Dashiell John Upton has more than a little spring in his step — maybe because it was his 8th birthday? — while out and about in downtown Manhattan with mom Cate Blanchett and brother Roman Robert, 5 ½, on Wednesday.

Cate, 40, who recently said she “loves raising boys,” is also mom to son Ignatius Martin, 19 months.

The family is currently in New York City while the actress stars in A Streetcar Named Desire.
