Kate Winslet's son Bear taking her last name, not husband's

By Kyle Johnson,

Kate Winslet has revealed that her newborn son, named Bear, will not be taking her husband's last name, but rather hers.

The Labor Day actress talked with Glamour UK and said that her son will not be taking RocknRoll as his surname. Her husband, Ned, was originally named Abel Smith before having it legally changed.

She noted that it wasn't much of a conscious decision as her other two children have her name as well. "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--king grown-up."

According to E! News, Winslet also admitted that she isn't worried about getting back into pre-baby shape. "Having just had a baby, I'm not going to be thinking about my arse."

Winslet and RocknRoll welcomed Bear into the world on Dec. 8, with the birth being confirmed a few days later.

The 37-year-old actress and RocknRoll, who is Richard Branson's nephew, secretly married last year in December.
