Who Is James Righton? Keira Knightley's Husband Is a Rockstar with a Deceptively Awesome Name
Update: According to her rep, Keira Knightley is pregnant. Knightley’s rep confirmed her pregnancy with Elle UK who reports, ”We just got off the phone with her rep, who happily admitted the rumours were true, but also said that Keira will not be making any further comment.” Amid reports that Keira Knightley is pregnant with her first child, you may have found yourself asking some questions: How could she not have told me first?! When is she going to post an Instagram of her sonogram? Who is James Righton? Is she having the baby with Johnny Depp or Orlando Bloom? Hold up. Back up a minute. One of those questions was reasonable! Who is Keira Knightley's husband, James Righton? That's valid, right?
Knightley may not actually be pregnant — she hasn't confirmed the news yet herself, but Us Weekly has confirmation from "multiple sources" and Page Six has reported the supposed pregnancy as well — but she is, in fact, married. Knightley and Righton got married in May 2013. Knightley told Glamour in 2014 of their decision to get married, "When James proposed, I just thought, 'Well, never done that before'. It seemed like a fun thing to do." I LOVE her attitude!
If Knightley is pregnant, this is quite an exciting time for her. The actress was nominated for a Screen Actors' Guild award on Wednesday and a Golden Globe on Thursday, both for her supporting actress role in The Imitation Game. This lady could end up with a SAG award, a Golden Globe, and a baby in 2015. Exciting stuff!
Even though we should all keep in mind that Knightley may not actually be pregnant, there's nothing wrong with us getting to know James Righton. If they do have a kid someday, we'll want to know that he's a fit father. And if not, we should still make ourselves familiar with the dude that will be on her arm come awards season.
Like Knightley, Righton hails from England.
