Confirmed: Kate Winslet And Ned Rocknroll Get Married!

‘Titanic’ actress Kate Winslet and her beau Ned Rocknroll (formerly Abel Smith) have reportedly gotten married in a secret ceremony!


Kate and Ned (who is the nephew of Virgin Galactic’s Richard Branson) tied the knot in early December in NYC, according to an insider.  The source said the ceremony was small and private, “They were surrounded by a small group of friends and close family members.” 

This will be Kate’s third marriage.  She was previously married to Jim Threapleton, with whom she shares a daughter Mia. Kate then married director Sam Mendes, with whom she shares her son, Joe.   Ned was previously married to Brit Eliza Cowdray.  Kate and Ned have been dating for a little over a year and purchased a home together in fall. 

Kate’s reps haven’t commented yet on whether or not these reports are true.  I’m hoping the rumor is true and that Kate will demand we call her Kate Rocknroll from here on out. 

Updated:  Kate’s rep shared in a statement, “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.”
