Robert Pattinson is officially the most popular celebrity baby boomer this year, following the birth of his son, Floyd, with partner, Kristen Stewart. Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor has become an even more desirable commodity since welcoming his son into the world. After years of press speculation, Rob finally closed the book on his love life and announced his commitment to fatherhood. This year, his celebrity status was underlined by a string of public appearances and glowing media coverage. But it was his son’s birth that truly elevated Rob to new heights – a status he fully embraced by sporting a father’s beaming smile on social media as he showed off his baby boy.
The English actor’s career had begun to flag following the underwhelming performance of his latest feature, Mad Max: Fury Road. While the dystopian action movie went on to become one of the highest grossing films of all time, it wasn’t enough to save Rob from a string of misfires. But following his son’s birth, all of that changed. Over the past year, Rob has channelled his inner child, popping up in adorable pictures with his son, as well as showcasing designer baby clothes, attending baby showers and campaigning for child-friendly reforms.
And it’s not just Rob. Hollywood’s royal couple, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, became parents for the first time this year too – a daughter, Princess Charlotte, was born in April.
With so much parental happiness in the air, why not capitalise on the trend and document it all online? The number of people searching for pictures of celebrity baby showers recently reached an all-time high, according to Google Trends. This presents an opportunity to show the world what an adorable place Hollywood truly is. Whether you’re a fan of the celebrity parents or not, there’s no denying that 2019 has been a memorable one for the film industry.
