Exciting baby news for Oscar-winning actress!

It has been revealed that Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett has welcomed a baby girl into her family.

Australian news outlets have reported that Cate has adopted a baby girl named Vivienne who has been pictured with her mum while doing the school run for Cate’s other children.

This is the third child, and first daughter for Cate and her husband Andrew Upton who are also parents to Dashiell (13), Roman (10) and Ignatius (6).

Having spoken previously about loving the idea of having a fourth child, the actress’ representatives have confirmed the exciting news.

Cate is currently doing press tours for her role as the evil step-mother in Disney's adaption of Cinderella which we cannot wait to see!

Congratulations to Cate and her family on their wonderful new addition – we bet her three older brothers will be very protective of little Vivienne as she grows up!
