Kate Winslet names her son Bear
Winslet, 38, gave birth to her third child in England on Dec. 7; she has a daughter Mia Honey Threapleton and a son Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes from previous relationships.
Kate Winslet decided that her son with third husband Ned Rocknroll had to have an even more ridiculous name than his father’s: She named her baby boy Bear Winslet. Her son will take her own last name.
“They are all doing so well, they both absolutely adore him — and the name Bear,” a source told The Sun. In June, friends of the couple told the Sun, “Kate and Ned have been talking about having babies since they met. Ned has always wanted kids and has been amazing with Kate’s. They are very family people.”
The name is certainly unusual but it’s not unprecedented. Alicia Silverstone has a son named Bear Blu and Jamie Oliver’s son is called Buddy Bear. According to BabyNames.com, “The meaning of the name Bear is Bear-like.” Seems pretty cut and dry to us.
Bear joins Apple, Blue Ivy and North in a long line of Hollywood royals with quirky monikers.
