Congratulations! Keira Knightley is engaged

Someone who’s going to be doing some serious celebrating this weekend is Keira Knightely.

The actress has only gone and got herself engaged, hasn’t she?!

Keira and fiancé, Klaxons’ keyboard player, Jamie Righton will no doubt spend the weekend enjoying the good weather and relishing in the fact they will soon be man and wife.

Keira’s representative broke the good news earlier: “I can confirm that Keira is engaged to be married to James Righton.”

The couple, who have been together for 15 months, began dating after being introduced by mutual friend Alexa Chung.

Keira’s previous loves

There have been a few men in Keira’s life, but it looks like this one’s for keeps.

The Love Actually star previously dated Pride And Prejudice co-star Rupert Friend for five years before splitting in January 2011.

Last year, her father William said on her split from Friend: “It wasn’t a decision that either of them took lightly. I know they gave it a great deal of thought. I don’t think there was any one thing that led to their break-up - it was a whole raft of things, I think.”

She was also with Irish model and actor Jamie Dornan for two years before splitting in August 2005.


Jamie’s band the Klaxons won a Mercury Music Prize in 2007 for their debut album Myths Of The Near Future.

The four-piece are currently working on a new album.

Looks like Jamie’s going to be pretty busy for a while…
