There’s no question that 2014 has been a tough year for fans of celebrity couples. The year started with the sudden split of Hollywood royalty, Kate and Wills. The year continued with the much-publicized feud between Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian, and ended with the tragic breakup of former NFL player Mike Holmes and singer-actress Karrine Steffans. But amidst all the drama, there were still many couplings that remained relatively unscathed.

One of the most romantic celebrity relationships of the year came from Hollywood royalty when Robert Pattinson and Saint Vincent began dating in 2014. Here’s a look at the history of this celebrity couple.

A Brief History of Robert Pattinson and Saint Vincent

It all started when Robert Pattinson was 33-years-old and starring in the critically acclaimed romantic comedy, The Wedding Guest. One of the film’s many memorable scenes finds Pattinson’s character, David, walking down the aisle to propose to Emily. But just as he’s about to propose, her father interrupts and stops the wedding. The story turns out to be a romantic comedy, but the twist ending is that Emily doesn’t want to marry David after all. She tells her father she loves him and runs off with another man, played by Jude Law.

This was the beginning of a beautiful romance between Pattinson and Saint Vincent. The following year, the English actor was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in the same-titled movie. The year after that, Saint Vincent released her debut album, and the couple announced they were expecting their first child together. They welcomed a son, Louis, in April of 2017.

The Modern Day Love Story Of Robert Pattinson And Saint Vincent

Since their happy family photos were circulated online in 2017, people have been speculating about the future of their relationship. While it’s still very early, here’s a look at how their romance has evolved over the years.

In an interview with E! News, Pattinson opened up about his and Saint Vincent’s romantic relationship. He said the following about their relationship in 2017:

  • “It really is something special. I know that sometimes you don’t feel that way when you’re in a relationship and you have your own family, your own home, you’re established in your career, but for me, it’s always been something more. It’s been a real special thing to have this person in my life.”
  • “I feel blessed to have found someone who understands me and who accepts me for who I am and I feel like I can be myself around her. This is someone I can really share my thoughts with. I know that for some people, that can be difficult to find.”
  • “It’s been great, we’ve been through a lot together. We’ve grown up together really, which is strange because we’re such different people. We both really appreciate each other’s differences.”
  • “It’s not been a traditional route for either of us. We’ve both been really lucky to have had supportive families and I think that’s made all the difference because we could see that there was an understanding from the beginning that this was something different.”
  • “There was never any question that we were going to be together. I think that as parents, as independent contractors, as people who have careers that we don’t always focus on, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s important in life. But for us, it’s always been the other way around. Sometimes we’ve lost sight of what was important to us as individuals but we’ve always been together, we’ve always been able to put our needs second to each other’s because we trust each other.”
  • “We’ve been through a lot together, I think that’s made all the difference. I’ve had my fair share of bad experiences in life and I think that’s made me stronger and more understanding. I think that’s what’s made her grow as a person too, which is incredible.”
  • “For me, it’s been a really interesting journey. It’s not been easy and there’s been a lot of sacrifice on my part, but looking back, I wouldn’t change any of it. I think it’s made me a better person and I’m so happy that I found her.”

It’s clear that Robert Pattinson and Saint Vincent are a modern day Romeo and Juliet. Both are British actors who are incredibly talented and respected in their fields. Most importantly, they share the same vision for the world and what they want to see happen. They want people to be more empathetic, kind, and understanding.

With their bright blue eyes, chiseled good looks, and dreamy smile, it’s no wonder why so many people are anticipating the beginning of their next phase in their relationship. In the meantime, let’s enjoy these sweet moments while they last.
