The man known for his gorgeous looks and fun-loving ways, Robert Pattinson, is embarking on a new chapter in his life. The actor and model, who has been dating Emily Blunt for several years, has recently become engaged to the English actress. The couple, who have a son together, is set to tie the knot in an intimate ceremony in May.

A New Family

The couple’s life together will be quite a change for Pattinson. Blunt is 16 years his senior and already has a son, Harry, from a previous relationship. The couple has been together since 2014 and have been a sight to behold on several occasions. They began dating after meeting on the sidelines of a volleyball game in 2014 and have since gone public with their romance. In fact, when asked about his wife-to-be, the actor replied, “I finally found someone I want to share my whole life with.”

A Career To Spare

Pattinson’s acting career has been a source of great delight to movie-goers as well as casual observers alike. His performances in movies like The Rover and Water for Elephants captivated audiences and earned him a wealth of critical and popular acclaim. His portrayal of a tortured artist in Shadowlands and Bel Ami earned him a Golden Globe nomination and SAG Awards for Best Actor. The fact that he is English adds an extra layer to an already accomplished acting resume.

A Love For Travel

The on-screen triumphs aside, Pattinson is a globetrotter at heart and has been enjoying the perks of celebrity and fame ever since he ascended to stardom. His love of travel showed in the many blockbuster movies he has appeared in. A fan of both luxury and adventure, the adventurer in him has been able to travel the world and indulge in his passion for movie-making and model-dating. The English movie star will soon be adding a trip around the world to his list of adventures.

Pattinson is currently in Turkey filming scenes for Suited Only For Love, which is set for release in theaters in early 2021. The actor is also in the country for the upcoming UEFA Champions League Final, where he will support Liverpool Football Club as they attempt to capture their fifth European Cup. The Champions League Final is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 10 at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul.

Pattinson has been open about his love for football, often tweeting about the game and players. He also has a keen interest in horse racing and has owned a number of thoroughbred racehorses. The English actor has said he learned to appreciate the finer things in life from his parents, particularly his father, who was briefly a professional tennis player. He also has a stepmother, and his two siblings, Ashling and Grace, who are from his father’s second marriage. Ashling is also a talented tennis player and has won several tennis titles.

While Pattinson has largely stayed away from the limelight since 2010, when he underwent a transformation and lost a great amount of weight as part of an extreme diet plan (he even went as far as to have a gastric bypass operation), the actor has kept himself busy travelling the world and working on his athletic pursuits. Having now settled down with Blunt, the British-born actress is also bringing a new focus to the 29-year-old’s career. She has been a strong support system for him and has helped him to stay grounded while pursuing a number of passions. Perhaps most notably, she has been by his side as he transitioned from being a heartthrob to a married man.

An Interest in Fashion And Luxury

Blunt has been an important part of Pattinson’s life since he was 18 years old. The couple met when they both appeared in the 2005 movie Twilight. At the time, Blunt was already a well-established actress in the United Kingdom, where she rose to fame playing Jane Austen’s niece, Emma Hamilton, in the 2005 movie Becoming Jane. She also starred in the 2008 movie The Duchess, which chronicles the rivalry between two 19th century aristocratic families: the Bourbons and the Orléans. (The movie also stars Emily’s cousin, Daisy Maynard.)

Blunt is a self-admitted fashion plate and has often been touted as one of the most fashionable women in Hollywood. She has long been interested in style and fashion, even designing a line of clothing for kids. Her love of expensive and luxurious brands led her to marry Pattinson, who has been open about his affinity for brands like Armani and Dior.

A Passion For Motorcycles

Pattinson grew up near the seaside town of Brighton and spent a lot of time surfing and riding motorbikes with his best friend, Charlie Hanson. The two became inseparable and inspired Charlie’s now-famous cartoon characters, Peanut Butter and Squirrel Nut Zapper. They created these heroes specifically to amuse children, but adults found the characters as interesting as children did. The story behind the characters, which was first published in the 1970s, is full of wit and humor. Peanut Butter was inspired by a trip the duo took to Italy, where they spent a lot of time eating pasta and visiting museums. They also watched some of the great masters of painting speak and learned about composition and perspective. Their affinity for motorbikes shows in the many films and commercials the two have worked on together. In fact, the pair reunited on the sets of Suited Only For Love and Water for Elephants, and have continued to work together since then. Having now settled down with Blunt, the English actor is looking forward to spending more time with his family and friends while pursuing his various interests.
