Cate Blanchett: ‘I Did not Adopt Just to Have a Daughter’

Cate Blanchett has dismissed speculation she turned to adoption to complete her family with a daughter, insisting she just wanted to give a less fortunate child a better chance in life.
The star and her husband Andrew Upton are already parents to three biological sons, and earlier this month, they confirmed reports they had adopted a little girl name Edith Vivian Patricia Upton. The move sparked rumors Blanchett had finally achieved a dream to add a daughter to her brood, but the actress insists it was “pot luck” whether they were given a boy or girl.
