Baby makes six! Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton have welcomed a new addition to their family. It was announced Friday that the Oscar winner and her husband have adopted a baby girl, Edith Vivian Patricia Upton.

"The Upton family (Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton) have adopted a baby girl," her rep tells HELLO! in a statement. Their new bundle of joy joins the couple's brood of three sons, Dashiell, 13, Roman, 10, and Ignatius, 6.

The 45-year-old has spoken about balancing being a mom and an A-list Hollywood actress. "All I can think about is what I've gained," she told the Times Online back in March 2010.

She continued, "I've had to say no to things because I was pregnant, but then I had a baby, so it didn't seem like a sacrifice. I'm quite fatalistic — if something doesn't happen, then something else will."

Her successful career is only matched by her incredible marriage. She married her playwright-director husband in 1997 and has spoken about the importance of family. "It has to work for my family, otherwise I can't do the job," she added to the Times Online.
