KATE WINSLET’S FIRST FAMILY OF ROCKNROLL
We thought it was a bit odd when Kate Winslet, 37, married a guy named Ned Rocknroll back in December. But of course, he turned out to be Richard Branson’s nephew and that’s aristocracy in the UK. (Last we heard he was working for his uncle’s Virgin Galactic company, but that may be over.) Kate’s 34 year old husband changed his name from Abel Smith to Ned Rocknroll back in 2011. Apparently it seemed like a good idea at the time. But now that he’s married, his wife is officially Kate Rocknroll. And since Kate is now expecting, their baby, and any that may follow, will also have that last name. Is it an advantage or a drawback?
