A month ago the Titanic actress was on Branson's Necker Island, saving his mother from a fire. Now reports are saying Winslet is seeing Bransons' nephew, Ned Rocknroll.

The New York Daily News reported the two had met before but were seeing other people at the time. But things felt different when the couple saw each other again during the weekend of the fire. Although Winslet, 35, traveled to the island with then-boyfriend Louis Dowler and Rocknroll, 33, was trying to work out his breaking marriage to British heiress Eliza Cowdray, sparks flew.

"Ned was heartbroken and went to Necker to take his mind off things. But when Kate came out they really hit it off," a source told UK's The Sun.

The Sun also reported the couple attended Branson's late father's memorial service together this past Tuesday. Rocknroll works for his uncle's Virgin Galactic and finds Winslet "incredibly sexy," according to the Sun's source. As for Kate, well she's been gushing ever since the two started their relationship.

"At the Emmys all she did was keep showing people pictures of Ned and talking about him," a source said.
