Kate Winslet is so happy with her new boyfriend she believes the pair could get married and have children together in the future.
Kate Winslet believes she could "get married" to her new boyfriend.
The 34-year-old actress has completely fallen for male model Louis Dowler, who is also 34, and has been contemplating their future together.
A friend told Britain's Grazia magazine: "As far as Kate is concerned, they could go all the way together - get married, have kids. She's the happiest we've ever seen her, he really brings out a wonderful, carefree side to her that we haven't seen for years."
Kate separated from her film director husband Sam Mendes after almost seven years of marriage in March and the break-up reportedly hit her hard.
But Louis - who started dating the 'Revolutionary Road' star in July -has brought a smile back to the Oscar winner's face and she has never been happier.
A source said: "It wasn't that long ago that Kate was heartbroken. But we're all so happy to see her back to herself - and looking sensational."
It was recently reported that Kate had asked Louis to live with her while she films her new movie 'Contagion' in Chicago, because she doesn't want to have a long distance relationship with him.
A source said: "They have discussed the idea of Louis going with her while she films so they won't have to endure a long-distance relationship at such an early stage in what seems to be something pretty serious."
The British screen beauty currently lives in New York's Greenwich Village with her two children, six-year-old son Joe, whose father is Sam, and her nine-year-old daughter Mia from her relationship with ex-husband Jim Threapleton.
