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!
