Kate Winslet named her third child Bear Blaze Winslet. Bear is the first child for Winslet and husband Ned Rocknroll, though Winslet has two other children, Mia and Joe, from previous marriages. She told Ellen DeGeneres she loved the name because a friend was nicknamed Bear. "He was very much a bear, he was everybody's shoulder to cry on, he was a big bear hug. He was just this great figure in my life," she said. "Bear's second name is Blaze because my husband and I met in a house fire basically," the actress said, referring to the fire that consumed billionaire Richard Branson's Caribbean home while she was staying there in 2011. "The house burnt down and we survived, but we wanted something of the fire, and so Blaze was the name that we came up with."
