Jennifer Love Hewitt and Kate Winslet have both announced they are pregnant.

Winslet, 37, confirmed she is expecting her first child with her husband Ned Rocknroll, in a statement released this morning.

She also has a 12-year-old daughter, Mia, from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton, and a nine-year-old son, Joe, from her second marriage to director Sam Mendes.

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

Love Hewitt released a statement through a publicist this morning confirming she is expecting her first child with husband Brian Hallisay,

"This is a wonderful time and we are looking forward to starting our family together," the couple said.

The 34-year-old actress was previously engaged to Scottish actor Ross McCall. She currently stars in The Client List.

Hallisay, also 34, was a recurring character on the first season The Client List and became a regular this season.

Winslet, who won an Oscar for best actress for The Reader, tied the knot with Rocknroll, who is the nephew of Sir Richard Branson, in a secret ceremony in December.

In an interview with InStyle 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 that 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."
