Kate Winslet Got Married! Who is Her Husband Ned Rocknroll?

Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll

Let’s hope that the third time is a charm, at least in Kate Winslet’s case. The actress and mom got married again early this December, according to Us Weekly.

The 37-year-old was married to Jim Threapleton from 1998 to 2001 (they had one child – daughter Mia) and then she was married to director Sam Mendes from 2003 to 2011 (they had one child – son Joe).

Her new husband is Ned Rocknroll (yes Rocknroll!). The two have been romantically linked since the fall of 2011 and their wedding came as a surprise to many.

According to sources, the two got hitched in New York City with a spokesperson stating that“I can confirm that Kate Winslet married Ned Rock’nRoll in NY earlier this month in a private ceremony attended by her two children and a very few friends and family. The couple had been engaged since the summer. “And word is, Kate was given away by dear friend and Titanic costar Leonardo DiCaprio.

So who is Ned Rocknroll?

The 34-year-old Brit is the nephew of Virgin billionaire Richard Branson. His real name is Abel Smith, which pales in comparison to the name Ned Rocknroll. This is his second marriage, he was previously married to socialite Eliza Cowdray, who was the daughter of a multimillionaire viscount.  And Rockinroll is has a day job, he works for the space-travel branch of the Virgin empire.

So this begs the question, will Kate become Kate Rocknroll?!?
