Cate Blanchett and her husband Andrew Upton have added a fourth child to their brood. The couple adopted a baby girl they've named Vivienne.

"The Upton family [Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton] have adopted a baby girl. No further details will be provided," a rep for the actress said in a statement to E! News.

Cate Blanchett and her husband live fairly private lives and she isn't in the habit of suggesting that her children watch her films. She will star in the upcoming movie, Cinderella, however, and they will no doubt watch that one.

"My children are completely in the stage where I'm an utter embarrassment," she said. "I don't force them on a Saturday night to sit home and watch mummy's movies, wire coat-hanger in hand, but they'll see this one for sure."

In addition to baby Vivienne, Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton are parents to Roman Robert Upton, Ignatius Martin Upton, and Dashiell John Upton. Blanchett said in a recent interview with W magazine that she was going a bit crazy with three boys (plus her husband) taking over her home. A little girl is no doubt a most welcome addition to their family.

"It's true you do get a bit demented [with three boys]," she told the publication, before adding, "The chaos of it is great."

Cate Blanchett shared her immense talent with three films in 2014, including The Monuments Men, How to Train Your Dragon, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Congratulations are certainly in order to both Cate Blanchett and her husband on the addition of their adoptive daughter to their family.
