The Queen Is Pregnant -- Blanchett Confirms Rumors

11/3/2007 5:00 PM PDT
Cate Blanchett is pregnant with her third child, the actress told the Sydney Morning Herald.

On the red carpet for the premiere of her new movie, "Elizabeth: The Golden Age," the native Aussie actually gave a straight answer when asked if she was preggers. What a novel concept!

"Yes, I am," she told the paper. "It's early days yet. It's due in April."

Cate and her husband, writer/director Andrew Upton, already have two sons: Dashiell John, 5, and Roman Robert, 3.

A simple statement goes a long way (ahem, J.Lo and Xtina).

Blanchett's rep could not be reached for comment.
