New mum Keira Knightley graced the cover of ELLE US's September issue – four covers in fact – and in their cover story, she revealed how pregnancy has made her love her body more.

"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,'" said Keira. "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 fucking extraordinary."

Let's not miss out the part where she revealed that the baby's name is Edie! What a pretty name. Keira turned 30 four months ago and while most of us would jump at the opportunity to party, Keira had to sit it out because she was heavily pregnant with Edie.

"I couldn't drink – what is the point of having a 30th birthday if I couldn't get phenomenally drunk? But my husband took over, arranged a lovely lunch at one of my favourite restaurants, 20 of us, and they were all being so sweet," she said. "Then they came back to our house – they'd covered it in balloons that said my name and happy birthday and all that – and they got completely obliterated."

"They were there until two or three in the morning, absolutely drunk, and I was there eight months pregnant, completely sober. So it was lovely, but it wasn't what I'd imagined a 30th birthday was going to be," she added.
