Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet and her husband of two years, Ned Rocknroll, welcomed a baby boy on Saturday, December 7, which means they managed to keep the baby joy to themselves for three whole days!
Baby Rocknroll was born at NHS hospital in Sussex County, UK.
Kate has two older children, Mia Honey, 13 and Joe Alfie, 10, by two different exes. Jim Threapleton is Mia’s dad, and Joe’s dad is director Sam Mendes.
When Kate announced she was expecting in June, there was a curious backlash about the fact that all of her kids had different fathers. Tabloids described her as “3×3” and I loved her response.
In an interview in Vogue magazine, she said: “People go, ‘Oh my God! Those poor children! They must have gone through so much.’ Says who?”
“They’ve always been with me. They don’t go from pillar to post; they’re not flown here and there with nannies. That’s never happened. My kids don’t go back and forth; none of this 50/50 time with the mums and the dads — my children live with me; that is it. That is it!”
She made no secret over the years about wanting more children. And I, for one, think it’s fantastic that she has. She certainly made for one radiant pregnant lady, as evidenced by this photo taken at the premiere of her latest film Labor Day.
Perhaps there will even be one more Rocknroller after this. Kate told InStyle in 2006: “I’m hoping to have more kids. I don’t know whether one or two. Oh, God, I would love to have more.”
