Kate Winslet Picks Unique Baby Name

Kate Winslet and husband Ned Rocknroll have decided on a one-of-a-kind name for their newborn son, reports Belfast Telegraph. The actress and her husband welcomed their first baby earlier this month. Winslet has two children from her two former marriages, 13-year-old Mia Honey from her marriage to Jim Threapleton, and Joe Alfie, from her marriage to Sam Mendes. According to a UK newspaper, The Sun, Winslet and Rocknroll have chosen to name their son “Bear", and are “doing well, [and] they absolutely adore him.” The actress met Ned, who happens to be Sir Richard Branson’s nephew, on the Virgin tycoon’s private Necker Island in 2011. While there, Winslet rescued Branson’s elderly mother from a fire and it was rumored her and Ned’s child would memorialize the event in some way. The Sun reports the baby’s name is also Ned’s mother’s surname. MailOnline reports Ned’s birth certificate confirms his name as Smith, which he then opted to change when becoming an adult. The Oscar-winning actress recently admitted she is not fond of the idea of taking on Ned’s new surname. “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," she told The Telegraph. "I quite like Kate Winslet; in fact I think it's very flashy. I'm proud of my name because I'm one of three girls and we have one boy in our family so essentially the only person who is going to carry the name along is my brother and he doesn't have any children at the moment." We wish Kate, Ned, and baby Bear all the happiness.
