Keira Knightley's husband is drinking for two while she's pregnant

While actress Keira might be eating for two during her pregnancy, her husband is making up for her not drinking alcohol...

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actress is enjoying eating more while expecting her first child, and joked her Klaxons rocker husband James Righton has taken it upon himself to drink her share of any alcohol they are offered.

Speaking about how she's using her pregnancy as an excuse to make her husband attend awards season parties with her, she said: "I'm telling him, 'You have to come with me, support me!

"There's a lot of free champagne at events, so he thinks because I'm not drinking, he has two. I'm eating for two and he's drinking for two."

The 29-year-old star - who tied the knot with James in an intimate ceremony in France in 2013 - has confessed that while she may want to control everything about her pregnancy, she's learnt that not everything can go to plan.

She told 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show': "There's a whole birthing plan in place, but what is the plan, apart from to get it out? My plan is to get it out."

Keira also admitted she's worried about carrying out tasks such as changing nappies once her baby arrives.

She added: "Somebody said to me the other day, that the problem with boys is, when you're changing their nappies, you can get the wee in your face.

"I never knew that before so it was terrifying. Apparently they roll as well, so you have to like try to stop them while you're trying to grab something else in order to stop them peeing in your face. That sounds quite interesting."
