Cate and husband, Andrew Upton, welcomed their third child, son Ignatius Martin, on Sunday at a Sydney hospital, according to Australian magazine WHO. Just two days earlier Cate had attended her younger sister’s university graduation.
The couple, who are based in Australia, already have two sons: Dashiell John, 5, and Roman Robert, 3.
In November, when she confirmed her pregnancy, Cate, 38, was informed of rumors that she was carrying a boy, prompting her to respond: “You know more than me. It’s early days yet. It’s due in April.”
Cate and Andrew are currently co-directors of the Sydney Theatre Company – a career move partly made in the interests of her children. Cate has said that Dashiell, “needs to be settled, and I respect that.”
