Cate Blanchett Adopts a Child


Cate Blanchett's family is growing.

The 45-year-old Oscar-winning actress just adopted a daughter with her husband, theater director Andrew Upton, her rep confirmed to People. According to Australia's Women's Weekly, the newborn's name is reportedly Vivienne.

The newest addition to the family joins Kate and Andrew's three sons, Ignatius Martin, 6, Roman Robert, 10, and Dashiell John, 13.
