Celebrity Babies

Iggy is A Black Tie Baby!

There are no babysitters or nannies for Cate Blanchett and husband Andrew Upton.

The pair attended a glamorous charity dinner for the Sydney Theatre Company last night with baby and bed in hands.

Clutched in his mother’s arms, six-week-old Ignatius was ushered into the STC, where his parents are co-artistic directors, for the annual Armani fundraising dinner.

Blanchett, looking stunning in a black dress, carried her son into the event at The Rocks just before 7pm while her husband toted the designer baby bag.

  • No babysitters or nannies! Blanchett has an excellent nanny and although she gets no credit (like many nannies who work for celebrities – except Gwenyth Paltrow who recently praised her nanny publicly), the woman who works for her is the one who makes it possible for the Blanchetts/Uptons to have such an active work and social life. If she didn’t have a nanny, who would be looking after the other children while Ignatius was at the party proving his parents deserve a parenting award for ‘being able to do it all’ ???
