It’s official: Keira and her husband James have named their daughter Edie Righton. The little girl’s name was revealed for the very first time inside Keira’s ELLE cover issue for Sept. 2015, which also marked the debut of her incredibly flawless post-baby body. Although Edie’s exact date of birth remains unknown, she was born in May 2015 — which means she went just about 3 full months without having her name revealed to the public. Well done, Keira!

Inside the article, Keira openly gushes over her first born child, and how incredible being a mother has been. “The love thing is astonishing. It’s a very primal, primal love,” Keira explained. “That’s quite extraordinary. 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 also admitted to trying therapy in the past, and although she’s not currently working with a therapist she suggests that it’s an incredible experience. “I’ve totally done therapy. I highly recommend it. I don’t do it at the moment. But in my early twenties when I found everything completely overwhelming, 100 percent, I did it,” the new mom shared.
