Reports: Keira Knightley gives birth to first child

Keira Knightley is reportedly a mum and, per usual, is keeping mum about it

Keira Knightley is reportedly a mum and, per usual, is keeping mum about it.

The private "Imitation Game" actress and husband James Righton have welcomed their first child, according to several reports out Tuesday that did not provide details about the couple's latest addition.

Knightley's rep did not immediately respond to requests for confirmation.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" alum and the Klaxons vocalist got married during a low-key civil ceremony in May 2013 following a yearlong engagement.

Pregnancy rumors first surfaced back in December when the lithe English star was spotted sporting a hint of a baby bump. The 30-year-old made it through much of her high-profile awards season without addressing her pregnancy, mainly letting her baby bump speak for itself. She publicly confirmed that she was with child during a few TV appearances in February.

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel offered his advice when the actress stopped by his show. At that point, Knightley admitted she was unprepared for all the changes the little one would bring and wasn't sure if she was having a boy or girl. She also joked that she didn't think the baby would really need a whole room of his or her own.

"Do they need a room of their own?" she quipped. "A small room would be better really ... a cupboard."

Kimmel also warned her about changing diapers if the baby turned out to be a boy.

"You mean when I get piss in my face, I'm not allowed to abandon it?" she laughed.

Days later Knightley joshed about going into labor while appearing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

"There isn't an option to sort of keep it in, is there?" she joked with the host. "So, I'm assuming my plan is to get it out. But apparently there's more to the plan than that. I don't know what that is. Still, my plan is to get it out. It will come out."
