  • The actress made her first post-baby public appearance - and dished about the earthquake she experienced earlier that day

    Kate Winslet made her first post-baby public appearance on Monday afternoon.

    The British actress, 38, gave birth to her third child, son Bear Winslet, on 7 December 2013. Now, three months later, she’s looking healthy, happy and hotter than ever.

    The Oscar winner – who married Ned Rocknroll in 2012 – was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame for her outstanding acting achievements.

    For the ceremony, Kate chose a classic LBD – a dress that not only flattered her curves but also allowed her to sit on the ground during the star ceremony. (That’s no easy combination!)

    When Kate stepped up to accept her award, she seemed a bit flustered – which is understandable, considering Los Angeles suffered a 4.4-magnitude earthquake earlier that day.

    ‘I had no idea this would be such a well-attended event – especially after the earthquake this morning. It frightened me quite a lot, actually. I made for a doorframe with my breast pump in my hand!’

    There’s a #NewMumProblem we haven’t heard before!

    During the event, Kate was honoured by her Titanic costar Kathy Bates, as well as her Divergent costar Shailene Woodley.

    ‘As a young woman it has been such an honour to see somebody who has navigated this industry in such a beautiful and professional way,’ said the 22-year-old actress.

    ‘I couldn’t be more honoured to know you and to work with you and to learn from you.’
