British actress Keria Knightley has spoken openly about her pregnancy on the Ellen show, revealing that while she may by a Hollywood A-lister she has many of the same fears and expectations as the rest of us.
Keria Knightley was nominated for the award for Best Actress at the Oscars and spoke to Ellen about how she didn’t have a birthing plan set out and appeared to have no desire to put a detailed plan together anytime soon.
Speaking to Ellen she actually laughed about the idea of a birthing plan and made a joke about the “whole birthing plan concept”.
“Sorry, but what is the plan apart from to get it out?” She said.
Keria Knightley continued joking about the birth saying: “There isn’t an option to sort of keep it in, is there?”
This is the first pregnancy for 29 year old Keria Knightley who is expecting her child with husband James Righton, continued.
Keria Knightley added: “So, I’m assuming my plan is to get it out. But apparently there’s more to the plan than that. I don’t know what that is. Still, my plan is to get it out. It will come out.”
To which Ellen responded with reminding Keira that “back in the day, people would be in the field and have a child.”
Keira responsed: “Yeah, just drop it out and keep working. Pick it up…yeah, that’s my plan,” she joked.
While Keria Knightley looked radiant on the show she didn’t hide the fact that she is keen for this period of pregnancy to be over, especially because she is keen to be able to enjoy an alcoholic drink again!
The actress who was nominated for an Oscar award admitted that it was difficult to enjoy the event without being able to even have a glass of champagne to celebrate.
“I can’t drink. I’m up for an Oscar and I can’t drink at the Oscars,” she said.
“I went to the doctor – you have to get lots of doctor check ups when your pregnant – and she asked if I had any questions. And I said “Yes! When can I drink!? Please! I just want a margarita”.
It turns out though that while Keria Knightley is not able to enjoy a drink her husband is making the most of the situation.
“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.”
Keria Knightley proves that it is possible to be a celebrity but to come across just like a regular person!
