LONDON (AP) — ``Titanic'' star Kate Winslet and her newborn daughter Mia are doing great and will be leaving the hospital Monday, a publicist for the British actress said Sunday.

Mia — who weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces, when she was born Thursday at a London hospital — is the first child for 25-year-old Winslet and her husband, Jim Threapleton.

The couple met in 1997 on the set of the British film ``Hideous Kinky,'' in which Winslet starred and Threapleton, 26, served as assistant director. They married the next year.

Winslet's New York-based agent Robert Garlock said the choice of the name Mia was a spur-of-the-moment decision.

``Kate and Jim had drawn up a list of 10 names, but when the baby was born none of them seemed right,'' he said. ``Then Mia came to them, and it seemed just right.''

Winslet, who spent the summer working on ``Enigma,'' a British film about code-breakers during World War II, reportedly is planning to take a seven-month career break.
