Cate Blanchett is mom to three sons – Dashiell, 7, Roman, 4 1/2, and Ignatius, nicknamed Iggy, 6 months – with husband Andrew Upton, and when Cate and White Stripes singer Jack White did Interview Magazine, she joked that she’s waiting for him to notice that their youngest son is not blond like his brothers!
“Our little one, Iggy, is 6 months old. I’m waiting for Andrew to notice that he’s got a little red fringe.”

Cate also revealed where her son’s uncommon name – and he’s not named after Iggy Pop! Stating that her son’s name is “very Catholic,” Iggy is actually named after Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.
A dad to two redheads himself – daughter Scarlett, 2 ½, and son Henry Lee, 16 months – the two also bonded over that, laughing with each other,
CB:?I know. That’s why we just have to have more of them. The world is so massively overpopulated, but if you’re halfway decent-looking and you make nice ones, then I think it’s probably your responsibility to make more.
JW:?You can always give them away if they don’t work out.
CB:?Or if they’re redheads. But, then again, yours probably are.
JW:?We’ll keep those, yeah.
Jack also shared that his children are “holding each other’s hands right now.” and noted that “each moment doesn’t last long enough, does it?”
Cate’s new movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, is due out Christmas Day.
