Actress Cate Blanchett and her husband Andrew Upton are “besotted” with their new baby daughter Edith after adopting her from the US last week.

The 45-year-old actress and her husband Andrew Upton, who already have three sons, adopted newborn Edith just over a week ago and are totally in love with the tiny bundle of joy, reported Sydney Morning Herald.

“There’s a lot of children out there that don’t have the good fortune of our biological children so it’s lovely to welcome a little girl. We’re besotted,” she said during the Australian premiere of her new film “Cinderella”.

The couple, who have been married since 1997, are planning to relocate to the US with Dashiell, 13, Roman, 10, gnatius, six, and little Edith once Upton’s term as the artistic director at the Sydney Theatre Company wraps up at the end of the year.

“We’re all looking forward to spending more time together in one place. We spent nine years living in England and we loved it. But now we’d like to try America.

“They have terrific [opportunities in] television there and Cate has a very strong film career there, too, obviously,” Upton, 49, said.
