I wanted so badly to give you guys some cute baby photos or even a gorgeous mom-to-be to close out the week, but it seems that Hollywood's been quiet this week (which, given the holidays, isn't surprising). I know I'm still trying to recuperate from the amount of food I consumed, but I'll try to keep myself out of the turkey coma long enough to tell you about the little secret Kate Winslet (who I love!) has been hiding for the last couple of weeks... she's married!

People magazine has confirmed that the Titanic actress, 37, and her boyfriend of just over a year, Ned Rocknroll, 34, tied the knot in a secret ceremony earlier this month. Apparently the affair was so secret that the couples' parents didn't even know: Leonardo DiCaprio gave the blushing bride away.

Although there are no photos of the event (as of yet, anyway), I'm sure Kate looked gorgeous (as she always does), and that her kids, Mia Honey Threapleton, 12, (with ex-husband Jim Threapleton) and Joe Winslet Mendes, 9, (with ex-husband Sam Mendes) were part of the New York ceremony.

Kate and Ned (who is Richard Branson's nephew and was born Ned Abel Smith but legally changed his name to Rocknroll) met in August 2011 while vacationing separately in the Caribbean. A fire broke out and the actress helped save Branson's 90-year-old grandmother... talk about making an impression!

I wish the couple all the best. Here's to hoping that Kate kept her maiden name, though.

That's all from me this time. I hope you all had a lovely holiday week (I know I did), and I'm sure Haley will have lots of things to tell you upon her return on Monday. Thanks for reading!
