Keira Knightley’s got herself a keeper.
Though the actress, 27, might have been initially into her boyfriend James Righton’s bad-boy rock star appeal, she surely brought out the softer side of the 28-year-old Klaxons keyboardist. According to a friend of the two, James “can turn into this lovestruck puppy” when he’s around Keira.
Early in May, the two announced their engagement. Reportedly, Righton’s proposal was a result of a full-on convincing of his guy friends, thinking that if he didn’t, Knightley might slip off watch. Says a close friend of the two:
Honestly, they’re good for each other. They love being engaged.
Before meeting James, Keira dated actor Rupert Friend for around five years, but she confirmed their split-up in December 2010.
The Anna Karenina actress and the rocker’s relationship was first publicized when they were caught kissing in an East London park last April. Reportedly, they were introduced to each other by Alexa Chung, a mutual friend.
We’ll surely hear the wedding bells soon!
