Kristen Stewart has been very open about her blossoming romance with her Twilight co-star, Rob Pattinson. The 24-year-old actress has often described their relationship as a “perfect storm” and has revealed that they have been spending a lot of time together since shooting the final film in the Twilight series. In an interview with People magazine, Stewart confessed that she sees her future engagement to be “a really big step.”
While it would be extremely exciting to see Stewart tie the knot with Pattinson, her commitment to acting still remains her top priority. The British beauty recently wrapped production on Frank Wildhorn’s adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien novel, The Hobbit, and is also set to appear alongside Robert Downey Jr. and Brad Pitt in Ridley Scott’s The Martian. In a recent interview, Stewart praised the weight of her upcoming roles and called them “challenging” and “exciting,” adding that they have “allowed me to grow as an actor.”
It’s no secret that Stewart and Pattinson have been quietly dating for some time now and their fans have been eagerly awaiting their first appearance as a couple. In March 2016, the actress made headlines when she and Pattinson were spotted holding hands at a baseball game in Anaheim, California. Since then, the gorgeous twosome has been affectionately dubbed “Handinhand” by their admirers, and fans have eagerly awaited future public displays of their love.
Well, good news: Stewart and Pattinson appear to be making a concerted effort to keep their romance under the radar and have kept their whereabouts secret for as long as possible. However, that strategy may be about to change as Stewart is set to appear in the upcoming comedy, Baby Driver, which is due for release later this year.
Although Stewart has not yet disclosed the identity of her new boyfriend, she has described him as “a really special person” in an interview with Vogue. One of her closest confidantes is also set to become her husband once again. Stewart’s father, James, remarried in 2015 and he is currently in a relationship with television personality, Nicole Byer. The two recently revealed that they are expecting a baby together in October 2018, which will make Stewart a stepmother for the second time in her life. Byer, 51, and Jimmy Stewart, 83, have already welcomed a son, Zachary, who is also a stepbrother to the actress’ half-siblings, Grace and Cameron. (Mette Frederiksen / Getty Images)
In 2014, Stewart won an Emmy for her portrayal of Jean Grey in FX’s The X-Men animated series. The following year, she received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress – Television Series Drama and won the award. In 2018, Stewart was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in the movie of the year, Blumhouse’s Crazy Rich Asians, and won two Screen Actors Guild Awards, including one for Best Actress.
The former Isabella Stewart Williams was born in London, England and moved to Los Angeles, California at a young age. She began working as an actress at the age of 14, initially landing guest spots on American television shows before transitioning to bigger roles. Today, Stewart is among the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood and is still considered one of the greatest beauty talents of our time. In 2010, she published a memoir, On the Road to Find Myself, which became a bestseller. In it, Stewart wrote candidly about her life, her love for acting, and her determination to find the perfect partner and family of her own. (Sara Krulwich / The New York Times)
In a romantic setting, Stewart said that she sees their future engagement as “a real turning point” in their relationship and added that she feels “very lucky” to have found the man of her dreams. Last year, Stewart and Pattinson were seen holding hands while attending the San Diego Comic-Con, a place they had both confessed they love visiting. Later that month, the pair were spotted on a beach in Mexico with a romantic sunset in the background. The same month that Comic-Con wrapped, Stewart and Pattinson were spotted holding hands as they watched the sunset together from a bridge in New York City’s Central Park.
In a 2016 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Pattinson stated that he sees his future wife in “every woman.” He continued, “I love approaching women and starting a conversation – it makes me feel good. I feel like I’ve got something to offer, and I’m not talking about sex here.” Stewart’s response was, “It makes me feel like you really want to get to know me.”
Though they have kept their relationship under the veil of secrecy for as long as possible, the 24-year-old star has made it clear that she wants her future to be announced. In a Vanity Fair cover story in March 2016, Stewart revealed that she aims to wed the man of her dreams and said, “I want to share my story with the world.”
“I want to find someone who I can be with for the rest of my life and share my story with,” she continued. “I want to be happy. I want to find someone who makes me laugh. I want to be a good partner. And I want to have children. Those are the things that matter to me.”
Future Mrs. Pattinson?
The most well-known question surrounding Stewart and Pattinson is, “Will they wed?” In terms of their collective fans, the answer may be, “Yes,” but on whether or not they will actually follow through with the wedding plans, the answer is more complicated. (Richard Newstead / WireImage)
Since their whirlwind courtship, Stewart and Pattinson have attended several private parties and charity events together and have kept a relatively low profile. The closest they have come to an appearance as a couple was when they attended the 2017 Golden Globes, where they were both seated together at the ceremony. (Jeena Kawasaki / Getty Images)
Based on their public appearances and the fact that they have been seen holding hands at various events and in places such as baseball games and on beaches, it would seem that Stewart and Pattinson are headed for a wedding. However, as we have established, they are doing their best to keep their romance under the radar and have kept their whereabouts secret, so it’s no guarantee that the public will ever get to see them wed.

A Rolling Wedding?
If the stars’ public appearances are any indication, it would seem that Stewart and Pattinson may have started their relationship as a casual affair before eventually marrying each other. While it is undoubtedly a glamorous lifestyle that Stewart and Pattinson enjoy, it’s also clear that they are determined to keep their romance a secret. Therefore, it may be that they intend to keep their marriage quiet and low-profile as well.
This is not the first time that Stewart’s dating life has been the subject of press speculation. As we’ve established, she has not been shy about discussing her romantic life and her desire to find the “perfect person” to share her story with. Therefore, her next public appearance as a wife or girlfriend may not be too far off. Will Stewart finally find the perfect person to share her story with? We’ll have to wait and see.
