Yes, Robert Pattinson and Emma Watson are an item and got engaged this year. What is the latest news on their relationship? We dive into details. Plus, find out what this means for you as a fan.
Pattinson’s Big Surprise
The year 2020 was a big one for Robert Pattinson. Not only did he star in the mega-hit James Bond movie Kingsman: The Second Season, but he also got engaged to British actress Emma Watson. This came as a complete shock to fans, who had not expected the couple to make their relationship public.
While the press were still gossiping about their engagement, they both kept quiet about their relationship. In fact, Emma even went on a short break from filming to enjoy some romantic time with her boyfriend. The couple made their engagement and subsequent marriage official in a romantic ceremony in London on May 24, 2020.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from the happy couple, but since then they have been making headlines for all the right reasons. In June, they revealed that they are already thinking about expanding their family. The actor revealed that they are going to be adding a daughter to their family in the coming months. They also plan on welcoming a son in the next few years. This news came as a shock to fans who had hoped that the couple would put off their wedding day until they could enjoy their newlywed life with Emma’s daughter, Suki.
What Is Emma Watson’s Connection To Harry Potter?
Emma Watson first rose to fame as Minerva McGonagall in the Harry Potter film franchise. The actress portrayed the fierce professor in all eight of the Harry Potter movies, except the final film, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.
While fans were very happy to see her back on the big screen, they were a little surprised to learn that she was a teacher at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The actress revealed that she took a year off to be with her husband and focused on raising her family. While raising four children alone might be challenging, Emma said that she enjoys her role as a mother. She has also been open about her struggles with postpartum depression, which she said made her feel “like a monster.”
Robert Pattinson’s Favorite Harry Potter Character
When it comes to his favorite Harry Potter character, it’s a real toss up between Professor Severus Snape and Richard Harris’s Bellatrix Lestrange. Pattinson has admitted that he is a big fan of Harris and named his favorite character after him. When it comes to Snape though, the actor says he has “always admired his restraint.” Even more so since his character was more often against the odds than anyone else’s. Besides, the actor feels that Snape is “one of the most interesting characters study because you never know what he’s thinking or feeling. The more you know about Snape, the more you respect him.”
Snape Or Lestrange?
Emma’s Bellatrix Lestrange might be the only thing standing between us and chaos. While the Avengers have gone their separate ways since the end of Avengers: Endgame, director Joe Russo has teased that the Black Widow and Ironman will reunite in the future. Since the end of that movie, fans have been questioning when, or if, they will ever see the former teammates again. While it might be nice to see these two old friends get back together, it’s more likely that we will be seeing a lot more of Emma’s dangerous and scheming character going forward.
Watson’s Iconic Role
While everyone was shocked at the revelation of Emma Watson’s engagement, it was not her acting choices that garnered her fame, but rather her activism and campaigns. In 2019, she became an UN Women’s Advocate for equality and rights, and launched a worldwide #SheReads initiative to encourage girls to read.
As part of that campaign, she dressed as Joy and gathered her readings for Christmas. She also posed for Vogue India in an intimate moment with her family, including her dogs, Bekka and Fred. In 2020, all these photos and more will be on display in the upcoming solo exhibition, ‘Emma?’ at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The show will commemorate the tenth anniversary of the actress’ eponymous clothing brand and feature clothing and accessories from throughout her career. This will be the first solo exhibition that the V&A have held in thirty years, and it will include items from all ten of the Harry Potter films, not just the first two. It is scheduled to open on September 30, 2020, and will be on display until January 2021.
Who Is Suki Watson?
Suki is the actress’ first child with husband Robert Pattinson. The couple welcomed their daughter in June 2020, almost two years after their engagement. Suki was named after Emma’s late mother, Suki Parker, and she is the first grandchild of Parker and Richard Harris, the actor who portrayed her father in six of the Harry Potter films. While the couple are incredibly proud of Suki, they have also maintained that they will not interfere in her education or the raising of her daughter, even though they are both parents.
Is This A Rumor Or Truth?
Although most fans would say that they do not believe the rumors, a few have been graced with the honor of being at the forefront of a breaking news story. In December 2019, Entertainment Tonight said that a source close to the actress had hinted that she was in a relationship with her co-star, Tom Hanks. The news organization said that the claim was ‘‘as plausible as Ned Flanders and John Potter meeting at a Potter party’’ and that ‘‘relationship rumors are common place” when it comes to celebrities.’’ While this might be true, things are quite different when it comes to actually confirming the rumors. To this day, neither actor has ever publicly stated that they are in a relationship. Many fans have stuck by Emma and Robert, hoping against hope that their famous fair isle will one day return.
The lack of a solid confirmation has not stopped fans from speculating, however. In July 2020, it was revealed that the couple had hired a wedding planner who had already booked their wedding venue and band. The wedding date has not yet been set, but it will be held at the Chapel of St. George in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead in England. This comes as a blow to Harry Potter fans hoping that the couple would choose to wed at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as it has been the venue for many an Engagement and Wedding over the years.
What Does This Mean For You As A Fan?
Since Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson are an item, it means that you will soon no longer be allowed to mention her maiden name in vain. The actress adopted the stage name of “Emma” instead of “Emma Watson” after marrying the actor in 2020. This is also an indication that the couple are going to be making their relationship a lot more public. While most fans will be happy to see the couple grow their family, others might be a little bit envious of their privacy. After spending almost two years in hiding, will they get the honeymoon surprise that fans have been dreaming of for so long?
At this point, it is quite clear that we will not know everything about Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson’s relationship, and that is exactly what makes it so interesting. With so much speculation, it is great to see that the public will still get to learn something new about one of the most interesting celebrity couples. It is also refreshing to see that they have maintained their privacy over the years and have always kept fans waiting in the loop about their relationship. Let’s just hope that this is the last time that we have to speculate about what might or might not be going on in the lives of these two incredible actors.
