Keira Knightley: Why the Thought of Having a Boy Is ‘Terrifying’
“Somebody said to me the other day, the problem with boys is — sorry, this is horrible — but when you’re changing their nappies, you can get the wee in your face … I never knew that before, so it was terrifying,” the pregnant Oscar nominee says in an appearance Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“That doesn’t seem fun,” Ellen DeGeneres replies.
“No,” says the actress, 29. “And apparently they roll as well, so you have to try to stop them while you’re trying to grab something else in order to stop them peeing in your face. So that sounds quite interesting.”

The star of The Imitation Game hasn’t learned the sex of the baby. (Ellen guesses boy, but only “because I have a 50/50 shot.”) But one thing’s for sure: She doesn’t have an overly complicated birth plan.
“Sorry, but what is the plan apart from to get it out?” she says. “There isn’t an option to 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.”
“My husband’s having a great time. I’m eating for two and he’s drinking for two,” says Knightley. “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.”
