Cate gives birth to a son

Oscar-winning actress CATE BLANCHETT has given birth to her third child - welcoming another boy in to her family with playwright husband ANDREW UPTON.

The Elizabeth: The Golden Age star gave birth to son Ignatius Martin Upton on Sunday weighing just over eight pounds, according to Australian reports.

The 38-year-old beauty married Upton in 1997 and has two sons with the writer/director, Dashiell, 6, and Roman, 3.

Initial reports from Blachett's representatives say the mother and baby are doing well.
