Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet says she named her new born son Bear Blaze after giving it a lot of thought as it denotes special memories from her life.
The 38-year-old actress, who is already a mother to daughter Mia Threapleton, 13, and Joe Mendes, 10, from previous relationships, welcomed Bear with husband Ned Rocknroll last year, reported Ace Showbiz.
“This time around, Mia and Joe were discussing during whole pregnancy’s about what are we going to call the baby. We settled on Bear quite early on. A friend of mine when I was younger was nicknamed Bear, and I just had always reallyloved it and he was very much a bear. I just always remembered him and that’s where it came from,” Winslet said.
About her son’s second name Blaze, she said,” And then Bear’s second name is Blaze because my husband and I met in a house fire basically… and the house burned down and we survived. But we wanted something of the fire.”
