When Cate Blanchett showed up at the premiere of The Darjeeling Limited on October 1 wearing a striking loose turquoise dress with a thick silver stripe detail it just looked like she was being fashion-forward as usual. From looking at quite a few pictures of Cate recently, I think it’s safe to assume that she was hiding a growing bump and that she’s pregnant with her third child.
On September 10th she showed a hint of a bump at the Elizabeth: The Golden Age screening at the Toronto Film Festival. She wore a gorgeous black v-neck cap-sleeve dress with purple and red pleated details. She’s a thin woman and showed a definite little bump that could indicate that she’s pregnant.
Ever since, she’s played it safe with loose clothing. She appeared at the screening of the Dylan biopic I’m Not There at the New York Film Festival last night wearing a cowl-neck black loose dress with a diagonal sash across her tummy. She looks a lot fuller in the stomach area.
In candids of her out in NY yesterday she’s wearing a straight plain gray dress and it does look like she has a bump!
Cate Blanchett lives with her two sons and her husband of ten years, playwright and screenwriter Andrew Upton, in her native Australia. Her oldest child, Dashiell John, will be six in December and her youngest, Roman Robert, is three and a half. I bet she’s expecting another one soon, and if so congratulations to her!
Cate told W Magazine in a recent interview that she wants more children soon:
More children are also part of the larger plan. She’d like a couple more, and sooner rather than later. “We’re not going to wait forever,” Blanchett says, downing a rather large vitamin pill before tucking in to a plate of crispy eggplant. “God, I’d love it to be now. I’d love it to be next week.”
Maybe she was already pregnant at that point, but if not it sounds like she was trying.
