It’s been a tough twelve months for Robert Pattinson. After months of speculation and fan campaigns, the actor finally decided to tie the knot with his mistress, Kristen Stewart. People were initially confused as to whether or not Pattinson had actually proposed to the blonde bombshell, but the news wasn’t long in coming. The newlywed couple held a stunning wedding ceremony in Florence, Italy in front of a whopping 300 guests. As for their first dance, Stewart looked stunning in a custom-made ivory dress and gave a flawless performance. The wedding was perfectly themed to match the couple’s sophisticated yet whimsical taste. As previously reported, the British luxury brand Balmain made both of their outfits and the wedding cake was designed by French pastry chef Pierre Hermé. Stewart’s dress was inspired by the label’s iconic “Le Balmain” pattern and featured an ivory dupatta (Indian fabric used for wrapping gifts and for decoration) in a graphic print with black trim. The groom’s suit was crafted from silk charmeuse and had a cutaway silhouette with three buttons and a notch lapel. The couple’s choice of venue was none other than the Hotel de Russie in Florence, which has been the backdrop to many films and was the inspiration for the iconic Hotel Transylvania. Florence is a city known for its art and architecture, which makes it the ideal location for the pair’s big day. Guests at the wedding reception included numerous celebrities and fashion luminaries, such as Anna Wintour, Emily Ratajkowski and Natalie Massengale. The newlywed couple spent their first night as man and wife at the five-star Hotel Sotto Forte in Florence, where rooms start at £300 per night. They then continued their celebration at Il Giardino Sciarra in Venice, Italy, a gorgeous private villa surrounded by lush gardens and a large pool.

It seems like only yesterday that I was writing about the romance between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. After months of engaging in a very public courtship, the couple finally tied the knot at a small yet exclusive ceremony in a private chapel on Christmas Day in 2016. The newlywed couple opened up their hearts to each other in front of hundreds of guests, including family and friends. That same year, they were both featured in Vogue’s wedding issue, which was a beautiful homage to their love story. Fast forward to today, and the actress is pregnant as she gets ready to walk down the aisle for a second time. Many fans are wondering whether or not she’ll make the same choice again and opt for a more traditional route this time around. There are a few signs that it might be a bit of a surprise wedding this time around. For one, Stewart is reportedly considering walking down the aisle for a third time in a romantic partnership with her Fiance, Rupert Sanders. Another clue comes from the fact that the actress’ first wedding dress was designed by none other than Ralph Lauren. As for what will happen going forward, who knows? We may never know what happens next for these two.

The Biggest Surprise: Baby on the Way

For years, many fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Stewart’s first child with Sanders. After all, the couple were already parents to their children Maddie, 12, and Apple, 10, through her previous relationship with actor Sean Penn. The pregnancy and upcoming birth of Pattinson’s third child has truly taken the celebrity world by storm. The actress shared the exciting news with fans on Twitter alongside a picture of herself in a bikini with the caption, “I feel so lucky to be able to share this incredible news with you.” As expected, the news went viral, with fans celebrating the happy news and sharing their joy on social media platforms like Twitter.

In the months ahead, fans will no doubt be keeping a close eye on Stewart as she makes her way down the aisle for a third time. Not only is the actress due any day now, but she’s also reportedly considering having a baby shower in New York City earlier this year. Considering that she has been living in Paris for the last year, the idea of a Brooklyn-themed baby shower might actually be more appropriate. With fashion and beauty at the forefront, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the event were held at the Brooklyn Museum or even the Metreon.

Why Is This News?

To put it mildly, 2018 has just been a bit of a whirlwind for Robert Pattinson. Aside from his upcoming wedding, he’s also had a prominent role in the blockbuster film, Solo: A Star Wars Story, as well as the highly anticipated sequel, Solo: A Star Wars Story. The actor is arguably one of the most in-demand performers of 2018 and has been featured on the cover of numerous magazines, including Vogue and Esquire. On top of all that, he directed the highly anticipated music video for his song “Water.” The fact that he could fit all of this into his busy schedule is remarkable. It seems like it was only yesterday when I was wondering whether or not he would make it into the year 2018.

What Does this Mean for Stewart and Pattinson’s Rumors?

While Stewart has been busy focusing on her wedding and starting a family, these developments have apparently brought an end to her and Pattinson’s public courtship. For fans who have been following their romance closely, the news comes as no surprise. After all, Stewart’s previous wedding to Penn was a relatively private affair. While the couple chose to keep the details of their ceremony and reception under wraps, they did share some heartfelt anecdotes about their big day on their blog. The newlywed couple also kept in touch with fans through various means, including a podcast and Facebook pages. In 2018, it appears that Stewart has decided to devote her energies to her family and friends as she focuses less on her relationship with Pattinson.

What About Pattinson’s Future?

With his future seemingly secured, it’s time for Robert Pattinson to start thinking about his next project. While he’s undoubtedly one of the most in-demand celebrity collaborators of 2018, he’s also far from being typecast. As a matter of fact, the Twilight Saga star has expressed interest in pursuing more dramatic roles in the future. For someone who has been portrayed by tabloid journalists as a ‘boy toy’ and a ‘side piece,’ this is quite the about-turn.

With all of this in mind, it’s easy to see why fans are so excited about the prospect of a Stewart-penned wedding. The pairing of these two incredibly talented individuals seems destined to triumph. Whatever the future holds, it’s clear that 2018 has been a significant year for Robert Pattinson.
