Keira Knightley To Marry Rock Star Boyfriend
Hollywood star Keira Knightley is to marry her rock star boyfriend, James Righton from Klaxons.
It has been confirmed that the couple, who have been together for 15 months, are now engaged.
Oscar-nominated Knightley, 27, previously dated actor Rupert Friend for several years.
She and Righton are said to have been introduced by their TV presenter friend Alexa Chung.
Keyboardist Righton won the Mercury Prize in 2007 with his band's debut album Myths Of The Near Future.
Knightley's spokesman said: "I can confirm that Keira is engaged to be married to James Righton."
The details of the proposal are being kept under wraps. Her publicist added: "We are not discussing any further details."
Knightley, whose movie roles have included Atonement and the first three Pirates Of The Caribbean titles, is soon due to begin work on her next film in the US.
The 27-year-old will star as a wannabe singer in Can A Song Save Your Life?.
The couple have kept their romance low-key, rarely attending celebrity events together, but they have been spotted together casually on a number of occasions.
Klaxons are working on a new album after releasing their second in 2010.
what do you think?
And how long before we read of split. B O R I N G
When did you split then ? You assume everyone else does, obviously. Or is it that their fame and wealth , have warped your opinion. Very sad.

Firstly who is he and who are the Klaxons. And are they Rock really?
And why do you ask? Do you think anyone knows who you are, even with such a stretched out name. You would still complain if she was marrying someone as famous as Justin Timberlake, or such. What is it with some people. Green eyed monster, perhaps ?
I wish her well, but never heard of him or his band!!!
So you never heard of him, .... so what . She knows who he is .
Congratulations to both. And to you four other miserable jealous fools, get a life. The girl is getting married, why should it matter who he is. Just be happy for her. Julie ??? Woohooo ? I take it that means, you have such a sad life, that you just hate others being happy and successful.
Keira's press agent speaks...
Oh, and if you've never heard of Klaxons, you really are getting old.
