Kate Winslet proud of her house-husband

10/06/2006 at 02:30 PM ET

Actress Kate Winslet, 31, feels lucky to have a husband who spends a lot of time with children. "I think it’s wonderful for men to be so much more involved with their kids. I am so blessed and lucky that I have a husband who does all that." She recently revealed she will be taking a year off to be with her children Mia, almost 6, with ex-husband Jim Threapleton and Joe, 2 1/2, with husband Sam Mendes, 41.

Her decision came after playing a mother who is disconnected from her child in ‘Little Children’. "It [doing the film] was trying to play a mother who couldn’t feel close to or look after the needs of her child. It made me more aware of my own responsibilities and reminded me how much I need my own children. That’s why I’ve decided to take a year off to be with the kids and watch them grow and just enjoy the feeling of being very motherly."

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
