Kate Winslet is pregnant

Kate Winslet is pregnant.

The 37-year-old Contagion actress ? who has 12-year-old daughter Mia from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton and nine-year-old son Joe from her second marriage to director Sam Mendes ? has confirmed she is expecting her first child with husband Ned Rocknroll.

A spokesperson for the couple told People.com, "Kate and Ned are delighted."

The Oscar-winner ? who tied the knot with Ned, who’s the nephew of business magnate Richard Branson, in a secret ceremony in December ? previously revealed she was eager to have at least one more child.

In an interview with InStyle magazine in 2006, she said, "I'm hoping to have more kids. I don't know whether one or two. Oh God, I would love to have more."

An insider recently told Star magazine Ned (34) was desperate to be a father.

The source said, "Kate knows how much Ned wants to be a father. She thinks they would have the most adorable kid together, so they're planning on getting pregnant by the end of the year. Having a child together is her absolute priority."
