Looks like another baby on the way for Kate Winslet! The Hollywood beauty, age 37, is expecting her third child, which will be her first baby with new husband Ned Rocknroll. The couple wed secretly last December, in a beautiful ceremony where Kate was walked down the aisle by none other than her Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. (If Ned Rocknroll looks familiar, that’s because he is the nephew of Virgin founder and billionaire, Richard Branson. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here
Kate and Ned’s new baby will join the family and will be welcomed by both an older brother and sister. Kate has a daughter, Mia, who is twelve, and a son Joe, who is nine. After Kate split from Joe’s dad, American Beauty director Sam Mendes, back in 2010, she laid low for awhile.
She was spotted out and about with Ned in 2011, and the two survived a hellish fire on Sir Richard Branson’s private Neckish Island in 2011, which is actually the place where they first met. They have been married for almost eight months now, and it has been said that their baby will be due around the end of the year.
Even if Kate doesn’t realize it, her pregnancy is huge for women all around the world, for a different reason. Kate is a huge advocate and supporter of VBAC, or vaginal birth after c-section. Her daughter Mia was born via c-section twelve years ago, and Kate has said that she wasn’t comfortable with the whole experience, and that she didn’t feel like she really “gave birth” to Mia.
So, when her son Joe was born three years later, Kate did what not many moms do, and opted to have a VBAC. She describes Joe’s birth as completely different. It will be interesting to see what happens and if Kate opts for another VBAC with this baby whether she’s having a baby girl or boy.
Since Kate Winslet announced her third pregnancy by her third husband, several media outlets and bloggers have completely slammed Winslet, saying that she has had a “spectacularly chaotic love life,” and criticizing her “revolving door relationships.” I find this completely and utterly wrong on so many levels, and extremely rude.
I personally am very happy for Kate and her new husband and hope that they have many years of happiness together. Not everyone has a perfect love life, even celebrities, and sometimes things just don’t work out the way you plan. Kate deserves to be happy and deserves lots of love and support during her pregnancy. We wish her the best!
