Who is Ned Rocknroll? Meet Kate Winslet's New Husband!

Kate Winslet surprised everyone by thenews that she secretly wed her boyfriend Ned Rocknroll earlier this month in New York.

Now the question on a lot of people’s mind is – who is he?! Let us fill you in:

First off, Ned Rocknroll is not his real name. The 34-year-old businessman was born Abel Smith and he is the nephew of Virgin Group founder Richard Branson. He currently works for his uncle’s company Virgin Galactic, which is the space-travel division of theBranson empire. Before his relationship with Kate, Ned was previously married to British socialite Eliza Pearson for two years.

It was widely reported in the summer of 2011 how Kate spent time on Branson‘s private island when the house caught fire and she and the other guests had to evacuate. What many don’t remember is that Kate was still with former boyfriend Louis Dowler at the time and split quickly after. Perhaps she fell for Ned during the vacay? Kate and Ned were soon spotted together for the first time a couple months later!

#KateWinslet #Married: Actress Weds Ned Rocknroll

Kate Winslet Married

Congratulations are in order! Kate Winslet married Ned Rocknroll in a secret wedding ceremony, according to Us Weekly.

The tabloid reports that Winslet and her 34-year-old now husband (Richard Branson’s nephew) wed in early December in New York, saying "I do" at an intimate ceremony.

"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," a spokesperson told the UK’s Daily Mail. The couple had been engaged since the summer.’

We hope that third time’s a charm for the "The Reader" actress. She was previously married to Jim Threapleton (1998 – 2001) — with whom she has 12-year-old daughter, Mia — and Sam Mendes (2003 – 2010) — with whom she has 9-year-old son, Sam.

The 37-year-old is no stranger to secret weddings, either. She married Mendes on a Caribbean island in front of only 4 guests, according to the Daily Mail.

We wonder if Winslet’s special day topped her November meeting of Queen Elizabeth II, who honored her with the prestigious CBE award for services to drama.
