Robert Pattinson and Fiancee Kristen Stewart have made their pregnancy announcement with a touching video message posted on social media. The couple shared their joy at becoming parents with their fans through a series of sweet Instagram videos.
In the first of the videos, the Twilight cast members are seen playing a game on a plane. Robert looks into the camera and shares a tender message with his followers. “Sorry I wasn’t able to post on social media for a while. But I’m really happy to be able to share this video with all of you,” he says.
The actor then moves onto another team member and says: “Kristen, I promise to be a better husband to you. And I want to make you proud of being married to me. Because I know how much this pregnancy has meant to you. And I love you so much.”
In the next video, the couple’s faces are blurred as they sit together on a couch. Robert gets on one knee and looks into the camera with tears in his eyes. “I can’t believe it’s snowing outside,” he says. “And I can’t believe I get to spend the rest of my life with the person I love most in the world. Kristen Stewart, will you marry me?”
The actor then rises to his feet with a smile on his face as Kristen jumps up and down in excitement. “Yes, yes, yes!” she yells, as cameras continue to capture the joy on the couple’s faces.
In the final video, the happy couple share an emotional embrace as Robert looks into the camera and pleads: “We just want to say thank you to everyone who has supported us during this time. Whether you’ve been there for us in person or online. Thank you for all the love and the support. That means the world to us.”
The couple’s engagement and subsequent wedding to one of Hollywood’s most admired and respected actors was announced in March last year. The actor began dating the 24-year-old fashion entrepreneur several months prior to their engagement. He subsequently made numerous headlines for his eccentric and adventurous lifestyle. In April this year, it was revealed that the couple were expecting their first child together.
The news came as a shock to fans who had been keeping up with the couple’s every move. Not only had they not made a single public appearance since the engagement, but they had also kept very private lives to themselves. The announcement was made on social media with the proud parents sharing a sweet picture of themselves with their unborn baby.
Since then, the couple have made a series of appearances including a sweet graduation from Princeton University. The proud parents were also seen sporting matching graduation gowns as they posed for photos with their graduating class. The couple also welcomed Pattinson’s brother, Jason, and his family into their family in August. The actor recently wrote an article for the Huffington Post about becoming a dad.
A Wedding To Remember
The couple’s wedding was a stunning affair held at St. John’s Church in Englewood, New Jersey on November 14. The church was decorated with flowers and white lights, while photographs featuring the bride in her wedding dress and the groom in his tuxedo captured the hearts of everyone that attended. Guests were treated to a series of heartfelt speeches from the couple and their families as well as a performance by New York hip-hop star, Pusha T.
The actor’s father, Robert Pattinson Senior, gave a memorable speech at the wedding. “Tonight, you will become part of a family,” he declared. “And I couldn’t be prouder to call you my son-in-law.” The senior Pattinson went on to share some wonderful anecdotes about his late son and the impact he had on his own life. “Rob was the best mate I could ever have wished for,” he said. “He was my rock, my protector, and most importantly, my friend.” The poignant speech was followed by a performance from the musical guest which was capped off by the bride and groom’s first dance. It was an emotional and moving ceremony which reflected the strength and bond the family shares.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds took their wedding party on a whirlwind tour of the city. Kristen and Robert were driven around in a classic New York City taxi as guests lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the actress. In the following days, the couple were seen relaxing at home with their newborn baby and enjoying precious moments with each other. The proud parents have also continued to share details about their wedding and new role as parents with their followers.
The pair are frequently seen together in public and continue to enjoy each other’s company as much as ever. Since their son’s birth in June, the couple have been busy adjusting to life as a family. In addition to spending time with their child, they also continue to attend events and interviews where they can share their big news with the world. The proud parents also continue to make appearances together as a family including a sweet holiday photo shoot for Vogue Australia in which they are seen cuddling up to each other and their little boy.
As for the future, the couple are both expected to continue acting as well as pursuing other projects. A source recently told Entertainment Tonight that the plan is for Robert to play a younger version of himself in the comedy series, The Diabolical, which stars Gillian Jacobs. The show is said to be a “blend of Broad City and Sex and the City,” and will premiere on February 24 on Netflix.
As for Kristen, she will focus on her family and new role as a wife and mom. The actress recently wrapped production on the action-adventure film, The Knight Before Christmas, in which she plays Arthur’s mother, Queen Guenevere. Filming for the movie took place last year in London, England, and the U.S. In addition to her wedding day, the young mother will be seen in a series of upcoming movies including the romantic comedy, While You Were Sleeping. This year, she also has the cinematic adaptation of the bestselling Anne Rice novel, The Witching Hour, in which she plays the titular character.
Last but not least, we have to mention the couple’s biggest fans. The Robert Pattinson army continues to grow with each new detail about the actor’s life and family. Not only have they supported him through thick and thin, but they’ve also stuck by his side during this time of transition. In December, it was revealed that the “Twilight” stars had set up a foundation in their son’s name.
The Rob Pattinson Charitable Foundation, named after their newborn son, will aim to fight child poverty through the creation of “well-designed, well-built houses” in Africa. The initiative follows the lead of the “Twilight” couple’s first trip to the continent as a family. While there, they donated a total of $50,000 to various children’s charities.
“Rob is a really strong-willed, driven person,” Kristen told Vogue about her husband. “He’s not someone who’ll give up easily if he doesn’t think something is possible. So for him to want to do something that he feels will make a difference, I think that’s a really strong sign that he wants to be there for other people.”
