The 34-year-old actress debuted her baby bump in Paris at a Chanel party on Thursday, May 2. Knightley glowed in a white and tan off-the-shoulder dress as she made her way into the get-together hand in hand with Righton.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star and the English musician, who wed in 2013, are parents of 4-year-old daughter Edie.
Back in October 2018, Knightley candidly detailed her first labor experience in an open letter published in Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (And Other Lies).
“My vagina split,” she admitted. “I remember the s—t, the vomit, the blood, the stitches. I remember my battleground.”
In the same piece, Knightley slammed Duchess Kate for perpetuating an unrealistic standard for new moms by making a public appearance just hours after giving birth to Prince Louis in April 2018.
“We stand and watch the TV screen. [Kate] was out of hospital seven hours later with her face made up and high heels on,” the Love Actually actress wrote. “The face the world wants to see. … Look beautiful. Look stylish, don’t show your battleground, Kate.”
“Seven hours after your fight with life and death, seven hours after your body breaks open, and bloody, screaming life comes out. Don’t show. Don’t tell,” she continued. “Stand there with your girl and be shot by a pack of male photographers.”
A palace source told Us Weekly at the time that the Duchess of Cambridge was “annoyed” by Knightley’s essay.
“Keira is obviously entitled to her own opinion, but it was very much based on her own experiences and not of Kate’s. Not every mother feels the same way,” the source explained. “Keira’s comments were simply for attention and they weren’t justified.”
The source added: “She wouldn’t have done the photo call a second and third time if she was uncomfortable.”
Knightley later claimed her words were “misrepresented.”
