In case you missed it, Keira Knightley is officially a mom of two as of Autumn 2019. The actress, who's been married to James Righton — a former member of the band the Klaxons — since 2013, clearly values her privacy when it comes to sharing photos of her children; she doesn't have an active Instagram account and tends to steer clear of the paparazzi. Nevertheless, the 34-year-old actress has made it clear that though motherhood is difficult, she's certainly enjoying it.

Here's what we know about her two daughters.

Edie Knightley Righton

Edie Knightley Righton was born on May 25, 2015. While Keira has managed to keep Edie out of the spotlight, she's opened up about her parenting journey in the past.

"I don't think we give women enough credit for the physical and emotional marathon they go through when becoming a mother. I come from a place of amazing privilege. I have an incredible support system; I've been unbelievably lucky in my career; I can afford good childcare, and yet I still find it really f*cking difficult," she said in a January 2019 interview before adding that just because she finds parenthood challenging "doesn't mean I don't love my kid."

Keira gave birth to her second daughter, Delilah, in Sept. 2019. Although we don't know the exact date, she's been candid about how hectic the newborn stage can be, especially where feeding is concerned. "We're going to be apart for six hours in total, so I pumped three feeds' worth," she told The Telegraph. "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."
