Who is Ned Rocknroll? Meet Kate Winslet's New Husband!

Who is Ned Rocknroll? Meet Kate Winslet's New Husband!

Kate Winslet surprised everyone by the news that she secretly wed her boyfriend Ned Rocknroll earlier this month in New York.

Now the question on a lot of people’s mind is – who is he?! Let us fill you in:

First off, Ned Rocknroll is not his real name. The 34-year-old businessman was born Abel Smith and he is the nephew of Virgin Group founder Richard Branson. He currently works for his uncle’s company Virgin Galactic, which is the space-travel division of the Branson empire. Before his relationship with Kate, Ned was previously married to British socialite Eliza Pearson for two years.

It was widely reported in the summer of 2011 how Kate spent time on Branson‘s private island when the house caught fire and she and the other guests had to evacuate. What many don’t remember is that Kate was still with former boyfriend Louis Dowler at the time and split quickly after. Perhaps she fell for Ned during the vacay? Kate and Ned were soon spotted together for the first time a couple months later!

Love her work and she ‘s really sweet, but she wanna break any record? 37 years old and 3rd marriage.

# 6

Rocknroll is his real name, he had it legally changed from Abel Smith

# 7

you forget about weight, height and shoe size

# 8

Why rush in to her third marriage, which surely won’t last?

She seems unstable.

# 9

lol. You all care enough to comment and say you don’t care

Her kids (wherewver they’re kept these days) must be confused…..

@xodiak: How would the world know of their cooler-than-thou apathy if they didn’t comment with it? “Look at me! I don’t care! please… someone, someone…look…”

I guess she really wants to be the new Elizabeth Taylor.

Well, the saying does go… “A wife is not for life, just for Christmas “

I like Kate as an actress Seems a bit much a third marriage already at 37 with someone she hasn’t been with for long when there are kids involved, she seems all about herself, am sure she is a good mom too, but she seems like she would be hard to live with.

Ned Rocknroll, works with Virgin Galatica the space division of Virgin Enterprise. …

Ned Rocknroll? You can’t make this crap up. WHO in God’s green earth changes their name to Rocknroll? You know who? My 4 year old son. Star shaped sunglasses, satin cape, toy guitar and his winter boots. “I’m Ned ROCKNROLL!”. That’s the mental capacity we’re dealing with.
Kate, sounds like you’ve picked yourself another winner. What a great model for your kids. This is your daughter’s 2nd stepfather, right?

Ned Rocknroll looks like the kind of person I would trust to put me in a rocket and shoot me into space for a vacation.

The people who are saying who cares, nobody cares etc obviously you do beacause you took time of your lives to comment.

Frankly, I don’t know which is worse, Ned Rocknroll or Abel Smith. He does look younger than her. And this is all because she saved grandma from the fire. She knew who she was saving, a matriarch of one of the richest families in the world. Way to go Kate. She is a great acctress and she truly hasn’t stared in any terrible movies (I can’t think of one). Leonardo DiCaprio gave her away – OMG what a circus. And this is a woman who cringes when she hears Celine Deon perform the song from the Titanic. Oh, whatever…..

She really wants to marry Leo. He walked her down the aisle. She loves him above all.

I thought Branson was the only son in the family. How come he has a nephew?

I think that Kate’s hidden love of her life is Leo Dicaprio. In her emotional outburst on Golden Globe she openly revealed it.
Poor girl, being married three different guys, but always dreamed about one. Maybe she married this RockNRoll guy to walk with Leo hand by hand one more time?
I would not be surprised.

funny some people still have delusions of kate and leo being in love. get over it people, it’s just an effing movie!
