    she’s “great” in what?
    Her Elizabeth shouldn’t have been @ the Oscar’s-a failure.

    Congrats to Cate and Andrew! That name is awesome! St. Ignatius was the pupil of the Apostle John for anyone who wants to know. I’m not sure if the religious affiliation is what inspired them, but it’s certainly a bold choice for a name but not surprising coming from an actress like Cate. She is kind of known for being daring, bold and always going against the grain. It’s unique and bold just like her, I like it.

    oh yes and to #7-Cate the Great is very befitting. She is “great” at everything she touches and if you’re unable to see it, I pity you. She IS Queen Elizabeth I for me!

    Congrats to Cate and her family !
    People stop being rude ! You don’t like her son’s name and so what ? They like Ignatius ! It’s better than Peaches or Apple ! I think Ignatius is unique. They can always call him Martin.

    CONGRATS!!!! I wish this time they had a girl though….wish good health to mother and son.

    Congratulations Cate! And let’s just point out that she is in that group of serious respected actors that wouldn’t dare sell photos of theri babies to magazines. Cate Blanchett has been so good in keeping the focus just on her work that unlike all these girl hollywood women having babies these days, she makes sure the media interest is just in her work not exploiting her children in the press.
