Just in case there was any confusion, Kate Winslet wants to make sure everyone knows she is not calling her newborn baby Bear RocknRoll. Yes, Kate is married to Ned RocknRoll. And her son’s name is Bear. But little Bear is going to have Kate’s last name, thank you very much.
“Of course we're not going to call it RocknRoll,” Kate says in the new issue of Glamour UK. “People might judge all they like, but I'm a f—king grown-up."
If it strikes you as strange that Kate would refer to her newborn son as “it,” remember that magazine interviews are conducted long before the finished issue hits stands. At the time Kate said “Of course we're not going to call it RocknRoll,” her son wasn’t yet born. So her use of “it” was likely just a way to keep from spilling the baby’s gender before his arrival. Nicely done, Kate.
The Oscar-winning actress also told Glamour UK, "We haven't ever really had that conversation; it was always going to have my name. Mia and Joe have it as part of their name, so it would be weird if this baby didn't.”
Mia, 13, is Kate’s daughter with ex-husband Jim Threapleton, whom she divorced in 2001. Joe, 10, is her son with ex-husband Sam Mendes, whom she split with in 2011. Kate and Ned tied the knot in December 2012 and welcomed their little Bear cub on December 7, 2013.
So are you glad Kate’s calling her new addition Bear Winslet, or do you think she should have drawn inspiration from other crazy celebrity baby names and gone with Bear RocknRoll?
