Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet has revealed her third child Bear will take her surname, following weeks of speculation that the infant could be given the second name of her husband, Ned Rocknroll.
The Titanic actress, 38, told Glamour magazine that giving baby Bear her husband’s moniker had always been out of the question, so much so that which second name the child would take had not even been discussed.
She said: "We haven't ever really had that conversation; it was always going to have my name. Mia and Joe have it as part of their name, so it would be weird if this baby didn't.
"Of course we're not going to call it Rocknroll. People might judge all they like, but I'm a f****** grown-up."
Ned, real name Ned Abel Smith, changed his name by deed poll in 2008.
The couple met in 2011 while they were holidaying on Richard Branson's private island, Necker, in the Caribbean. Winslet gave birth to their son on 7 December 2013, shortly after they wed.
Her comments came during an interview to promote her upcoming film Labor Day, which is scheduled for release on 7 February. Winslet said she was drawn to the role of a divorced mother in the film because of her experiences as a parent. "It's a film about the desire for a family", she explained, "and family has played such a role in my life. It's my core, really."
Reading-born Winslet was also forthcoming about the issue of losing weight post-pregnancy during the interview."Having just had a baby, I'm not going to be thinking about my arse," she said.
