Aren't Keira Knightley and James Righton the cutest couple? Keira gave birth to her first baby, a little girl, in May, but has only chosen to reveal her name three months later. And it's.....(drum roll please).....Edie! How adorable?

To celebrate Keira's 30th birthday, she's done an exclusive interview with US Elle and is their cover star for the September issue. As well as disclosing her daughter's name, Keira also talks about how difficult she's finding motherhood without being able to get much shut-eye: "It's not pleasant. I never thought that I could actually do it for the amount of time that I've done it. Also, I have to say, as a woman, you hate certain parts of your body. You go through these 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 labour 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**king extraordinary."

Well, we think Keira is looking amazing, even if she doesn't. She also talks of how grateful she is that she's changing a girl's nappies: "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."

At least Keira's doing the nappy changing herself and not hiring a nanny to do it. Bravo!
