The Birth Of A Rumor

Famously private film actor Robert Pattinson has finally opened up about his personal life and the birth of his baby with Twilight star Bella Swan. The actor revealed in a candid interview with Elle that he and Bella, who welcomed their first baby boy last month, are both ‘very private people’ and that they try to ‘keep the most intimate things private.’ The couple has been photographed numerous times leaving and entering Babybelle’s birth hospital room. Although they have done their best to keep the media at bay, a rumor circulated that Bella had a twin sister who was tragically stillborn. The actor strongly denied this, explaining that all of the babies in the family were delivered via C-section due to Bella’s pre-term labor. He went on to say that he and his wife ‘cherish’ their son’s life and that they are ‘happy and grateful’ for every moment they spend with him.

Bella’s Mysterious Past

Bella’s past is filled with mysteries. The 22-year-old English rose was raised in a children’s home before meeting and falling for Twilight megastar and screenwriter Stephenie Meyer’s 26-year-old grandson, Jacob. The mother of three confirmed that she has been married to the 33-year-old Briton for over three years, yet refused to reveal the nature of their relationship and whether or not he was officially adopted. She also declined to speak on set during filming of the Twilight sequel, saying that she did not want to jeopardize her and Robert’s privacy. Bella has had a tumultuous relationship with her mother Carole, also rejecting her at various times during her life. According to the English rose, her birth mother is still alive and located in England. The pair have had a close relationship since Bella was a child. She has spoken openly of their bond and the pain she felt when her mother left her for Johnnie Wood. She is also protective of her birth family, regularly posting photos of herself with her younger siblings on Instagram. While we await the latest news surrounding Bella, here are some interesting tidbits about her.

The Name

Before Fame: The Early Stages

One of Bella’s earliest jobs was as a chambermaid at the luxurious London flat of Lord Lucan, the grandfather of the famous English rose, Elizabeth Taylor. During this time, she claims that she had ‘multiple’ encounters with the famous Englishman, eventually leaving her job and moving to Los Angeles in search of fame and fortune. There she began using the name ‘Bella’ as her professional identity and eventually applied for and was granted U.S. citizenship as ‘Bella Swann.’

The Education

Bella got her education at prestigious schools in England and Los Angeles, including the Sorbonne Academy and the British School of Los Angeles. While her classmates were busy studying ancient Greek and Roman history, she was learning how to be a fashion icon. She also attended the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and then went on to study acting in New York at the Tisch School of the Arts. After graduating in 2010, she began her professional acting career in London’s West End.

New York City

Bella’s career took off in 2014 when she was cast as the female lead in the Broadway revival of William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. The musical drama was a triumph and won her a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. She followed this up with her portrayal of Emily Dickinson in the musical adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Woman in White. The actress later starred in the film adaptation of the novel, which was released in 2018 and is now available to stream on Netflix.


One of Bella’s earlier film projects was the 2010 Australian horror movie Twilight, which was adapted from the 2005 bestselling novel of the same name by Meyer. The novel follows a young woman named Alice as she battles to keep her human traits while being transformed into a vampire. In the film, Bella played the role of Alice. Despite its gruesome subject matter, the movie proved to be a commercial and critical success, grossing over $280 million worldwide. During the movie’s production, Meyer also served as a producer, helping to make the film financially sustainable. The novel and film have now become two of the biggest successes of Meyer’s career. In 2020, she will be turning the pages of yet another literary success with the premiere of the television adaptation of her New York Times bestseller, The Twilight Saga: Ecliptic One. The eight-part limited series will reunite her with several of the stars and characters from her previous works, as well as introduce viewers to new characters and settings.

Bella’s Style

Bella has described her own personal style as ‘classic femme’ and has cited Chanel, Celine, and Victoria Beckham as her favorite labels. She has also stated that she wears ‘old school’ designers like Christian Dior and Balmain and contemporary labels like Stella McCartney and Marchesa. She has been photographed numerous times in the designer dresses and jewelry by these and other labels. Fashion experts and fans alike have noted that the English star has a refined sense of style and that she exudes elegance and sophistication.


Bella has never been married but has been linked to numerous famous and successful men, including Jay Z, Tom Hanks, and Charlie Sheens. Although her relationships with these men never went public, she has been photographed multiple times over the years enjoying luxurious vacations with them. Many of these men have been spotted at Babybelle’s birth hospital in England, offering the couple their support. In fact, the head of the hospital has said that he has never seen two people so in love and devotion to their young child as Bella and Robert.

These days, Bella largely keeps to herself and rarely grants interviews. However, she has spoken out about her personal life and opened up about her love for writing, her fashion choices, and her desire to become a mother. While we await any further information about her and her family, here are some interesting tidbits about her.
