Congratulations again to Kate, and we find the baby’s name adorable!
Kate Winslet and her husband Ned Rocknroll have chosen a unique moniker for their first child together. U.K.’s The Sun reports that the couple will call their son Bear. “They are all doing so well. They both absolutely adore him – and the name Bear,” a source close to the pair said.
A spokesperson also confirms that the baby’s name is Bear Winslet. After giving birth at an NHS Hospital in Sussex on Saturday, December 7, the “Titanic” star took care of her new baby with her husband at their home in West Sussex.
Baby Bear is the third child for Winslet. She is also a mother a to 13-year-old daughter Mia from her marriage with film producer Jim Threapleton and a 10-year-old Joe with Sam Mendes. The baby boy, meanwhile, is the first child for Rocknroll.
The actress recently hit back at people who criticized her parenting skills. “People go, ‘Oh, my God! Those poor children. They must have gone through so much.’ They don’t go from pillar to post. They’re not flown here and there with nannies. That’s never happened. My children live with me. That is it. That is it,” she told Vogue.
Winslet is not the first celebrity who named her son Bear. “Clueless” star Alicia Silverstone, who is an animal right activist and a vegan, named her son Bear Blu. According to Silverstone, many people think that the name Bear is “super cute.”
