Los Angeles: British actress Kate Winslet, the star of Titanic, is expecting her third child and her first by current husband Ned Rocknroll, the online edition of People magazine reported. "Kate and Ned are delighted," Winslet's representative told the publication Tuesday.
The 37-year-old beauty is the mother of Mia, 12, from her marriage to filmmaker Jim Threapleton, and Joe, 9, by her second husband, Sam Mendes, the director of American Beauty and Skyfall. Winslet and Rocknroll - who was born Ned Abel Smith but later legally changed his name, and who is the nephew of British mogul Richard Branson, the head of Virgin Group - married in a private New York ceremony in December 2012. The actress told InStyle in 2006 that she hoped to have more children. "I don't know whether one or two. Oh, God, I would love to have more," she said at the time.
Winslet, whom Queen Elizabeth II in 2012 named to be a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for her services to drama, vaulted to worldwide fame in 1997 for her role in James Cameron's "Titanic", the highest-grossing film in movie history at the time.
Rocknroll used to work for Virgin Galactic, the space-travel division of his uncle's empire. The actress, who won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in The Reader (2008), is scheduled to appear in "Labor Day" in January. (IANS/EFE)
