"The couple have been engaged since the summer." Rockn Roll, the nephew of Sir Richard Branson who changed his name from Abel Smith, is Winslet's third husband.According to the newspaper, the "romantic, private" ceremony took place in a converted barn in New York, with just six close friends from either side present."They had been planning it for a while," the unnamed source said. Kate is very private and didn't want anyone to know." He added Winslet had "never looked so happy", with the couple's relationship being "full steam ahead" from the beginning.
If his last name clearly wasn’t enough to show you that Winslet’s new hubby has a sense of humor, Rockn Roll also happens to be the Head of Marketing Promotion and Astronaut Experience at Branson’s Virgin Galactic, a title that he apparently made up himself.
Although they’ll always be Jack and Rose to us, Kate Winslet was just ‘one of the boys’ to her iconic on-screen love Leonardo Di Caprio.

During that same visit, Tropical Storm Irene (better known as Hurricane Irene) set the business magnate’s $70 million house on fire and Winslet somewhat famously saved Branson’s 90-year-old mother.
Yesterday, her publicist confirmed the 37-year-old actress quietly wed her 34-year-old boyfriend Ned Rockn Roll in a private ceremony in New York City earlier this month.
Yes, you read that right – Winslet’s husband’s legal name is Ned Rockn Roll (don’t worry, we’ll explain that soon).
“We needed each other to lean on because we were very young and working all kinds of crazy bloody hours and it was a shock to the system,” she said.
One lucky person will bid and win a dinner date with Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet for charity. I'm not humming, I'm singing at the top of my lungs.
The winning bidder can choose to dine out in any New York City restaurant for the special night. Having a burger and fries with my favorite movie couple of all time sounds like an amazing dream. While I'll never be able to afford a date night with Di Caprio and Winslet in this lifetime, I will sit and dream about what it would be like.

We’re going to have a great time.” As for whether the two Golden Globe winners will star in a movie together again anytime soon -- it’s been eight long years since Revolutionary Road -- the 41-year-old actor told us, “I’d love to!
According to her representative, the two had been engaged since the summer and got married in front of a small group of friends and family — including Winslet’s co-star, Leonardo Di Caprio, who reportedly gave the bride away.
