Cate Blanchett is pregnant with her third child, the actress confirmed Saturday night in her native Australia, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.
“Yes, I am,” Cate, 38, said at the Sydney premiere of her film Elizabeth: The Golden Age, according to the paper.
Informed of rumors that she is carrying a boy, Cate reportedly responded: “You know more than me. It’s early days yet. It’s due in April.”
The actress and her writer-director husband, Andrew Upton, already have two sons: Dashiell John, 5, and Roman Robert, 3.
As for expanding her family, Cate recently told W magazine that she was “not going to wait forever. … God, I’d love it to be now. I’d love it to be next week.”
Whether it’s a boy or a girl, Cate plans to spend more time in her native Australia, where she and Andrew will be co-directors of the Sydney Theatre Company – a decision partly made in the interests of her children. “He’s five now,” she said of elder son Dashiell. “He needs to be settled, and I respect that.”
