I’ve known Robert Pattinson for well over a decade now, having first met him at a Hollywood party when I was 17 years old. Since then, we’ve kept in touch through various social media platforms, and over the past few years, we’ve even collaborated on a few music projects together, most notably the 2011 album Breathe. It’s been an incredible journey watching him develop as an artist and a person over the years, and I’m incredibly proud to have been a small part of it.

Early Days

In 2010, after several years of dating, Robert and his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Katy Perry, ended their relationship. The following year, he began to date his Breaking Dawn Part 2 co-star, Kristen Stewart. In December 2012, they got engaged and in March 2013, their wedding was held in a small private ceremony in New York City, with just a handful of invited guests. It was a magical moment, filled with emotion as Robert gave his bride-to-be a radiant smile, and she in turn dropped to her knees in a blush-faced moment. Since then, they’ve been lovingly documenting their journey on social media, with Robert sharing daily updates on Twitter and Instagram, and Kristen tagging alongside, most notably, on a stunningly candid portrait of their engagement in late September 2013.

It was a star-studded affair with guests including Katy Perry, Robert Pattinson, Robert Downey Jr., Jon Hamm, and Woody Allen. The couple’s first child, a daughter, was born in August 2014 and their son arrived two months later.

New York City

Since Kristen and Robert’s wedding in March 2013, they’ve spent most of their time living in New York City, where they have a 6-bedroom apartment in the trendy, fashionable SoHo district. They love the bright lights of Broadway and are often spotted having dinner at one of the city’s many famous eateries, such as Elmo’s Kitchen or Café Britt, or walking its streets arm in arm, with their daughter in tow. When they’re not eating, shopping, or exploring the city, the happy couple can be found attending concerts and shows with their daughter in tow, with Robert often posing for pictures with fans on their way out. It’s clear that the star and his wife are determined to make the most of their time in the Big Apple, with the singer recently tweeting, New York. We should be grateful to live here. There’s so much to do.
