Academy Award-winning actress, Kate Winslet, was spotted strolling with her 5-year-old son Joe Alfie in NYC on Thursday. Dad is Kate’s hubby, English stage, film and commercial director Sam Mendes. Kate also has an 8 1/2-year-old daughter, Mia Honey, from her marriage to director Jim Threapleton.
The 33-year-old actress said that creating a ‘normal’ home environment for her children is very important to her: “Having children just puts the whole world into perspective. Everything else just disappears. For my own children, I do want for them to look back and remember that it was me in the kitchen, that I was doing the packed lunches, that we were there on the school run, that we did take a bus. I want them to remember those things, because those are the things that I remember from my own childhood and that have been incredibly important to me. I also think that those are the things that children need in order to become normal kids. I don’t want them to feel that they are any different because of my job or Sam’s job.”View Slideshow »»
