Luckily the couple decided to give their baby boy her last name -- otherwise he would have Bear Rocknroll. Rar!
A spokesperson for Kate Winslet confirmed that the actress and her husband of one year, Ned Rocknroll, have named their newborn son Bear Winslet. The two welcomed their first child together on December 7 at a hospital near their West Sussex home.
Kate also has a son, Joe, with ex-husband/director Sam Mendes and a daughter, Mia, with her first ex-husband/director Jim Threapleton.
Break out the blue!

Congrats to the new parents!

Kate Winslet premiered her new film Labor Day at the BFI London Film Festival in Odeon Leicester Square on Sunday, and we think the title is pretty ironic given the fact that she's about two months away from her own labor day!
When asked whether she would be taking a long maternity leave, the expectant actress told reporters, "Err... Ask me that on a different red carpet, I've got pregnancy brain!" So what about her cravings? "I've been wanting to drink a lot of orange juice but I don't know if that is part of it," she said.
Winslet and hubby Ned Rocknroll (Richard Branson's nephew, in case you didn't know) are expecting their first child together in December. Kate also has a son, Joe, with ex-husband/director Sam Mendes and a daughter, Mia, with her first ex-husband/director Jim Threapleton.
Kate Winslet and her husband Ned Rocknroll are expecting their first child together, her rep has confirmed.
Winslet and Rocknroll got married in December of 2012, and the Oscar winner has a daughter Mia Threapleton, 12, from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton and a son Joe Mendes, 9, from her second marriage to Sam Mendes.
Winslet has always described herself as very maternal and even after she gave birth to her son in 2003 she revealed that she wanted more children. "I'm hoping to have more kids," she told InStyle in 2006. "I don't know whether one or two. Oh, God, I would love to have more."
Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll tied the knot in a secret ceremony earlier this month, according to Us Magazine.
The two were first spotted together just over a year ago, and though a rep has yet to comment on the nuptials, a source tells the mag, "They were surrounded by a small group of friends and close family members."
The Oscar winner and Rocknroll, the nephew of Virgin billionaire Richard Branson, purchased a home in West Sussex, England in September, and an insider added, "Ned is really happy with Kate. He feels he can learn so much from her."
Rocknroll was previously married to British socialite Eliza Cowdray, and Winslet was previously married to director Jim Threapleton from 1998 to 2001 (the two have a daughter, Mia, 12) and director Sam Mendes from 2003 to 2010 (they are parents to son, Joe, 9).

Kate Winslet and Evan Rachel Wood (both in sexy Elie Saab gowns) posed for pictures at the 2011 Emmy Awards on Sunday, and the Mildred Pierce actresses gave us a solid dose of old school Hollywood glamour with their classy red carpet choices.
Evan is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Mini-series/Movie, and Kate is up for Outstanding Lead Actress. The HBO mini-series earned a whopping 21 Emmy nods, so the odds are definitely in their favor!
A fun vacation turned frightening for Kate Winslet over the weekend.
The actress, 35, her two kids Mia, 10, and Joe, 7, and boyfriend Louis Dowler were four of the 20 people staying on billionaire Sir Richard Branson's private Necker Island when the vacation home caught fire.
Branson, 61, was staying in a nearby house about 100 yards away with his wife Joan and son Sam. Kate escaped unharmed, but the eight-bedroom Great House was destroyed. The fire was still burning on Monday.
In a statement, the Virgin executive said:
"We had a really bad tropical storm with winds up to 90 miles per hour. A big lightning storm came around 4 a.m. and hit the house. My son Sam rushed to the house and helped get everyone out."
Branson hopes to rebuild as soon as possible. "We have a wonderful staff here and we want them to stay in work," he says. "We'll all stay here for the time being. There's a lot of damage and we won't be able to stick it back together again right away. It was a beautiful house."
Kate Winslet graces the April cover of Glamour magazine, and she looks absolutely amazing in this Herve Leger by Max Azria dress. The Oscar winning actress also sports a sleek little black number made by Victoria Beckham, and we're absolutely loving this look. Kinda reminds us of Jennifer Lawrence's sexy red Calvin Klein Academy Awards dress -- RAWR!
Anyway, Kate chats with the glossy about everything from weight issues to her acting roles, and here's what she had to say...
On being heavy when she was younger:
â€œI will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to meâ€”and it was such a backhanded complimentâ€”they would say, â€˜Youâ€™ve got such a beautiful face,â€™ in the way of, like, â€˜Oh, isnâ€™t it a shame that from the neck down youâ€™re questionable.â€™â€
On whether or not sheâ€™s had plastic surgery or wants to change anything about her body:
â€œNo, I have never tried any of that stuffâ€¦. I donâ€™t have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody elseâ€™s or wish I could surgically adjust into some fantasy version of what they are.â€
On choosing to play the roles of angst-ridden women:
â€œItâ€™s my chance to challenge myself to the fullest, which is one of the great joys about this jobâ€¦. I love it when a character requires me to look less than my red-carpet best. Itâ€™s more fun playing a character that requires you to look like dog s--t.â€
On what it was like to win the Oscar:
â€œâ€¦I was the kid who never won the races. I never jumped the highest. I wasnâ€™t on the list of the high-achieving. That wasnâ€™t me, so winning the Oscar was like winning all the prizes in one single night that I never won as a kid. For me, it was an internal-fist-pumping moment of yes.â€
