Actress Kate Winslet and her husband Ned Rocknroll have named their two-week-old son Bear.

The 38-year-old gave birth to the 9lb baby boy two weeks ago, but the new animal-inspired moniker has only just been disclosed.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, a source said: ''They are all doing so well, they both absolutely adore him - and the name Bear.''

Winslet already has two children; Mia Honey, 13, with her first husband Jim Threapleton, and Joe Alfie, 10, with second husband Sam Mendes.

Bear’s father Ned, who is the nephew of Sir Richard Branson, changed his name by deed poll in 2008 from Ned Abel Smith.

The couple wed last December after meeting on Richard Branson’s private Necker Island in 2011.
