Kate Winslet, Ned Rocknroll

We know Kate Winslet and new hubby Ned Rocknroll have an out-of-this-world marriage, but are the newlyweds really heading to space to celebrate their union?

Those are the rumors surrounding the A-lister's marriage as of late, as tabloids report that Ned's uncle, Sir Richard Branson, gave the blissful bride a trip to space on a Virgin Galactic flight as a thank you for helping lead his mother Eve to safety after a fire broke out at Branson's Necker Island home last year.

Sounds fairly believable, right? Considering Ned reportedly works part-time for the space-traveling division of his billionaire uncle's empire.  

However, a rep for the Academy-Award winning actress tells E! News that this story is false while adding that it "was invented a while ago" but has since "been adapted to fit this week's events."

Kate and Ned wed in front of Winslet's "two children and very few friends and family" in a super-secret ceremony in New York earlier this month.

This is the Titanic star's third walk down the aisle. She has a 12-year-old daughter, MIA, with first husband Jim Threapleton, and a 9-year-old son, Joe, with director Sam Mendes.
