Suki Waterhouse, aged 31, has officially confirmed her pregnancy and is eagerly awaiting the arrival of her first child with her boyfriend, Robert Pattinson. The announcement took place during her appearance at the Corona Capital 2023 Music Festival in Mexico City on Sunday, November 19. Addressing the swirling pregnancy rumors, she humorously remarked, “I thought I’d wear something sparkly to distract you from something else I’ve got going on,” playfully gesturing towards her baby bump, as captured in social media footage. She added with a touch of wit, “I’m not sure it’s working.”
Accentuating her pregnancy, the brief and glittering dress embraced her expanding abdomen. Earlier, her baby bump had triggered speculation about her pregnancy during public outings with the 37-year-old Pattinson. The confirmation of their relationship came from Us Weekly in August 2018, with an exclusive source revealing that the couple had been “dating for months.” The insider further shared that the Twilight star and the model had a longstanding acquaintance, having “known each other and been around each other for a long time.”
In April 2019, Pattinson publicly discussed his relationship with Waterhouse for the first time, revealing his inclination to maintain their romance with utmost privacy. In an interview with The Sunday Times, he expressed reluctance, stating, “Do I have to [talk about her]?” He emphasized his preference for keeping his love life away from the spotlight, explaining that allowing others into such personal aspects can diminish the true value of love.
He went on to say, “I can’t fathom how someone can stroll down the street holding hands, and it’s the same as when I do it, with a hundred people snapping photos. The distinction between when you’re performing and when you’re not will eventually blur, and you’ll go completely mad.” Despite the couple igniting engagement rumors in January 2020 when Waterhouse was seen wearing a gold ring on her left hand, neither of them explicitly confirmed nor denied their relationship status.
In May 2020, Pattinson appeared to open up about his relationship with Waterhouse during an interview with GQ. He noted that he was residing “with his girlfriend” in an apartment provided by the Batman production team during a production hiatus. While the couple has chosen to maintain a level of privacy about their relationship, Pattinson offered fans a glimpse into their connection in February 2022, revealing that Waterhouse became emotional watching him in The Batman.
“It was [Waterhouse’s] reaction that truly shifted everything for me because, I’m quite certain she’s not typically a fan of superhero movies,” revealed the Devil All the Time actor during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! He continued, “Seeing her completely engrossed in it, holding my hand, and gently touching her face with a tear – I couldn’t believe it!” In December 2022, the couple marked a milestone by making their inaugural red carpet appearance together at the Dior pre-fall 2023 menswear show in Egypt.
