Rob Pattinson is a British-Australian actor, model, and singer who got engaged to Taylor Swift’s BFF, singer-songwriter and musician Bella Hadid, in 2019. The couple was first spotted together at a dinner party in Sydney in 2018. Many fans believe this was a ‘Meghan Markle effect’ as the former Suits actress is known for playing a role in boosting her celebrity.
However, it seems like they are happy together and Hadid recently gave birth to their daughter, Luna, in April 2020.
The actress took to Instagram to share the beautiful image of her newborn daughter. She wrote alongside the picture: ‘Luna Hadid Marlow. Most people will never have the chance to witness the miracle of life and I feel incredibly blessed to be able to spend this time with my daughter. She is perfect, as expected, and I couldn’t be happier.’
It’s been two years since the couple first met and fell in love. Although they have kept details of their daughter’s birth private, they finally shared some details about her with PEOPLE. The actor and his wife are both ‘extremely proud’ of their daughter and ‘look forward to spending time with her as a family.’
The newborn will spend some time in Australia initially learning her ropes before returning to her native Britain to start school in September 2020.
Bella Hadid’s Rising Fame
Bella Hadid is another BFF to Taylor Swift who has also been named as one of Vanity Fair’s ‘New Establishment’. She hit the big-time when she modelled for Marc Jacobs’ holiday 2020 collection. She also graced the cover of Vogue magazine in February 2020. Aside from modelling, she has graced the cover of numerous fashion magazines including Vogue, Elle, and Marie Claire. She has also been named as one of Forbes’ ‘30 Under 30′ influencers as well as being ranked number 40 on ‘The Top 50 Influencers in 2019′ list.
Why Did Bella Join the ‘New Establishment’?
According to Jacobs, Hadid was specifically chosen as one of his ‘New Establishment’ members because of her ‘amazing energy and joy’. Speaking to Vanity Fair, he said: ‘As a designer, I often get excited about new talent and the energy and joy that they bring. It’s hard to put into words the difference it makes to see a young person walk in wearing something that you’ve designed – it fills you with a mixture of pride and joy.’
Jacobs has also expressed interest in collaborating with Hadid on a capsule collection. It seems like the designer is keen to cast a wider net for his next big project as he has also recruited Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Chloe Bennet for new ‘New Establishment’ brands. The capsule collection will be unveiled next year.
How Has Bella’s Fame Affected Her Personal Life?
Bella Hadid has maintained a very public personal life since her rise to fame. In 2019, she became a first-time mother when she gave birth to her daughter, Luna, with her fiance, Rob Pattinson. The new parents are seen as a celebrity couple due to their rising fame. It seems like their personal life is flourishing and they even made it to the cover of British GQ alongside their newborn. They also have a whole range of baby products to mark their burgeoning family.
Since her arrival on the scene in 2017, Bella’s fame has steadily risen. In December 2019, she was named as one of ELLE’s ‘Women in the World’ for 2022. In January 2020, she was ranked number 39 in Forbes’ ‘Most Influential Women in World Entertainment’. In July 2019, she was ranked number 48 on OK! Magazine’s ‘Top 50 Sexiest Instagrammers’. In May 2020, she was named in New York Magazine’s ‘The Next Great British Pop Star’ list.
As her fame has risen, so has her personal life. In 2018, she was named as one of Vogue’s ‘20 Most Beautiful Women In Fashion’ and in 2020 she was again named in Vogue’s ‘The Most Influential Women In Fashion’. She is also regularly seen on the red carpet at high-profile events. These factors have combined to make Bella a popular choice among the opposite sex. As she told Vanity Fair in July 2019: ‘I always say to people that it’s not really about the looks. It’s about the person inside and that’s what really matters.’
Bella’s Fiance, Rob, Has A Storied Career
Rob Pattinson has a long and storied acting career that saw him rise to fame in 2014 after starring in the hit BBC show, The Last King Of Scotland. Since then, he has appeared in a number of high-profile films and TV shows. He is known for his work in The Lost City Of Z, where he played York, and in Victoria & Abdul where he played King George. In August 2020, he will appear in the thriller, The Widow, alongside Eva Green and Elle MacLeman. Recently, he starred in several episodes of the period drama, Victoria. MacLeman also starred in the series.
The Actor Is Well-Suited To Play A King
Not only has Rob proven himself on the big screen, he has also lent his vocal chords to numerous music projects. He wrote and released the song ‘Only Sleeping’ with his band, Four Of Swords. The track was produced by the band’s drummer and features guest vocals from British singer, Ed Sheeran. In 2018, he released his debut solo album, ÷ (pronounced ‘Divide’) and in June 2020, he will be touring the UK, Ireland and Europe in support of the album.
Born In London, But Now Lives In LA
Rob was born in London but moved to Los Angeles with his family at a young age. It was there that he developed an interest in acting. After getting his bachelor’s degree from NYU, he headed to London to pursue an acting career. It seems like his time living in LA has given him a new appreciation for the British capital. In 2021, he will be touring the UK and Ireland with Ed Sheeran in support of Sheeran’s latest album, Future Sucks.
The Actor Stays Active In A Healthy Manner
Though he has appeared in a number of high-profile films and TV shows, Rob still finds time to stay fit and healthy. In February 2020, he was photographed shirtless and playing in the snow with his kids. The family regularly enjoy holidays in either Australia or Britain where they can take advantage of the beautiful weather. In April 2020, he shared a series of photos on Instagram showing him hiking with his partner, Bella, and their kids. The hike was reportedly to take advantage of some of the beautiful scenery in the UK’s Lake District. In summer 2020, he and his kids were spotted at a local pool in Los Angeles. The family often spend their free time at the beach too.
In terms of his personal life, Rob is often spotted with sunglasses perched on the tip of his nose and a baby girl in his arms. He is very protective of her, especially while out in public. If he isn’t with his family, she is usually seen riding shotgun in the family’s black SUV. His other children, sons Xander and Milo, often join him and Bella on Instagram. In 2019, the couple bought a home in the UK’s Lake District. The house is set back from the road and features a large garden, lake and Jacuzzi.
Where Does Bella’s Fame Stand In Relation To Other Celebrities’ Starshines?
Bella Hadid’s fame stands out among other celebrities not just because of her beauty and grace. She stands out because of her humble and kind nature. This was made obvious when she was asked about her celebrity during an interview with Elle magazine in January 2020. She replied: ‘I don’t really like to think about that too much, to be honest. I’m just happy to be able to play with my kids and be a mum. That’s the most important thing to me.’
Those closest to her say that she genuinely tries to be positive in her life. In the same vein as Rob, she has been seen carrying her sunglasses on the tip of her nose and has even been seen in a bathrobe. This was in reference to an interview she did where she said: ‘I don’t feel like I need to impress anyone with my clothes or my figure. I am comfortable in my own skin, which I think is the best thing you can do as a woman.’
