Keira made a high-profile red carpet appearance on Sunday night at the Moet British Independent Film Awards, displaying no visible signs of a baby bump in an embroidered ivory fur-trimmed dress by Rocha.

The British star is said to have ‘steered clear from any champagne or alcohol’ throughout the night, where she presented her The Imitation Game co-star Benedict Cumberbatch with the Variety Award alongside Mark Strong.

This is the latest happy news for the talented thespian, after she was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role at both the upcoming 2015 Screen Actors Guild and the Golden Globe Awards for her role in The Imitation Game.

The Atonement actress – who has been with James, 31, since February 2011 – has made no secret of her desire to have children, but has previously insisted she would never give up her career to raise a family.

Speaking in 2012, she told Vogue magazine: ‘I don’t want to deny my femininity. But would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at.’

Speaking to Elle UK last summer, Keira appeared to have children on the brain when she discussed her fantasy film script.

She said of the imagined plot: ‘The horrendous issue of trying to have a baby when you can’t.

‘I’ve seen friends who’ve been through this, it seems like one of the most dramatic things that can happen to half of the population – and actually, the other half as well because, my god, the unbelievable toll it takes on male partners – and there are no good films about it.’

In recent weeks, Keira has been jet-setting to the UK, US and China – among other destinations – on the promotional trail for The Imitation Game, but has displayed no visible signs of a baby bump at any of her numerous photocalls.
