Newsflash: Kate Winslet gets secretly married!
Kate Winslet has celebrated Christmas in an even bigger way by getting secretly married to her boyfriend, Ned Rocknroll, earlier this month. The ceremony was reportedly kept so top-secret not even the couple's parents were aware of it!
A representative for the British actress said: "I can confirm that Kate Winslet married Ned Rocknroll in New York 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."
Winslet had been dating Rocknroll, real name Abel Smith (hmm, I can see why he changed it), the nephew of billionaire Richard Branson for just over a year before tying the knot. The pair met in August 2011, when a fire broke out on a Caribbean island owned by Branson, and Winslet rescued the billionaire's 90-year-old mother. Quite a story for the grandkids!
It is the third marriage for the 34-year-old Titanic star. She was previously married to director Sam Mendes from 2003 and 2010, with whom she has a son, Joe, aged nine. Prior to that she was married to Jim Threapleton from 1998 to 2001. They have a daughter, Mia, aged 12.
I wonder now that she is a Mrs again whether she will change her name to Kate Rocknroll? Now that would be cool.
