Pregnant Kate Winslet: my kids have never gone from pillar to post

Pregnant Kate Winslet has said her two children from her previous marriages live with her full time and do not go ‘from pillar to post’.

Kate, 38, is expecting her third child with her new husband, Ned Rocknroll. The couple married last December, and made their baby announcement in June.

The soon-to-be mum-of-three told American Vogue that her 13-year-old daughter Mia and nine-year-old son Joe had not suffered because of  the breakdowns of her previous relationships.

“People go, ‘Oh, my God! Those poor children! They must have gone through so much.’ Says who?,” Kate said.

She added:  “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.”

The actress had Mia with her first husband Jim Threapleton and  Joe with her second, Sam Mendes. She said the children had good relationships with their respective dads, but did not divide their time between their parents.

“My kids don’t go back and forth; none of this 50/50 time with the mums and dads – my children live with me; that is it. That is it,” she said.
