Keira Knightley has an extraordinary, primal love for her baby girl.

The 30-year-old welcomed her little girl with husband James Righton in May. Until now, the baby’s moniker was unknown, but in a new interview, the notoriously private star has given an insight into her new life as a mother and revealed her name.

“The love thing is astonishing. It's a very primal, primal love. That's quite extraordinary," she told the American edition of Elle. "And the ability to have no sleep and continue going. It's not pleasant - I never thought that I could actually do it for the amount of time that I've done it."

Keira tied the knot with musician James in May 2013 in the south of France. The couple shared their joy at her pregnancy in December and now that she’s gone through the whole process, the Pirates of the Caribbean actress admitted she now had a new respect for her body.

“I have to say, as a woman, you hate certain parts of your body. You go through those periods where you look in the mirror and you think, 'Oh, if only I had different legs or arms or whatever,'" she added. "[But then] you go through pregnancy and labour and then feeding the kid and you go, 'Wow, my body is totally amazing,' and I'm never going to not like it again, because it did this, and this is f**king extraordinary.”

Keira celebrated her 30th birthday in March and admitted to the publication that she was glad to see the back of her twenties.

“As a person, you’re changing so much and you’re trying to figure stuff out. Some people go wild and have a great time and throw caution to the wind, and I was the complete opposite," she explained. "I was very shy. It took me a lot of years to try and stop pleasing a lot of people and allow myself to have fun. It's the difficult thing of getting out of your own head.”
