Keira Knightley Talks About Her Pregnancy


– You can’t–like, you can’t
drink right now, obviously. Or you shouldn’t be,
if you are. – I know, no, stop right now.
Yeah, I can’t drink. I’m up for an Oscar
and I can’t drink at the Oscars! I actually–I had, like a–
you know, I went to the doctor. You get to have lots of doctors’
checkups when you’re pregnant. And she was like,
“Any questions?” I was like,
“Yes, when can I drink? “Please! I just want a margarita!”
Yeah. – I mean, I didn’t even think
about that. It’s one thing to–to be
pregnant and you can’t drink, but the Oscars is such a–
it’s a party atmosphere, everything about it.
– Yeah. – Whether you win or lose,
you want a drink. – It’s true, it’s true. My husband’s having
a great time. I’m eating for two and
he’s drinking for two. – Is that right?
– Yeah, it’s brilliant. – Yeah, I saw a picture of him
at the bar. It seems like–does he just
hang out at the bar? – Yeah, pretty much.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, there he is. – Yeah.
Yeah, yeah, with drink in hand. Yeah, no, he’s a–yeah. He’s–there’s a lot of
free champagne, so he thinks that because I’m not drinking the free
champagne, he has to. – Right.
– All of it, so– – ‘Cause it’s free, you have to. – Yeah, well,
you really do have to. – So this is the first time,
though, he’s been to all the awards
with you, right, or– – Yes.
– Did he come before? – No, no, he’s– Yeah, no,
I’m pulling pregnant lady “You have to come with me!
Support me!” So he’s doing that.
– Is he loving it? Or–what do you mean,
“you have to come with me”? They’re fun!
– [laughs] Yeah!
No, I think he’s loving it. – Yeah.
No, he’s not. – Well, you know.
I mean, you know. He gets to wear
lots of nice suits. He’s enjoying that, yeah. – He’s a handsome guy.
– He is. – I like the way he looks.
– Thank you. – So, ah–so being pregnant–
I know this from talking to so many people who have
been pregnant– There are so many people that
give you all kinds of advice… – Yeah. – And guess if it’s
a boy or a girl– Do you know
if it’s a boy or a girl? – No, I don’t know.
Do you want to guess? – Ah, boy.
– Really? – Mm-hmm.
– Okay, cool. I always guess “boy,” just ’cause I have a 50-50 shot.
[laughter] – You’re quite safe.
– Right. – You know, yeah. – But I think it is a boy.
– Okay, great. – You know why?
Because you’re carrying just–like– – Do you know yesterday
somebody said it was a girl because I’m carrying out
that way, and now you’re saying it’s a boy ’cause I’m carrying
out this way, so– – I don’t think that way at all.
– Really? – No, I think you’re straight
out–I think it’s a boy. – I don’t know, it’s just
definitely there, isn’t it? But, yeah, I mean–apart from– Somebody said to me the other
day that the problem with boys is that when you’re changing–
sorry, this is horrible– but when you’re changing
their nappies, you can get, like,
the wee in your face? ‘Cause they do–
yeah, you see, I’ve got a lot of people
nodding at me, which– – Let me–
– I never knew that before! – Let me translate.
– It sounds terrifying! – We’re in America,
let me translate. – Oh.
– She– [laughter]
– Sorry, sorry! – “Nappy” is a diaper.
– Oh, “diaper.” – And “wee” is pee.
– Yeah. [laughter]
– So– – I forget we speak different
languages. – Yeah, yes.
– I know, I’m sorry. – I understood it,
because I speak both languages. But, um–
[laughter] – That’s very good.
– English and American. – Yeah.
– So, yes. They will sometimes wee
in your face. – Wee in the face.
– Yeah, that doesn’t seem fun. – No, not really, no.
– No. And ’cause you only have two
hands, you can’t, like, – No, and apparently they roll
as well, so you have to, like,
try and stop them as you’re trying to grab
something else in order to stop them peeing
in your face. So that sounds quite
interesting. – Yeah.
– I don’t know what I’m going to do about that. – Well…
– I’ll keep you posted. – All right, please do! ‘Cause that’s–
[laughter] I want to hear about that a lot. – Sure, yeah. – And then someone asked you if
there was a birth plan? – Oh, there’s a whole
birthing plan. Sorry, but what is the plan?
Apart from to get it out? I’m just saying–
I mean, there isn’t an option to kind of keep it in, is there?
– No. – So I’m assuming my plan is
to get it out, but apparently there’s more to
the plan than that. – Yes.
– I don’t know what that is. – You should plan something.
– Okay. – I don’t know when you’re due.
– Still, my plan is to get it out. It will come out.
That’s the plan. – You don’t have to plan that.
That’ll happen. – Really, that’ll happen?
Okay. – There’s no need to–
– Well, good, then I don’t need a birth plan,
do I? That was it.
– All right. [laughter] – Well, it’s true, like,
back in the day, people would be in the fields
and have a child and– – Yeah, just drop it out,
keep working. – Keep working.
– Pick it up. – Yeah.
– Yeah, that’s my plan. – So you can be on set,
drop it out– – I’ll find a field.
– Keep doing. – Yeah, sure. – Your version of the field.
– Exactly. – You’ll be on set.
– Yeah. In front of cameras!
That’d be awful, wouldn’t it? – No, it would be great!
– No, yeah, wonderful for television,
but not so good for me. – Can you imagine if we caught
that on– Are you any time–are you close?
– Right now? – Because that would be great.
– Right now? I mean, if you got the strippers
back in, I think I could probably,
you know, just go. – Really?
– No, sorry. – ‘Cause we’re in sweeps.
That would be great for us. – That would–okay.
[laughter] – All right, I got you something
for the nursery. – Okay.
– Bring it out, please? (audience) Aw! – Oh, wow, wow.
– All right. – What do–what it–
– All right. It’s–first of all, you’re confused,
like you don’t even– This is how you change them,
okay? You don’t even know that. – Okay–oh!
This is good, so it can’t roll off. – These are their nappies,
right here. – Okay, great. – But you can start drinking
once you have it… – Oh!
– So there’s a bar… – Awesome!
[cheers and applause] [cheers and applause]
– Okay? – Yeah. – And–
– Now we’re talking. – You put that on– ‘Cause, ’cause they’ll pee!
See? – This great, no!
This is great. You need to sell these to every
new mother. – I know, I know. – This is a great idea. – And–see, he’s down there– – Yeah, and like–and with the–
– And you just put that on– [talking over each other]
