    Default Cate Blanchett welcomes another son

    And baby makes five for Cate Blanchett and her writer-director husband, Andrew Upton.

    Their third child, son Ignatius Martin, was born Sunday at a Sydney hospital, according to Australian magazine WHO. Just two days earlier Blanchett had attended her younger sister's university graduation.

    The couple, who are based in Australia, already have two sons: Dashiell John, 5, and Roman Robert, 3.

    In November, when she confirmed her pregnancy, Blanchett, 38, was informed of rumors that she was carrying a boy, prompting her to respond: "You know more than me. It's early days yet. It's due in April."

    The Aviator Supporting Actress Oscar winner and Upton are currently co-directors of the Sydney Theatre Company a career move partly made in the interests of her children. Elder son Dashiell, says his mom, "needs to be settled, and I respect that."

    And the new little one seemed settled, too even at February's Oscars. As Blanchett with a very full belly strolled the red carpet, she told PEOPLE, "He's actually asleep believe it or not, which bodes well."

    Ignatius? Interesting choice of name. It sounds very traditional... anyone know where the name originates from?

    I hope the boy doesn't get his butt kicked in school.

    Congratulations to them. I like Ignatius, even though it sounds mostly like a pope to me, and at least they gave the kid a common name too. He can go by Martin if he likes when he gets bigger.

    Congrats to Cate and her husband! I don't know if I find "Ignatius" or "Dashiell" uglier... they're peculiar names.

    Ignatius? That sounds like a villain's name in Final Fantasy. Aye but yeah the kid could go by Martin instead, I know i would.
