It’s hard to keep up with celebrity couples — the line between professional and personal life becomes blurred as soon as photos of the two dressed romantically emerge.
Suki, a 31-year-old model and social media influencer, and her 28-year-old actor boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, have been an item since 2013 and have featured in a number of red-carpet events together. While the world was captivated by their relationship, the two kept their private life relatively quiet, with Pattinson rarely speaking about his exes and dating other women throughout their time together.
But just because they’ve been quiet doesn’t mean their romance has been low-profile. In fact, thanks to a number of candid interviews and a bit of luck, we know a lot about what has been happening behind the scenes of their relationship.
Here, we’ll explore the intriguing world of Suki and Robert Pattinson, including everything from their romantic history to what drives them as individuals.
A Brief History Of Suki And Robert Pattinson
The Suki and Robert Pattinson story started in 2013 when they first met on the set of his directorial debut, The Rover. Suki was initially hired to appear in the film as an extra, but became such an important part of the team that he was offered a role in the movie itself. The two began dating soon after and began publicly displaying their affection in September that year, when they were photographed holding hands while watching a sunset together.
Suki and Robert Pattinson were married in a private ceremony in Florence, Italy, in April 2014. The couple’s red-carpet and Instagram-worthy moments continued to appear regularly in the media, as did their affection for each other.
But it wasn’t until January 2018 that we really started to see the world through their eyes. That month, Suki’s rep confirmed to People that the couple were expecting their first child together. The news was met with delight by their followers, who flooded the couple’s social media platforms with congratulations.
Suki and Robert Pattinson’s baby boy was born in April 2018 and the family settled into their new home in London. The actor has since been photographed carrying his son while holding Suki by the waist. The picture, which was shared widely on social media, has since gone viral and launched thousands of memes and gifs.
While it may seem like the couple’s life is perfect, it’s actually been a bumpy road for the model. In a 2018 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Suki opened up about her struggles with anxiety and depression. “It’s like a full-blown pandora’s box of depression and anxiety,” she said. “It’s been a really hard time. I’ve been to a lot of counsellors and I’ve learned a lot, but I still struggle. I think it will be a lifelong adventure, this whole thing that is mental health.”
Are They Still An Item?
It’s fair to say that the world has changed a little since 2013, when Suki and Robert Pattinson first came on to our radar. Back then, they were just a cute celebrity couple with an adorable bond. But today, their story is far from over.
Just this week alone, we’ve seen pictures of the two enjoying a romantic sunset in Italy and Robert Pattinson posting a sweet picture of himself and Suki holding hands in London. While it’s nice to see these Instagram stories, they don’t exactly prove that the relationship is still going strong.
According to the latest reports, Robert Pattinson has begun to actively date other women. In a series of interviews, he’s spoken about the importance of maintaining healthy boundaries, while maintaining an intimate relationship with Suki.
“I love being married to Suki,” he said. “I’m not ready to commit to a long-term relationship, yet. I think I’ll always be happiest when I’m working on a project with a friend.”
But what about Suki? Does she still see Robert as her Prince Charming or has the world turned and she’s now looking for a serious relationship? It seems that’s precisely what she’s been doing too. After years of keeping their romance a secret from the press, the couple have opened up about their relationship, sharing numerous interviews and touching up photos on social media.
In a 2018 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Suki opened up about her mental health struggles and how she’s worked through them to become the strong, independent woman she is today. “I wanted to prove to myself that I could be strong and independent,” she said. “And the only way I could do that was to show up and work hard every day. It’s taken me a while to realise that it’s OK to be weak sometimes. You need to be the person who cares for yourself and you need to take good care of yourself. That’s what growing up means.”
It seems that Suki and Robert Pattinson’s journey to build a stable union has been a long and bumpy one, but they’ve certainly achieved what they set out to do. While it’s easy to be charmed by their on-screen chemistry and loving family, it’s actually their strength of character that has won the hearts of fans around the world.
