She dumps model Louis after their romance gets too serious
He was the tonic Kate Winslet needed following her painful split from hubby Sam Mendes, so we were as shocked as anyone when news emerged that it was over with hunky boyfriend Louis Dowler after four months.
But Now can reveal the reason why they split and it’s not at all what we expected!
When Louis spoke to the Oscar-winning actress about their future, he mentioned he was keen to start a family, says our insider.
But with two gorgeous children â€” Mia, 10, and Joe, six â€” by two different men, Kate baulked at the 35-year-old male model’s suggestion and called time on the relationship.
“Kate was really happy with Louis,” a pal tells Now, “but his hopes for a family with her made her realize things were getting serious.
“She didn’t want to go down the route of Ulrika Jonsson, cruelly known as “4×4” for having four kids by four different men.
“Kate witnessed the treatment Ulrika went through and is reluctant to have three kids with three different dads.”
Kate, 35, met Louis at a party in July, soon after she announced the end of her marriage to Sam Mendes, 45.
She was the picture of happiness during their brief romance and he even met her parents Sally and Roger Winslet.
“Kate was also self-conscious about what she looked like on his arm. She’s more comfortable with an older man because they make her feel young and sexy.”
