Baby boy for Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll
Although it is likely she gave birth at St Richard’s, Chichester, neither the hospital nor her agent would confirm the place of birth.
The 38-year-old star and her husband Ned Rocknroll, moved from Treyford over the Downs to the coast several months ago.
Her agent would only say: “There is no official statement but Kate had ‘baby boy Winslet’ on Saturday, December 7 at an NHS Hospital in Sussex.
Mother and baby are doing great.”
She added that the new mother and her husband were ‘thrilled to bits.’
The newborn is a third child for Kate, but a first for her husband. The baby joins Mia, 13, and Joe, nine, from Kate’s first two marriages.
Kate Winslet married Rocknroll, who was formerly wed to Lord and Lady Cowdray’s eldest daughter Eliza Pearson, last December. Rocknroll was born Ned Abel Smith, but changed his name by deed poll.He married Eliza Pearson in an open-air pagan ceremony in the grounds of Cowdray Park at Midhurst in 2009.
It was a closely guarded secret when Kate and Ned bought their Treyford home last year but they created a bit of a stir when they applied for permission for fencing and oak gates.
The parish council said they were ‘prominent, visually intrusive and incongruous.’
