Kate Winslet's Baby Boy Bear Will Take Her Last Name, Not Rocknroll
Welp, there you have it! Bear Rocknroll will never be in Kate Winslet's household. The 38-year-old actress confirmed during a new interview that her baby boy Bear will be taking her last name. (At the time of the birth, Winslet's rep confirmed to Us Weekly the couple had named him Bear Winslet.)
"We haven't ever really had that conversation; it was always going to have my name," the Oscar winner told Glamour U.K. for its February 2014 issue. "Mia and Joe have it as part of their name, so it would be weird if this baby didn't. Of course we're not going to call it Rocknroll. People might judge all they like, but I'm a f--king grown-up."
Winslet and her husband Ned Rocknroll welcomed their first child together, a son named Bear, on Dec. 7 at an NHS Hospital in Sussex County, U.K. The British star is already mom to Mia, 13, and Joe, 10, with ex-husbands Jim Threapleton and director Sam Mendes. Winslet and Rocknroll -- the nephew of Virgin billionaire Richard Branson -- tied the knot in December 2012.
As for getting back in tip-top shape? Winslet is far from thinking about how she can easily drop the baby weight. She quipped: "Having just had a baby, I'm not going to be thinking about my arse."
