Update (December 23, 2013):

Kate has confirmed she is the mother of 9-pound baby boy Bear. Seeing as Dad’s name is Ned Rocknroll we suppose Bear is really rather tame...

Original story (December 10, 2013):

Oscar Award-winning actress Kate Winslet and husband Ned Rocknroll welcomed a son into the world on Saturday, December 7 at a hospital in Sussex County, U.K., her rep confirms to People. This celeb’s little family just grew by one!

“Mother and baby are doing great,” Kate’s rep adds.

Kate, who married Ned back in December 2012, announced that she was expecting back in June. This is the Titanic star’s first child with Ned, though she already has two children, Mia, 13, and Joe, 10, from previous relationships — she was previously married to Jim Threapleton and Sam Mendes. You know what they say, third time’s the charm.

The 38-year-old Labor Day actress told InStyle back in 2006 that she was baby crazy, though this is her first kid since then. “I’m hoping to have more kids,” she told the fashion magazine. “I don’t know whether one or two. Oh, God, I would love to have more.”

We’re glad her dreams could come true, but does that mean she still wants to have another bundle of joy? Luckily it’s a little too early for that, but we’ll definitely be on baby watch with this gal in the future.

Are you excited for Kate? What do you think she’ll name her newborn? Hit the comments and let us know!
