Three months after delivering a daughter, Keira Knightley has revealed her baby girl’s name: Edie.
The Imitation Game actress, 30, who had initially kept mum about motherhood following the baby’s birth in May, opened up to Elle for its 30th anniversary issue about the wonder of the mother-baby bond.
“The love thing is astonishing,” she tells the magazine. “It’s a very primal, primal love. That’s quite extraordinary.”
She also reveals that giving birth had an unexpected bonus: It finally allowed her a self-confidence boost.
“I have to say, as a woman, you hate certain parts of your body. You go through those periods where you look in the mirror and you think, ‘Oh, if only I had different legs or arms or whatever.’ You go through pregnancy and labor and then feeding the kid and you go, ‘Wow, my body is totally amazing, and I’m never going to not like it again, because it did this, and this is f—ing extraordinary.’ ”
