Django infer a field from other fields

I am currently having a model:

class Current(models.Model):  
    field1 = models.IntegerField()  
    field2 = models.IntegerField()
    field3 = models.IntegerField()  

I need to have field3 to be set directly equal to field1 + field2 without actually sending it. What's the standard way in django to do this?

PS: Yes, I need to save field3 in the database alongwith the other fields.

Something like this? But not sure why this would need to be saved in the database.

class Current(models.Model):  
    field1 = models.IntegerField()  
    field2 = models.IntegerField()
    field3 = models.IntegerField()  

    def save(self, *args, **kwargs):
        self.field3 = self.field1 + self.field2
        super(Current, self).save(*args, **kwargs)
