    Keira Knightley has given birth to her first child.

    It’s being reported that the 30-year-old actress and her Klaxons rocker husband James Righton have welcomed their baby in London, but no other details are being given yet.

    The Imitation Game star was relaxed about becoming a mother in the run-up. Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres about her birthing plan, she joked: ‘There isn’t an option to sort of keep it in, is there? 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.’

    Also, proving that she is very much a woman after our own hearts, she joked it was the prospect of being able to enjoy a margarita again that was keeping her going.

    ‘When can I drink? Please?’ she quipped to the talk-show host. ‘I just want a margarita!’

    She went on to say that her husband seemed to have no problems helping her out on the drinking front during the awards party season. ‘There’s a lot of free champagne [at events], so he thinks because I’m not drinking, he has two. I’m eating for two and he’s drinking for two.’

    Congratulations to Keira, James and their new arrival.
