Kate Winslet surprised everyone when news broke Wednesday that she had married Ned Rocknroll in early December. Reports are that Rocknroll (an alias for the nephew of British billionaire Richard Branson, real name Abel Smith) and Winslet exchanged vows amongst family and friends in New York. The ceremony was reportedly an intimate one, including only the closest confidants of the couple.
This is the third marriage for Winslet, who previously married director Jim Threapleton from 1998 to 2001, and then director Sam Mendes from 2003 to 2010. Winslet has a 12-year-old daughter Mia with Treapleton and a 9-year-old son Joe with Mendes. This is the second marriage for Rocknroll, who was previously married to British socialite Eliza Cowdray, the daughter of a multimillionaire viscount.
