It seems like the perfect couple is back! Robert Pattinson is hitting the beach with a gorgeous woman at the helm of his yacht, and it’s only been a few weeks since his romance with Emily Blunt came to a happy ending. The 26-year-old actor and his 23-year-old actress lover are back on the beach, but this time there’s an extra person onboard—Emile De Ravin!
Although they’ve been pictured together countless times over the past two years, fans may be wondering if Emile and Robert will finally get down on one knee and pop the question. After all, they’ve been traveling all over the world and spending tons of quality time together—will this be enough for Robert to finally settle down?
It’s been two years since the King’s Speech star revealed he had been in a committed relationship with model and entrepreneur, Emile. The pair got engaged in a romantic beach ceremony in Italy in 2017, but it wasn’t until this past June that they confirmed their engagement in a joint statement: “After two wonderful years, we have decided to take our relationship to the next level,” the couple shared. “We have decided to become engaged, and are looking forward to sharing our future together.”
Since then, they’ve been constantly photographed in lovingly intimate settings, whether they’re cuddled up on a couch at home or relaxing in bed together. The relationship has kept many fans curious as to what is holding them back from tying the knot—is it really commitment that keeps them apart? Or is it something more?
Well, this past week the actor decided to put all these questions to bed and proposed to the beautiful Italian woman in a romantic gesture that was perfectly timed to coincide with their first anniversary.
“I want to spend the rest of my life with you,” Robert announced during a romantic dinner at the Hotel Du Vin in Venice, Italy, on Wednesday. Naturally, the proposal came with an engagement ring—a simple gold band that sparkled in the light. After spending a year in Italy, the actor says he has fallen in love with the country and its people. “I don’t know if I’ll ever feel at home in England,” he shared. “It feels like a distant memory.”
The proposal wasn’t the only romantic moment to come out of Venice on Thursday. Later that day, Emily shared a sweet Instagram post which showed her and Robert holding hands as they walked along the Ponte della Costanza bridge. The Romantic-Historic Venetian city is known for its rich history and beautiful canals, and many of its famous faces are connected to the famous Venetian name, the Rocke-Francis. In Emily’s caption, she wrote, “Happy anniversary to me and @robert_pattinson❤️ Thank you for being such an amazing husband. I love you so much.”
The wedding bells might not be ringing just yet for the couple, as they’ve both expressed their desire to take things slow and see how things play out. “We want to take our time and enjoy this moment,” Emile said in a statement. “We are both very busy, but we don’t want to rush into anything. We want to take our relationship as it comes, see where it leads, and be with each other for the right reasons.”
So, what does this all mean for Emile’s future with Robert? It seems they’ve both given in to their mutual desires and are willing to be with each other for the long haul. While it’s always great to see a committed relationship celebrated, this particular case seems a little different. It would be an incredibly romantic gesture if they did decide to marry each other, and it would give their fans a dream wedding to look forward to. However, if they decide to take their time and enjoy each other’s company, then that’s what we’re all about to get wrapped up in a big pile of wedding planning. So, which is it going to be?
For what it’s worth, both Emile and Robert have been incredibly loyal to each other over the years. The actor has been with his partner forever and is the father to her two children—a daughter, Sophia, and a son, Toby. As for Emily, she has never dated any of her co-stars and has always been faithful to Robert. She even stood by him after he was accused of rape and had to cancel the remainder of his Watchmen cast in 2014. So, it would be fair to assume that, if they do decide to wed, they have a lot to be grateful for. Love is certainly a beautiful thing, but it can also be one of the most treacherous forces in a person’s life. Hopefully, these two are smart enough to see what they have and know what they are doing. For now, it’s all about taking it easy and being grateful for what they have.
