Oscar-winning British actress Kate Winslet is expecting her first child with third husband Ned Rocknroll, whom she married last year, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.
“Kate and Ned are delighted” at the news, a publicist told Hollywood celebrity magazine People, while another spokeswoman confirmed the information to AFP but made no comment.
The 37-year-old married Rocknroll — a nephew of British tycoon Richard Branson — last December.
She was given away by her “Titanic” co-star Leonardo DiCaprio at an intimate service in New York.
Her new 34-year-old husband, who changed his name from Abel Smith, works part-time for his uncle’s space venture Virgin Galactic.
He began dating Winslet in 2011. Winslet first married in 1998 to Jim Threapleton, who was assistant director on “Hideous Kinky” in which she starred.
They had a daughter, Mia Honey, in 2000 but split up the following year. Husband number two was Sam Mendes, the Oscar-winning British director of “American Beauty”. They married in a ceremony on the Caribbean island of Anguilla in May 2003 and their son Joe Alfie was born seven months later, but they announced an amicable split in 2010.
Winslet won her best actress Academy Award in 2009 for “The Reader.”
