Most people know who Robert Pattinson is. The English actor has been in the public eye since his breakthrough role in the film Good Will Hunting and has since then starred in films like Eclipse and Legend. He was most recently seen in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey as Christian Grey, the infamous and incredibly powerful businessman. While we know a lot about Robert Pattinson, not too many people know a lot about his wife, FKA Twigs. In honor of Valentine’s Day, let’s dive into the details of their relationship.
Early Life: The Beautiful And The Talented
FKA Twigs was born in London to a mother named Tabu and a father named Bob. She has one older brother named Keita and two younger sisters named Lola and Nalola. She grew up in a large family and enjoyed a happy and carefree childhood. Her father was in the music business and worked with the likes of Michael Jackson and U2. He was also the drummer for the band Placebo.
It was music that would inspire much of what she would become. Her dad played a massive role in her career, acting as her manager and advising her on what to wear and how to act. He introduced her to numerous designers and fashion houses and even arranged for her to be featured in a Vogue shoot. Music and fashion would become two of her biggest passions, alongside literature and writing. She attended St. Martin’s School of Art in London and then went on to study sculpture at the Glasgow School of Art. There she met Robert Pattinson, who was studying film. They quickly fell in love and, in 2018, got engaged to be married.
On October 26, 2018, the couple wed in a gorgeous ceremony at St. Martin’s Church in the village of Beaconsfield in rural England. The ceremony was officiated by Justin Welby, the archbishop of London. They made their grand entrance into the church in a horse-drawn carriage. Following the ceremony, the happy couple went on their honeymoon to Italy, where they stayed at the Grand Hotel Villa Marias in Portofino for a week. There they relaxed and took in the beauty of the Italian countryside and coastline. On their wedding day, Robert wore a bespoke suit by Salvatori and a tie designed by Mr. Chow.
After two days in the church, it was time to celebrate the big day with a party. Guests at the wedding included Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Cara Delevingne, Rupert Grint, Lily Collins, and Orlando Bloom. The party continued at London’s exclusive club, White’s, where the partygoers enjoyed signature cocktails, created by industry experts, and canapés. On the final night of the celebrations, the guests headed to the ballroom for a high-energy dance party that lasted well into the early hours. It was a sumptuous affair, replete with beautiful dresses, expensive suits, and an impressive array of cakes and canapés. The newlywed couple spent their first ashymoon quietly in bed, enjoying a much-needed break from the hustle and bustle of the world.
As mentioned, the newlywed couple have a lot to celebrate. Not only did they get married but they were also featured in a Vogue shoot. The publication named them one of this year’s celebrity power couple. The shoot, directed by Grace Coddington, was inspired by Marie Kondo’s bestselling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. It was a chance for the newlyweds to show off their beautiful and elegant wedding dresses. One of the other key moments came when they opened up the gifts that were handed out at the wedding. They were overwhelmed by the extravagant gifts, including a huge diamond tiara, a Cartier love seal, and a complete set of Porcelain Teacups.
Robert and FKA Twigs have since been photographed enjoying luxurious lifestyles. The celebrity fashion brand Nordstrom, which owns numerous high-end stores, recently purchased a multi-million-dollar mansion in Beverly Hills just for the couple. Aside from the mansion, the purchase included a brand new Rolls-Royce and a private jet. The British actor also owns multiple iconic homes, including Highclere Castle in Berkshire, which he purchased in 2014 for a reported £30 million, and a lavish 100-year-old mansion in London’s Regent’s Park. In May 2019, they were seen leaving their £65,000-a-week Penthouse 4 residence in London, stepping out into a waiting chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce. A photo from the event showed them looking dazed and confused as the driver opened the car door for them.
In October 2019, the couple announced via their press agency that they are expecting a girl. The pregnancy was rumored to have happened earlier that year, but they kept it a secret until the announcement. They are already parents to a boy named Indio, born in 2017. The child’s birth was also a secret until the day of the child’s christening. On that day, they surprised everyone, not least of all themselves, with the happy news that they are parents to a bouncing baby girl named Estelle.
While we’re on the topic of children, it’s important to note that Robert Pattinson is a very private person and doesn’t like to discuss his personal life in public. He has said that he felt “suddenly very alone”, upon announcing his engagement to FKA Twigs, and hasn’t really spoken about their relationship since. He made a brief appearance at the couple’s wedding to pay tribute to his wife and walk his daughter down the aisle. He has also been spotted at the birth of his and FKA Twigs’s son, Indio, and has attended various family events. Aside from that, he keeps a very low profile, not appearing in any interviews or articles published by mainstream media.
There have been a few notable public appearances from the English actor. In 2017, he attended the Golden Globes and won the award for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical. He also appeared on stage at the 2019 San Francisco Comedy Festival, where he performed on his favorite subject, dogs. It was there that he announced the birth of his daughter, Estelle, in October 2019, with FKA Twigs. The couple made the announcement via a sweet handwritten letter posted on Twitter.
FKA Twigs has, in turn, kept very quiet about her personal life as well. The singer has only released a handful of photos of herself from her personal life, including one with her dog, Matilda, and a candid shot of her wearing a white bed sheet, as if she had just got out of bed.
The couple rarely give interviews and have so far avoided most of the speculation that surrounds them. They often stay out of the public eye and don’t give many interviews, which has made them a hot topic for gossip and speculation. However, since the birth of their daughter, they have opened up a little more about their personal life. In an interview with Wonderland magazine, FKA Twigs touched on the fact that she feels like a different person when she is with her husband, noting that she feels more liberated and happy. She also said that she feels like a ‘better’ mother since becoming a mother. In other interviews, she has mentioned that she enjoys being a stay-at-home mom, getting to enjoy “one-on-one” time with her son Indie and spending her days being his “big girl.”
Robert Pattinson & FKA Twigs are a power couple. They bring a sense of glamor and luxury to the couple’s relationship and to their fans’ delight.
