Well-known Hollywood actor Robert Pattinson has been garnering a lot of attention since he started dating singer and actress Ed Sheeran. The two were photographed kissing at the 2018 Grammy Awards after-party. Since then, both their publicists and social media have been in overdrive as fans have been left wondering if the two will make it official and if so, when and where the wedding will take place.
While Sheeran has remained relatively quiet about his relationship with Pattinson (and their fans), the actor has been busy tweeting about their time spent together. On Valentine’s Day this year, the two-time Academy Award nominee posted a sweet message to his new girlfriend on Twitter.
“Wishing you a very happy valentine’s day,” he wrote. “You are my sunshine and my heart is full of love for you. This year has been incredible so far & I can’t wait to see what’s next.”
And what’s next for the two? A wedding of course! On March 12, Pattinson posted a gorgeous photograph of himself and Sheeran holding hands as they walked down the aisle at London’s St. James’ Church. Sheeran tied the knot with his band, Ed Sheeran’s xJACKS, in front of family and friends while Pattinson looked dashing in his tuxedo.
There was no shortage of romantic gestures and beautiful wedding snaps shared on social media. Yet another romantic gesture came from Pattinson who gave Sheeran a heart-shaped diamond as a promise to wed the poet laureate. The stunning ring is valued at over $500,000 and it will be featured in one of Sheeran’s books that he is currently writing.
“I couldn’t be happier to have found you. You make every day extraordinary,” Sheeran told Pattinson in his wedding speech. The newlyweds then slipped into a honeymoon suite at the end of the ceremony.
But it wasn’t long before the twosome were back in the public eye sharing more kisses and other intimate moments. Since their wedding day, Ed Sheeran and Robert Pattinson have been busy making headlines with their every public appearance. Here’s a roundup of all their big and small moments together.
The Big Events
The newlyweds were photographed on their first double date with other famous couples Henry and Maeve and Joe and Emma, who are all friends of Ed Sheeran. While the occasion was private, it was no secret that the group had fun teasing the new couple.
“On our first date, Ed suggested we meet for dinner and a movie, which we did. After the movie, we went for a walk and had dinner together,” Emma wrote on Instagram. “It was then that I really saw him as a husband and a father. He is so thoughtful. And I think that is what attracted me to him in the first place.”
In April 2019, the couple surprised friends and family with their first child, a son named Ægir. According to Page Six, the proud parents posted a stunning photograph of themselves on social media holding their newborn child. The couple then went on an extended honeymoon with stops in Italy and Croatia. Their wedding present from Emma was to put the finishing touches on the country house that she had been renovating since 2018.
In September, Ed Sheeran and Robert Pattinson were guests on the Sept. 17 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! The funnyman asked the couple about their exciting news, which the actor and singer confirmed was indeed an engagement. “Congratulations,” Jimmy Kimmel said. “What an amazing moment for you. Ed Sheeran, what happened? You guys got engaged, what is going on? Tell me everything.”
To celebrate the engagement, Ed Sheeran surprised his fans by posting an Instagram photo of himself and Robert Pattinson standing in front of a wedding cake. “Happy, happy, happy!” he captioned the snap. “I’m so excited to spend the rest of my life with @robertpattinson and to grow our family.” In January 2020, the couple played a crucial role in helping Joe Strummer’s widow pick up the pieces following the musician’s death.
