Not much is known about his children.

Dashiell John Upton

Blanchett’s oldest child, Dashiell John Upton, was born on Dec. 3, 2001. While Blanchett told journalists that she didn’t want theater to “feel like a family business” to Dashiell and his younger siblings in 2010, Dashiell was already showing some interest in the entertainment field the year prior.

“My oldest already performs his own version [of] Hamlet,” Blanchett told PEOPLE in 2009 of then-8-year-old Dashiell. Now 21 years old, Dashiell is currently in film school.

Roman Robert Upton.

The actress welcomed her second son, Roman Robert Upton, on April 23, 2004. Like his siblings, Roman is often kept out of the spotlight, though he has been seen joining his mom on the red carpet.

In 2014, he walked the red carpet at the Critic’s Choice Awards, and in 2018 he attended IWC Schaffhausen at SIHH in Switzerland. Blanchett frequently gushes over her son in press interviews, and in a 2015 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she discussed the meaning behind her son’s unique name — something that raised a few eyebrows.

Ignatius Martin Upton

Ignatius Martin Upton is Blanchett’s third child and was born on Jan. 1, 2008, in Sydney, Australia. The Ocean’s 8 stars previously explained the hilarious reasoning behind Ignatius’ name.

Like his older brother Roman, Ignatius’ name has a literary connection. But this time, the connection is to the children’s novel series, Captain Underpants.

Edith Vivian Patricia Upton

Blanchett and Upton adopted their daughter Edith Vivian Patricia Upton on Mar. 6, 2015.
