For ten years, Kate Winslet spun the perfect love with Edward Abel Smith.
It can’t be said that Kate Winslet was unlucky in love, but it took her a while to find the right person to thrive in a long-lasting relationship.
After two unsuccessful marriages, the first with Jim Threapleton (the father of her daughter Mia, 20, to whom she was married between 1998 and 2001), and the second with director Sam Mendes (the father of her son Joe, 17 years, which lasted from 2003 to 2010), the actress today spins the perfect love affair with Edward Abel Smith (formerly known under the pseudonym Ned Rocknroll). In a relationship since 2011, the Hollywood star and the nephew of the founder of the Virgin group Richard Branson were married after a few months of romance, in 2012. They are the parents of a boy, Bear, who will turn 8 this year. .
In an interview given to the “New York Times” and published on May 31, 2021, Kate Winslet made rare confidences about her husband, revealing that Edward Abel (43 years old and working for Virgin Galatic, the space tourism company of the empire Virgin) had civilly added his name, Winslet, to his identity papers. “Quite simply because the children also have the name Winslet. When we all travel together, the fact that we all have this name on the passport makes it easier, ”she said.
“He is an amazing life partner”
The 45-year-old actress then expressed many compliments on the man who shares her life. “He’s a super-hot, super-human, homebody daddy. He takes care of us, especially me. I asked him earlier, “Neddy, can you do something for me?” And he said, “Anything you want.” (…) He is an extraordinary life partner. I am so, so, so lucky. For a man who is severely dyslexic, as he is, it is wonderful to train me on my lines. It is very hard for him to read aloud, but he always does. He did not particularly plan to meet and marry a woman who is publicly exposed, and who is therefore often judged, ”she added.
Kate Winslet concluded her confidences about her husband by saying that she adored his long hair which made him look like an “ocean warrior”. And to evoke the very calm character of Edward Abel. “He’s vegan, he does yoga, breathing exercises and swims in cold water.” Simple happiness.
