Cate Blanchett Welcomes Baby Boy Ignatius Martin!!

Ignatius Martin, Blanchett’s fifth child with her writer-director husband Andrew Upton, was born Sunday at a Sydney hospital. He weighed 7 pounds and 15 ounces (3.6 kilograms).
That’s a big baby boy!! OMG 5 kids!! Is Cate aiming to have a soccer team or something? Must be insane at her home!
In November, when she confirmed her pregnancy, Blanchett, 38, was informed of rumors that she was expecting a boy, prompting her to respond: “You know more than me. It’s early days yet. It’s due in April!”
The couple, who is based in Australia, already has two sons: Dashiell John, 5, and Roman Robert, 3.
The family has already received congratulations from the Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd — who congratulated the actress on her baby’s safe arrival. “I want to extend my best wishes to Ms Blanchett and her family and thank her for her contribution to the Australia 2020 Summit thus far,” he said in a statement.
Congrats to the big family!!
