Kate Winslet is already mom to Mia, 6, and Joe, 3, but she'd like more children, she says in a new interview.

"I'm hoping to have more kids," Winslet, 31, who stars in the upcoming romantic comedy The Holiday, tells InStyle in its December issue. "I don't whether one or two. Oh, God, I would love to have more."

She's already getting glowing reviews from her little girl. "Mia said to me the other day in the car, 'Mum, I really love your cooking,' " Winslet says. "To me it was a sort of incredibly triumphant moment, the fact that she observed that I do cook their meals."

She adds, "It's great when the mum can be the person who represents all of those nurturing things for her kids. My mum was certainly that for me."

Winslet likes cooking the kids' favorites: salmon for Mia and lamb for Joe. "It makes me sound like a domestic freak," she says, "but I care very much about my kids' nutrition."

She also hopes to instill a non-materialistic sensibility in her childen. At Christmas, she says, she tells friends and family not to go overboard with gifts. "I have to phone people and say, 'Please, books and pens only, or mittens and hats.' "
