Oscar winning actress Kate Winslet is now expecting her first baby with Ned Rocknroll, her new husband. It is six months since the couple tied the knot in December at New York in a private ceremony.
The news has been confirmed to People by the spokesperson for Kate Winslet, who also stated that the couple is “delighted” to have their first baby together.
Winslet, 37, had met Rocknroll, 34, at the private state of Richard Branson, the British business magnate, in British Virgin Islands on Necker islands. The actress was spending her vacations on the island in 2011. Born as Abel Smith, Ned Rocknroll is the nephew of Branson.
It was during the same trip that a fire had broken out as a lightening had struck the estate, bringing it down to ground. The mogul’s mother was rescued by Winslet who carried her to safety.
The baby Kate is expecting would be the third child of Winslet, first being a daughter with Jim Threapleton, her first husband, and the second being a son with her second husband, the director Sam Mendes.
