Kate Winslet Explains Son Bear Blaze’s Name

Kate Winslet Honored With Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

While appearing on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Tuesday, Kate Winslet opened up about her new baby son, Bear Blaze with husband Ned Rocknroll.

The Divirgent star revealed that the 3-month-old’s older siblings Mia, 13, and Joe, 10 helped choose his name. 

“It was really lovely, actually, they were very much included, and we settled on Bear quite early on,” Winslet explained. “A friend of mine when I was younger was nicknamed Bear and I just had always really loved it. And he was very much a bear. He was everyone’s shoulder to cry on, he was a big bear hug, he was a great figure in my life.”

Kate Winslet Settles On Bear As Son’s Name

57th BFI London Film Festival - "Labor Day" Premiere
Kate Winslet
and husband Ned Rocknroll have named their newborn son Bear Winslet according to sources. This pseudo-announcement comes as a response to the two burning questions that Winslet fans (and Rocknroll fans of course) have had since it was announced that the actress was pregnant: 1) What would the name of the son be? 2) Would he have the mom’s uber famous last name or the dad’s uber cool but maybe less appropriate last name? And here we have it folks!

It was known that Winslet wasn’t a huge fan of having her newborn go by the surname of Rocknroll but this at least makes all things set in stone. Besides, with a name like Bear Rocknroll their son would probably have to follow in his daddy’s footsteps and get a legal change of name as the daddy previously went by Abel Smith.… [read more]

Kate Winslet Welcomes Third Son

57th BFI London Film Festival - "Labor Day" Premiere

Last Saturday, Dec. 7 Kate Winslet gave birth for the third time to a baby boy. This is Winslet‘s first child with husband Ned RocknRoll whom she has been seeing since Aaugust 2011, and officially tied the knot in December 2012. The British actress gave birth in Sussex County, UK, as her and hubby have been living in the UK for the past little while. Although this is Winslet‘s third child, after daughter Mia Tharpleton, 13, and son Joe Aalfie Wwinslet, 9, the birth marks a new beginning for RocknRoll who is also the nephew of British entrepreneur Richard Branson. They actually met on his privately owned Necker Island.

If you had the expected raise of eyebrow when you first read Ned’s last name, you’re not alone. His “ex” name, or his birth name if you like, was Ned Abel Smith. Why change it to RocknRoll? I could honestly think of a million reasons, who doesn’t want to be rock n’ roll right? But I’m not sure Winslet married the 35-year-old because of her ever-flowing love for his choice in picking last names: ‘I was never going to change my name to Rocknroll. I’ve never changed my name to anything so I didn’t see a reason to start now.’ … [read more]
