Keira, 34, and James, 35 - who have remained largely out of the spotlight – tied the knot in France in May 2013, Daily Mail reports.

The couple welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Edie, in May 2015. Speaking to ELLE magazine about becoming a mother in August 2015, Keira said: "The love thing is astonishing. It's very primal, primal love. That's quite extraordinary. And the ability to have no sleep and continue going. It's not pleasant - I never thought that I could actually do it from the amount of time that I've done it."

The Aftermath actress received backlash after penning a lengthy essay in Scarlett Curtis' new book Feminists Don't Wear Pink and other lies.

In her essay, Keira appears to share her disappointment in the  Duchess of Cambridge's appearance on the steps of St Mary Hospital's Lindo Wing hours after giving birth to daughter, Princess Charlotte on 2 May 2015.

Keira later defended her comments, saying: "I would suggest to those people in the media that they re-read the entirety of the essay and not just take one bit out of it.

"The comments that I made are completely about our culture that silences women's truths and forces us all to hide and I absolutely did not shame anybody in any way, in fact quite the opposite."
