Stop the presses! Kate Winslet is once again a married woman.
According to the Daily Mail, Winslet tied the knot with boyfriend Ned Rocknroll in a secret service in New York earlier this month. The ceremony was so hush-hush that her parents reportedly had no idea it was happening—apparently the only people to witness the nuptials were Winslet’s children and a handful of friends. Including one Leonardo DiCaprio, who gave Winslet away in the wedding ceremony.
This is Winslet’s third marriage. She said “I do” to Jim Threapleton in 1998. They had a daughter together—Mia—but divorced in 2001. In 2003, Winslet married director Sam Mendes, also in a secret ceremony. Sadly, the pair separated in 2010. They also had one child together, Joe.
Not too, too much is known about Ned Rocknroll. He is the nephew of Richard Branson, and works for his latest venture — Virgin Galactic, which will (maybe soon?) offer flights to space. Born Abel Smith, Rocknroll had just separated from wife Eliza Cowdray when he met Winslet, possibly on the Necker Island trip in which Winslet saved Branson’s mother from a house fire.
Winslet’s spokesperson has confirmed that Winslet is a married woman, and that she and Rocknroll have been engaged since the summer. We wish these two a very happy life together and are secretly hoping that she decides to take his last name. Even if it lacks some hyphens.
