What’s news to you may not be news to your friends, but it’s still good to know the latest happenings in the world of celebrities. That’s what Keeping Up With The Kardashians is for. This is especially important for celebrities’ children who may not always get the opportunity to hear about life inside the prestigious circles in which their parents move. Thankfully, the spotlight isn’t always on them, so there are plenty of stories where Robert Pattinson doesn’t have to pretend to be famous.
Who are Robert Pattinson’s parents, Katherine and David?
Well, they’re both attorneys and they met while working for the same law firm. After a short time, they decided to pursue a life together with their children. In 2015, they celebrated the birth of their son, Henry. Just three years later, in 2018, they welcomed a daughter, Elizabeth. Finally, in 2021, they became parents for the second time when they adopted a baby boy, Alfred. What’s amazing is that Henry and Elizabeth are twins and they share the same birthday. Additionally, David and Katherine’s parents, Ken and Betty, were also adopted.
So, if you thought your family was unique, you’re in for a surprise when you meet the Patten family. Not only do they share the same birthday but they also have an extra set of twins and a set of triplets. When asked about their incredibly busy schedule, Ken, Betty, and David each replied with their favorite quote: “There are only two places we always go in this world: home and work. We work hard, play hard, and don’t take ourselves too seriously. We want to make sure our children have a good quality of life, so we’ll always be there for them. Work hard, play hard, and have fun!”
Henry: The Model’s Son
It’s no secret that Robert Pattinson’s parents are animal lovers, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that their son is quite the celebrity himself when it comes to models. In fact, not only does he have a famous parent, but he’s also the brother of popular singer and actress Lily Allen.
After graduating from Oxford Brookes with a degree in History and Philosophy, Pattinson moved to New York City. There, he became a founding member of The Hundreds, a luxury goods brand aimed at men. From New York, the model traveled the world for work, appearing in magazines like Vogue and ELLE. He also graced the covers of prestigious publications like GQ and Rolling Stone. Additionally, he was chosen as the face of the brand’s prestigious “One in a Million” limited-edition fragrance. It was later revealed that the fragrance was a takeoff on Ralph Lauren’s famous “Polka Dot” fragrance. For his part, Robert Pattinson was honored to lend his face to the brand and he even appeared in a handful of ads and magazines to promote their products.
In 2011, the model married fashion designer Kate Bosworth. She has a stepbrother named Jake, who is also the father of their first child, a daughter, Mia. The newlyweds resided in New York City and enjoyed a low profile, private life until 2018, when they announced their separation. It was later revealed that Kate had been battling depression for years and had attempted suicide on several occasions. Unfortunately, her family did not know about her struggle until after her death in March 2018.
Now that Kate is no longer in the picture, it’s safe to say that Robert Pattinson’s life is pretty exciting. He’s now in a stable relationship with movie producer and filmmaker Lizzy Caplan. The two have been dating for several years and became engaged in December 2019. The pair already has a daughter together, born in 2018. They named her Sophia Grace after their parents.
With so much going on in his life, it’s no wonder that Robert Pattinson hasn’t been spotted at the beach much over the years. He doesn’t seem to enjoy being in the public eye much, which is why he rarely makes appearances anymore. It just goes to show you never really know what’s going on behind the scenes with a celebrity. You have no idea what kind of crazy situations they may be faced with on a daily basis. It’s always good to know these things, though. It may not seem like it at first, but celebrities are still just people. They’re still doing the same thing you’re doing, eating lunch, going to work, and getting ready for date night. It’s just that they have the luxury of choosing whose spotlight they want to be in.
Lily Allen: The Pop Singer’s Daughter
Not only has Robert Pattinson’s mother, Katherine, aced the beauty world, but his sister, Lily, has also taken the stage. The singer grew up in a household surrounded by music and attended the Royal Academy of Music in London, where she studied cello. Before she was famous, she worked as a backing singer for Elton John and George Michael. She also lent her voice to video games like Grand Theft Auto and The Simpsons.
It was after she collaborated with Elton John on his music video for “Don’t Let Me Down,” which featured a performance by both of them, that Lily decided to pursue a career in music. She released her debut solo album in 2004 and toured the world, performing at venues like the Royal Albert Hall, selling out shows and receiving rave reviews. She’s since released six more solo albums and has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music, including Jay-Z, Pharrell Williams, and Adele.
While Lily Allen’s music career was going smoothly, Robert Pattinson’s own was taking a backseat. He appeared in one music video as a dancer and then began focusing more on his appearance. He lost a considerable amount of weight and got some plastic surgery. Before long, he was on the cover of magazines and his Instagram was jam-packed with bikini pictures. In 2019, at the age of 40, the model married his longtime girlfriend, the photographer Kate Bosworth. The two had been dating for several years and became engaged in December 2019. Kate has a stepbrother named Jake, who is also the father of their first child, a daughter, Mia. The newlyweds reside in a 16th-century manor in Oxfordshire.
Kate Bosworth: The Model’s Girlfriend
Another woman caught up in Robert Pattinson’s whirlwind is Kate Bosworth. The model’s girlfriend became a fan of Kate after seeing her on Instagram and then hired her to be a part of her wedding planning team. The two have been friends for years and bonded over their shared love for clothes and accessories. They also share a passion for exploring different parts of Europe. It was on one of these adventures, in 2009, that they had their first encounter with an elephant. At the time, they were staying at the Shangri-La Hotel in Bangkok and saw one dragging its broken leg behind it as it made its way toward its pen. The two had previously stayed at the hotel and were woken up in the middle of the night by the sound of the creature’s deep moan. They went to investigate and saw the poor thing chained up and injured.
It was after this experience that Kate decided to become an animal rights activist. She traveled the world speaking out against animal cruelty and signed on to become an ambassador for the Born Free Foundation. The model supported her endeavors, appearing in a public service announcement for the foundation. It was a small but meaningful moment for both of them. While Kate doesn’t usually get the spotlight, she’s still someone’s girlfriend, so it’s good to know what she’s doing and what types of projects she’s working on. Like her friend, she also loves to travel, visiting countries like France and Italy for fun. In 2020, she will be accompanying the model at the Paris Fashion Week. It’s been a busy few years for Kate, who turns 45 years old this year.
David’s Family Tree
It’s probably no secret that Robert Pattinson’s family has some pretty impressive lineage. Not only does he have famous parents but he’s also the brother of English singer-songwriter and actress Lily Allen. As previously mentioned, David is also the father of model-turned-actress Kate Bosworth. He also has a stepbrother named Jake, who is the father of two girls, Daisy and Violet, and a son named Harrison. It was Harrison, the son, who encouraged Kate to follow in her father’s footsteps and pursue a career in law. David attended the exclusive University of Oxford and then Harvard Law School. He joined a prestigious law firm, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meidl and Arpels. While there, he worked on some high profile celebrity cases, including a class action lawsuit against Dolce & Arpels in which he successfully argued for the plaintiffs. He is currently an associate partner at the firm.
