For all of you who were waiting with bated breath to see whether Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll would saddle their child with his father's unfortunate last name, well, that was never an option. "It was always going to have my name. [Her first two children] 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," Winslet tells Glamour UK. "People might judge all they like, but I’m a f---ing grown-up." (The couple will, however, force their son to go through life with the name Bear.)

People reports that an indignant Winslet also discusses her treatment in the media, which didn't take well to the idea of her marrying for a third time and having another baby. "I’m really sorry to the nation’s press that I fell in love and got pregnant; I do apologize if you deem that irresponsible," she says. "No one has a right to comment on anyone’s life or the choices I do or don’t make. It’s very easy to be judgmental until you know someone’s truth. People have no idea at all. It baffles me, truly, that you can publicly treat a person like that. It’s not very nice." (More Kate Winslet stories.)
