The couple exchanged their wedding vows at a lavish ceremony held on the beach of a Caribbean Island in August of 2009. However, after two years of marriage, Eliza filed for divorce and they went their separate ways.

Popularity through His Marriage to Kate Winslet: Wedding Ceremony, Children

Ned achieved enormous popularity after marrying Kate Winslet, an Academy Award-winning actress known all over the world for starring in the role of Rose Dewitt Bukater in “Titanic”. The couple met by accident in August of 2011 – while she was on holiday with her children on Sir Richard Branson’s private Necker Island, a fire broke out in his uncle’s mansion and Kate was the one who helped Sir Richard’s mother to escape it.


They immediately fell in love and started dating, and eventually tied the knot at a private wedding ceremony held in New York City in December of 2012. The ceremony was attended only by their closest family and friends, but it was reported that Leonardo DiCaprio gave away the bride. Ned then adopted her two children from her earlier marriage, and the family relocated to England. In 2013, she gave birth to their son named Bear Blaze Winslet. They still apparently enjoy their love and live in a happy marriage.

Kate was previously married to film director Jim Threapleton, from 1998 to 2001; they have a daughter named Mia, born in 2000.

During the same year, Kate gave birth to their son they named Joe, but the couple divorced eight years later.

Why did he change his name?

Ned Rocknroll is popular in the media as a person who enjoys having fun, so his appearances are frequently eccentric.

So, he initially changed his birth name to Ned without any surname, but eventually decided to add the surname Rocknroll in 2008. It was chosen by deed poll, which made him even more popular.

Appearance and Vital Statistics

Regarding his appearance and physique, he’s apparently a handsome man with short dark brown hair and blue colored eyes. However, information regarding his height, weight, and vital statistics, has not been revealed to the media yet.

Social Media Presence

When it comes to speak about his presence on the social media scene, although being so popular through marriage to a famous actress, Ned has managed to keep other information regarding his personal life very low profile. Unlike his wife Kate, he’s not active and does not have any official accounts on such social platforms as Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. He tends to spend his spare time surrounded by his wife and family, rather being active on social media platforms.
