Keira Knight­ley qui­etly wel­comes sec­ond child

The Peterborough Examiner - - ARTS & LIFE - AMY HANELINE

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.”
