Kate Winslet Explains Son’s Names

Kate WinsletKate Winslet's son is named in honor of the fire she escaped in 2011.

The Divergent actress met her now-husband Ned Rocknroll when they fled a fire on his uncle Richard Branson's Necker Island two years ago, so their little boy Bear Blaze was given a middle name to remind them of the incident.

"Bear's second name is Blaze because my husband and I met in a house fire basically. Well, we did! The house burned down and we survived. But we wanted something of the fire and so Blaze was the name that we came up with," she explained.

Kate - who also has children Mia, 13, and Joe, 10, from previous relationships - chose three-month-old Bear's name early in her pregnancy and he is named after one of her old friends. "When I was pregnant with Mia and Joe, I didn't name them before they came out because I always felt like I just have to see them and see who they're going to be. But of course, this time around there's Mia and Joe and the whole pregnancy is about 'What are we gonna call the baby?' So it was really lovely, actually.

Kate Winslet Slams Pregnancy Critics

Kate WinsletKate Winslet has blasted her pregnancy critics.

The Labor Day actress - who welcomed baby Bear with her husband Ned Rocknroll in December - was outraged to discover the public deemed her "irresponsible" for having three children by three different husbands, and doesn't believe anyone has the right to judge her for her lifestyle choices.

"No one has a right to comment on anyone's life or the choices I do or don't make. It's very easy to be judgemental until you know someone's truth. People have no idea at all. It baffles me, truly, that you can publicly treat a person like that. It's not very nice. I'm really sorry to the nation's press that I fell in love and got pregnant; I do apologize if you deem that irresponsible," she told British Glamour.

The 38-year-old star - who has a 13-year-old daughter, Mia, with her ex-husband Jim Threapleton and a 10-year-old son, Joe, with her second ex-spouse Sam Mendes - also scoffed at the idea of giving her newborn son businessman Ned's surname: "We haven't ever really had that conversation; it was always going to have my name. Of course we're not going to call it Rocknroll. People might judge all they like, but I'm a f**king grown-up."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Celebrity Babies, Features,

Kate WinsletKate Winslet insists her life "is not a soap opera."

The Labor Day star is adamant her existence can be just as boring as anybody else's and even though she is a Hollywood actress her life isn't full of glitz and glamour: "Here's the funny thing: my life has always been, 'What's going to happen next?' I've always been a little bit non-conformist. My life is not the soap opera people would like it to be: in fact, it's not a soap opera at all. It's just life."

The 38-year-old actress has three children, 13-year-old daughter Mia, with her ex-husband Jim Threapleton, 10-year-old son Joe with her ex-husband Sam Mendes and newborn son Bear, her baby with husband Ned Rocknroll.

Kate gave birth to Bear on December 7 and she insists she isn't going to put any pressure on herself to spring back into shape quickly as she's more interested in being a good mother: "Having just had a baby, I'm not going to be thinking about my arse."

Kate Winslet Names Her Son Bear

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Celebrity Babies, Rumors,

Kate WinsletKate Winslet has named her son Bear.

The Labor Day actress and her husband Ned Rocknroll have decided to give their first child together the unusual animal-inspired moniker, a spokesperson has confirmed. "They are all doing so well, they both absolutely adore him - and the name Bear," a source told The Sun.

Kate - who also has a 10-year-old son, Joe, with her ex-husband, Sam Mendes, and a daughter Mia, 13, with her ex-husband Jim Threapleton - is currently taking a break from the limelight to look after the two-week old tot at home in West Sussex, England.

It comes as no surprise that the couple, who tied the knot in a secret New York City ceremony in December 2012, have chosen an original name like Bear, since businessman Ned famously changed his own from Abel Smith in 2008. They aren't the first to name their child after the large furry mammal, however, since celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's son was christened Buddy Bear three years ago.

"Kate and Ned are delighted," a spokesperson for the couple said.

In an interview with InStyle in 2006, she said, "I'm hoping to have more kids. I don't know whether one or two. Oh, God, I would love to have more."

An insider recently told Star magazine that Ned, 34, was desperate to be a father: "Kate knows how much Ned wants to be a father. She thinks they would have the most adorable kid together, so they're planning on getting pregnant by the end of the year. Having a child together is her absolute priority."

Kate Winslet Accused of Snubbing Fans

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies,

Kate Winslet has been accused of snubbing her fans. The Reader beauty is said to have ignored people who waited out in the rain with the hope of meeting her when she was filming her latest movie, Labor Day in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.

Fan and local resident Shanna Swan told Star, "Kate was so rude, she never once acknowledged any of us, I was devastated. She gave dirty looks to people in my town who waited hours to see her. Upon her arrival everyone was yelling 'Kate we love you!' and you could hear everyone gasping with excitement when her black Cadillac pulled up."

However, Shanna claims the whole town was left upset when the Oscar winning actress wouldn't even look over to acknowledge them. "She always plays such warm people on the big screen, I thought she would be kind, so when she was mean, I was crushed. I watched Titanic 13 times when I was 12 years old, and Kate wouldn't even look up for a second to acknowledge we were all adoring her. Everyone in town was really hurt. After she took off, one lady right next to me specifically said, 'Wow. How rude was that?'" she added.
