Kate Winslet's heart did go on.

The Oscar winner tied the knot with boyfriend Ned Rocknroll earlier this month in what apparently was a very hush-hush ceremony, her rep confirmed Wednesday to E! News.

The private ceremony was "attended by her two children and a very few friends and family," the rep said, adding that the couple got engaged over the summer.

Rocknroll, a nephew of billionaire Richard Branson, and Winslet dated for about a year and a half before taking the plunge.

The relationship with her fellow Brit first came to light when it turned out they were both staying at Branson's home on exclusive Necker Island in the Caribbean in August 2011 when a fire broke out, forcing the villa's occupants to evacuate.

This is Winslet's third trip down the aisle, though it's the first time we really would advise her to not take her husband's name. (Or, then again...)

Before she got her MRS, Winslet got a CBE from the queen!

She has a 12-year-old daughter, Mia, with first husband Jim Threapleton, and a 9-year-old son, Joe, with director Sam Mendes.

She and Mendes announced they were divorcing in 2010, a year after she won a Best Actress Oscar for The Reader and a Golden Globe for Revolutionary Road, directed by Mendes.

Rocknroll (born Abel Smith) was married once before, to socialite Eliza Cowdray.
