Kate Winslet is expanding her family again. Just months after the Oscar-winning actress and “Titanic” star married 34-year-old businessman Ned Rocknroll, Winslet, 37, announced she is expecting her third child later this year.
According to Radar Online, Winslet's representative confirmed the news to People magazine Tuesday. The unidentified source said, “Kate and Ned are delighted.”
The child will make three for Winslet, who has 12-year-old Mia Honey Threapleton with director Jim Threapleton and 9-year-old Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes with her former husband and “Revolutionary Road" director Sam Mendes.
The actress spoke publicly about her new relationship in March, revealing to Bazaar magazine that her newfound love made her feel “centered.” "I feel that I'm just at the beginning of a new narrative, and it's incredibly exciting,” she said.
Winslet married Rocknroll, who was born Abel Smith and is the nephew of aviation tycoon Richard Branson, in New York City in late 2012. She kept the small event a secret even from her own family, and had her “Titanic” co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio, walk her down the aisle in place of her father, according to a report from the British Press Association. A representative confirmed at the time of the nuptials that the couple had been engaged since the summer.
The award-winning actress can be seen next in the adaption of the popular young-adult dystopian series “Divergent,” co-starring with Shailene Woodley (“The Secret Life of the American Teenger”) and Theo James (“Underworld: Awakening”).
