Cate Blanchett Expecting Her Third Child

Cate Blanchett

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.”

Best Wishes!

    What she may have meant is that now he’s going to be in school and what not … so he should not be globe trotting anymore… that’s not a bad thing. I know Faith Hill & Tim McGraw have toured together so the family can stay togehter. But they said now that the kids are in school and have activities and basically “lives” of their own, that has to change…

    What I find amusing is this. Why doesn’t J Lo or X-tina announce their pregnancy (even when they obviously are?) Because they get 75 comments on their post and Cate gets 7. LOL Smart!

    Congratulations! It’s nice to see normal Hollywood parents with their child’s best interests at heart.

    Wow there is a parent in Hollywood that actually thinks of her child first. Settling down because he is 5 what an amazing concept.
