Pregnant actress Kate Winslet was inspired to become a second-time mum by the mother of new husband Sam Mendes.

The TITANIC actress, who is already a mother to three-year-old Mia from her first marriage to JIM THREAPLETON, is expecting her first baby by her American Beauty director husband in the new year (04).

Kate explains, "Sam's mother said, 'Are you going to have a baby because I can't wait forever to be a grandma.'"
