Keira, who is fully vaccinated, is “feeling pretty rubbish,” while her 2 and 6-year-old kids are recovering.
has confirmed that all members of her immediate household, including the actor herself, have tested positive for COVID-19.
The Oscar winner — who stars alongside Lily-Rose Depp, Annabelle Wallis, Matthew Goode, and Jojo Rabbit‘s Roman Griffin Davis in the upcoming comedy-horror holiday film Silent Night — shared her family members’ diagnoses during a recent interview with The Daily Telegraph’s
Keira noted that, while she and her husband, musician James Righton, are currently quarantining at home with their children, her COVID-19 case was the only one that presented with serious symptoms.
“Do you mind if we don’t turn our camera on?” she asked The Daily Telegraph reporter who interviewed her. “It’s just that I’ve got COVID and I’m feeling pretty rubbish.”
Keira and James married in 2013 and share two daughters, Edie and Delilah Knightley Righton, who are now six and two years old. She explained that both kids’ COVID-19 symptoms are milder than her own, while her husband is asymptomatic altogether.
“[He is] being very smug about it,” Keira said of James. “He is convinced it’s because he’s one of those cold-water swimmers and I’m not.”
Like many folks worldwide who’ve contracted the disease after having been immunized against it, Keira previously received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Keira pulled out of a project last year, an Apple TV+ series called The Essex Serpent, due to restrictions implemented as a result of the pandemic and the fact that they’d require her to spend significant time away from her and James’ youngest daughter.
Even as global vaccination numbers rise, COVID-19 is continuing to spread. Head to the ‘s website for more information about how to best protect yourself and others from the disease, or visit the website for guidance specific to the UK.
