It’s been just over a year since news broke that Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz were dating. After years of playing the field, the “Twilight” couple decided to go for it and became one of the most talked about celebrity couple in recent memory. Since then, their fair share of ups and downs have made them one of the most popular topics on social media platforms like Twitter.
Despite their celebrity status, fans want to know: will they stay together? Just three months after their romance was made public, the couple revealed that they were in the planning stages of their upcoming wedding. The news was met with a mixture of cheers and jeers, with many people wondering whether or not it was just a publicity stunt.
As they gear up for their big day, it’s fair to say that the response from fans has been mostly positive. While some question the nature of their relationship, others are thrilled to see celebrities tying the knot. Having a famous parent isn’t always easy, and it can help to have someone by your side who shares the same struggles. On the topic of parenting, Pattinson discussed his plans with Cosmo UK, “I think that it’s a combination of things: society, you growing up in a family where everyone cares about you, and you being so secure in yourself, which is very important. I have a strong mother, but I didn’t talk to her for the first three years of my life. It wasn’t about her; it was about me. So, I did feel quite insecure at times, as a kid. Even now, I still feel like that occasionally. I think a lot about balance, having fun, keeping your mental health, and wanting to make your parent proud. It’s a tricky one.”
The Wedding Plans
Ever since the news broke that the ‘Twilight’ couple were getting hitched, fans have been keeping track of every detail surrounding the wedding and the newlyweds’ honeymoon. On November 20, 2018, the couple announced that they had chosen London as the place to wed. Shortly after, they revealed that they had booked a date for the wedding: July 24, 2019.
Pattinson’s parents attended the ceremony, as did Kravitz’s parents, who surprised everyone by walking down the aisle together. The bride’s father didn’t attend the wedding due to his health. Instead, her grandma and great-grandma walked her down the aisle. After the ceremony, the happy couple took their wedding party out for dinner at nearby Fishmonger’s Hall in the company of close family and friends.
Pattinson and Kravitz’s wedding was met with a mixture of emotions from fans. While some were over the moon to see the couple tying the knot, others were upset that they had to wait so long to get married. In the lead-up to the wedding, Kravitz spoke to Entertainment Tonight about why she and her husband had decided to wed. “For us, it was about finding that happy balance and being able to give each other the emotional intimacy we’ve always wanted. Being able to share that with our families and friends has been incredible. It’s the best day of my life so far,” she said.
Since their wedding day, Pattinson and Kravitz have been making the most of their one-year-old son, Everly. The proud parents have been sharing photos of their baby boy on social media, including a recent photo of him wearing a custom-made Spiderman onesie (complete with Kravitz’s initials ‘Zo’ on the back). While many fans were thrilled to see the family taking time off from their busy schedules to focus on their newborn son, some were skeptical about whether or not they were truly committing to each other.
In an interview with OK! Magazine, Pattinson addressed the nature of their relationship, “I think people are starting to see us as more than just an on-screen couple. They’re starting to see us as a real couple. That’s been a gradual thing, honestly. Even when we were dating and the press was saying, ‘Oh, these two crazy teenagers are going to run away and get married,’ we never really thought that would happen. It was more of a gradual thing. Now that we’re actually doing it, it feels more natural.”
While some fans are excited about the prospect of seeing the ‘Twilight’ couple interact with their son, others are worried that the time away from their busy schedules will only mean more drama for the stars.
On April 16, 2019, it was reported that Pattinson was considering ending his five-year hiatus from dating after months of teasing his fans with an epic Instagram post. The Instagram post, which shows Pattinson and Kravitz in bed together, was met with a combination of cheers and jeers from fans. While some were over the moon to see the couple back together, others were upset that they were only spending time together as a couple when the world was waiting for news of their wedding. In the comments section of the post, some fans even accused the duo of not being real in their relationship.
Less than a week later on April 22, 2019, it was announced that the couple had called it quits. In a statement to Entertainment Tonight, a representative for Pattinson said, “After much consideration and trying to do what’s right for both of them, the couple have decided to go their separate ways. No further information will be provided.” While the couple have since announced that they are still friends, their romance came to an end after five years.
Pattinson’s Solo Travel
Since the end of his relationship with Kravitz, Pattinson has been focusing on his solo travel. The ‘Twilight’ actor has been making the most of his newfound freedom by taking a road trip across the United States with his dog Olive. Along with a few friends, he has been documenting his travels on Instagram and Twitter.
While on the road, Pattinson has been sharing photo-ops with fans, including a recent selfie where he is posing with a dog print, an alligator, and the McDonald’s golden arches.
In an interview with Metro UK, Pattinson discussed some of the attractions he and his pals have visited while on the road trip. “We’ve been to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite, which is a stunning viewpoint. We’ve driven through the center of the Grand Canyon,” he said. “We’ve been to the top of Alcatraz, which gives you a panoramic view of San Francisco Bay. There are so many different places that you can go. It really is amazing.”
Pattinson’s solo travel has only fueled his popularity on social media platforms like Twitter, where he has 32.8 million followers. On the topic of going solo, Pattinson told TMZ, “It’s a very freeing experience. You’re not limited by time or anything. You can do whatever the hell you want.”
While some fans are excited about the prospect of seeing their favorite celebs go on tour without having to worry about tickets or accommodations, others are worried that the time away from the spotlight will only mean more drama for the stars.
