Wonderful news for Australia’s best loved actress.
In the celebrity world where a celebrity’s every move is watched by paparazzi and skilled go-pro users, a baby is rarely a genuine surprise. But that’s exactly what’s happened.
One of Australia’s most celebrated actresses Cate Blanchett, 45, has welcomed a new addition to her family.
This morning, Cate’s publicist confirmed the new arrival and the baby’s name: “The Upton family have adopted a baby girl. Her name is Edith Vivian Patricia Upton.”
The Cinderella star has also been spotted at Sydney airport with her new daughter.
