Alex Kingston weds for third time

Alex Kingston married for the third time in Italy on Saturday (18.07.15).

The 52-year-old actress tied the knot with her long-term partner, TV producer Jonathan Stamp, at the All Saints Anglican Church in Rome.

Alex, who is best known for her work in 'Moll Flanders', 'Doctor Who' and 'ER', wore a green dress while her bridesmaids, including daughter Salome, 14, were clad in black.

She has been married twice before, once to Ralph Fiennes from 1993 to 1997 and to German journalist Florian Haertel for 12 years before their split in 2010.

Alex and Florian had Salome after numerous IVF treatments and Alex admitted that her desire to expand their family further was not echoed by her then spouse.

She said: "If I had more kids I would be happy to be a full-time mum, but that's not going to happen. My husband isn't prepared to go down the IVF road again."

Two attempts at adoption also ended in heartbreak.

Alex explained: "People assume that celebrities can adopt babies as easily as Angelina Jolie. But they don't hear about the ones who aren't successful because we don't like talking about it, it's too painful.

"I would try again in a heartbeat, but my husband won't. Maybe he'll change his mind, but at the moment he can't."
