KEIRA KNIGHTLEY OPENS UP ABOUT HOW BABY DAUGHTER IS CHANGING HER LIFE

Keira Knightley is opening up for the first time about the baby she welcomed with husband James Righton. The 34-year-old shared the name they gave her for the first time: Delilah.

Baby Delilah joins their 4-year-old daughter Edie. While Knightley is enjoying a six-month maternity leave she tells The Telegraph, she makes occasional exceptions. Earlier this month, she graced the premiere of her latest film, Official Secrets, which took a lot of planning and pumping.

"Three whole feeds," she says of how much she pumped prior to their brief separation. "We're going to be apart for six hours in total, so I pumped three feeds' worth. If I don't do it my boobs will explode. I mean, quite literally. It's going everywhere. So, you know, that's not happening. The pump is with me. It's fine."

Life has changed in general, she tells The Telegraph. Now, she and Righton are weighing their involvement in the global environmental movement Extinction Rebellion.

"We keep having this discussion where we're saying to each other, 'Should we get arrested?'" Knightley says of herself and Righton. "And I'm like, 'We can't, we've got a baby, she's permanently attached to my boob. So how's it going to work?'"

She recently told ET that being a working mom to a young baby has unexpected perks. "The the weird thing with acting is that sleep deprivation basically makes your emotions very close to the surface. It's much easier to cry," she said. "You feel like crying all the time, so I can turn that on like that, so this is great. Thanks kid."
