Keira Knightley and James Righton are Engaged


The Daily Mail is reporting that Keira Knightley is engaged to her rocker boyfriend of fifteen months, James Righton of the Klaxons. The romance has been low profile as Keira has guarded her privacy, but a representative of hers did in fact confirm that the couple in engaged to be married.

The actress’s spokesperson confirmed she had accepted the Klaxons rocker’s proposal following a 15 month courtship.

The London-born star, 27, started dating the 28-year-old keyboard player last year after being introduced by mutual friend Alexa Chung.

The Oscar-nominated star previously dated Pride & Prejudice co-star Rupert Friend (left in image below) for five years before splitting in January 2011, and dated Irish model and actor Jamie Dornan  (right in image below) for two years before they split in August 2005.


Knightley has ascended to becoming one of Britain’s biggest Hollywood stars since leaping to fame in Bend It Like Beckham 10 years ago. As well as the popular Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, she has also starred in big-screen adaptations of Atonement and Pride & Prejudice.

I guess when you know you know, so why wait? Congratulations to the happy couple!
