Pregnant Kate Winslet: Is She Changing Her Last Name To Rocknroll?

Kate Winslet secretly tied the knot last year with beau Ned Rocknroll last December and then announced her pregnancy in early June.  The very pregnant actress is currently out promoting her new movie, coincidentally called "Labor Day".  Kate shared with reporters that she probably won't be taking her husband's last name anytime soon. 

Kate's husband was actually born Ned Abel Smith, but legally changed his last name to Rocknroll several years ago.  Kate shared that she's pretty content with Winslet.  "I was never going to change my name to Rocknroll. I’ve never changed my name to anything so I didn’t see a reason to start now.  I quite like Kate Winslet; in fact I think it’s very flashy. I’m proud of my name because I’m one of three girls and we have one boy in our family so essentially the only person who is going to carry the name along is my brother and he doesn’t have any children at the moment.”

Kate just crushed my hopes a little bit.  I was secretly hoping she'd be Kate Rocknroll.  Now THAT is a flashy showbiz kind of name.
