is there,” she says.
Michin comments that people don’t imagine that Hollywood stars have to deal with the stuff normal people do.
“What, pumping?” Knightley responds. “You definitely have to deal with pumping. Everyone has to deal with pumping, if you’re doing that and if it’s working and if you want to do that and you can do that, then yes we’re pumping. Pumping. So much pumping.”
