A discreet romance that lasts
After an ultra-mediatized relationship with Kristen Stewart, his on-screen partner in the Twilight saga, and his romance with British dancer and singer FKA Twigs, Robert Pattinson is now a fulfilled man in love since crossing paths with the aptly-named Suki Waterhouse in 2018.
For the past five years, Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse have been keeping a low profile about their romance. While we don't know the details of how they met, or the little secrets of their romance, they have been photographed by the paparazzi in the streets of London and New York for several years now. However, they made their relationship official on December 3, 2022, on the red carpet of the Dior fashion show in Giza, Egypt.
Who is Suki Waterhouse?
But who exactly is Suki Waterhouse? The 31-year-old began her career as a model. She has, for example, been the face of Burberry, Ugg and the Superga brand. She also decided to try her hand at acting. She starred in the romantic comedy Love, Rosie, alongside Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, in 2014, and more recently in the series Daisy Jones & The Six (available on Prime Video), based on the book of the same name by Taylor Jenkis Reid, with co-star Riley Keough, Elvis Presley's granddaughter, and once again Sam Claflin. She also landed a small role in the Divergent saga in 2015.
In addition to acting and modeling, Suki Waterhouse is also a singer. Between 2016 and 2022, she unveiled numerous singles, including Good Looking, which was met with great success. Last year, she released her debut album, I Can't Let Go. In 2023, she unveiled a new track called To Love.
On the love front, before blossoming alongside Robert Pattinson, Suki Waterhouse dated Luke Pritchard, leader of The Kooks, in 2011, then Miles Kane of The Last Shadow Puppets between 2012 and 2013. From 2013 to 2015, she shared the life of famous actor Bradley Cooper, 17 years her senior.
Marriage coming soon?
Happily together for over five years now, Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse no longer shy away from the spotlight, living their love in the open. After appearing at the Dior fashion show in Egypt in 2022, they repeated the side-by-side experience on the red carpet of the MET Gala in New York last May. Now more confident than ever, the two stars are preparing to take the next step in their relationship by welcoming a baby, due to arrive sometime in 2024. So what does the future hold in store for them: engagement? marriage? Only time will tell, although we have no doubt that the couple will be very secretive on the subject...
