Keira Knightley‘s life will soon be filled with even more love, actually: she’s pregnant!

The Imitation Game actress is expecting her first child with her husband, musician James Righton, PEOPLE confirms.

Knightley, 29, and Righton, the keyboardist for the British rock band, Klaxons, were married during an intimate ceremony in a small village in Mazan, France, in May 2013.

After their wedding, the newlyweds spent their honeymoon vacationing on the Mediterranean island of Corsica.

But before the couple tied the knot, Knightley was already mapping out her future as a mother.

“I don’t want to deny my femininity,” she said in a 2012 interview with Vogue. “But would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at.”
