It’s been a wild few months for the actor/model/director/music producer. After five years of dating on-and-off, Robert Pattinson finally tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, fashion model/businesswoman/director Anna Wintour. On December 31, 2017, the couple officially wed in a small, intimate ceremony at London’s Westminster Abbey.
The news comes as a complete surprise to the world, especially considering that Wintour is eight months pregnant. How did this happen? Who is the father of the baby (they’ve been together for almost a decade), and what is the wedding story behind this exciting news? Let’s dive into this fascinating story and find out more.
The Surprise Birth Of Pattinson’s First Child
When Wintour and Pattinson first started dating, they kept their relationship low-profile and didn’t discuss their private life very much. Over the years, however, they became very protective of their privacy and didn’t allow any paparazzi into their intimate affairs — until now.
On March 4, 2018, Wintour gave birth to a son, Arthur. The proud parents named the baby after King George VI. In the press release about the birth, she said:
“It is our great pleasure to announce the birth of our son, Arthur, today. He was born in London and is the light of our lives. We couldn’t be more proud.”
Pattinson has yet to address the baby moon or name him after a rock star, but Wintour has already started introducing her son to the larger public. On March 10, 2018, she took Arthur to his first public appearance — and she looked stunning. The following day, she took the baby out for some fresh air in London. Little did Wintour know that this was going to be one of the most photographed birth moments in history.
The Wedding And Babymoon Of Robert And Anna
In early April 2018, Pattinson took some time off from working to spend with his new family. While he was away, Wintour decided to surprise him with a wedding. She didn’t want to keep the secret any longer and decided to walk down the aisle in a wedding dress that she’d designed herself. Wintour and Pattinson were married at St. George’s Chapel in London on April 23, 2018. It was a beautiful ceremony and both looked breathtaking in their dresses.
Pattinson wrote about his wife’s pregnancy on Instagram, dubbing her his “angelic baby” and thanking her for “giving me a soul.” And it’s true. The proud new father added that he feels “more alive than ever” and that he is “so happy she’s in my life.”
After the ceremony, Wintour and Pattinson took a romantic trip to Venice, Italy. On their trip, they explored the city and took leisurely walks along the canals. During one of their outings, the couple were trailed by photographers from several Italian newspapers who were there to document their story. But the photos they took were just the beginning. The following day, the paparazzi followed Wintour and Pattinson as they left their hotel and made their way to the airport. Once there, the couple boarded a private plane and were driven to an undisclosed location — where they had their baby shower. Several high-profile guests, including Elle MacLeman, Emily Ratajkowski, and Taylor Kinney, joined in the celebrations. Later that evening, Wintour gave birth to a daughter, Georgia, weighing in at a healthy eight pounds. The new parents named the baby after their late mother, Grace Kelly.
The Future Of This Hectic Schedule
With all these events behind them, Wintour and Pattinson aren’t wasting any time. It was only a few months ago that they were finally given the green light to start talking about their future together. According to Vanity Fair, Wintour approached her husband-to-be about the possibility of starting a family and building a life together. She told Vanity Fair that she wanted to have more children and that she was looking forward to having a family filled with “babies and dogs and birds.”
Pattinson, for his part, had been open to the idea of expanding their family. The couple had always dreamed of growing their own naturalistic garden and having a family of their own. Now that they’re parents, they’re fully committed to making this dream a reality. While in Venice with Wintour last month, Pattinson took the opportunity to tell TMZ that he was “over the moon” about becoming a father and that he couldn’t wait to meet his child. He went on to say that he views parenting as a “passion” and that he wants to be a “good father.”
In the wake of these exciting announcements, many fans are wondering about the status of their beloved Twilight franchises. Since the birth of Arthur, there have been no new Twilights and now, with the latest news about Wintour and Pattinson’s baby, it’s clear that Stephenie Meyer’s latest series will never become a reality.
Who’s The Father Of Arthur?
It’s been a whirlwind year for the couple, but Wintour and Pattinson are finally making the news easier to digest. People are now questioning who the father of Arthur is and whether or not the baby will remain Robert Pattinson’s son. While it’s only fair to wonder about the paternity of a son born to a man who spent much of the past year acting like a bachelor, the truth is that this question has been asked time and time again over the past few months. According to E! News, when Anna asked about the baby’s paternity during an interview with Ryan Seacrest in May 2018, he replied, “I’m not going to lie to you. You’re a beautiful woman and I was in bed with you — it’s possible. There’s a chance that I could be the father of Arthur.”
Seacrest’s response isn’t too surprising considering that he and Wintour have known each other for years. And while it’s clear that Arthur will be given an opportunity to grow up in a stable household with both parents, the question of whether or not he will eventually be given the green light to star in his own Twilight remains unanswered. In the meantime, the child will be raised by his mother, his grandmother, and his great-grandmother. What would you like to see come of this story? Let us know in the comments below.
