20th November 2023 – (London) The 31-year-old model and singer, surprised fans at the Corona Capital Festival in Mexico on Sunday with a major announcement. Taking the stage in a glittery pink minidress, feathery coat, fringe-trimmed boots, and glittery tights, Waterhouse captivated the crowd before revealing her baby bump.
In a fan-captured video shared on X (formerly Twitter), the audience erupted in cheers as Waterhouse playfully opened her coat to showcase her growing belly. “I’m extra sparkly today because I thought it might distract you from something else that’s going on,” she exclaimed before proceeding with her scheduled performance.
Waterhouse has been in a relationship with actor Robert Pattinson for over five years. Speculation about their romance began in July 2018 when a source told PEOPLE that they were dating after being spotted together in London, engaging in public displays of affection.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the couple decided to live together in London while Pattinson filmed his titular superhero role in the highly anticipated film, The Batman. Observers noted that their relationship seemed to be progressing rapidly during this time. “They are very loved-up,” an insider shared in July 2020. “They haven’t been together that long. But everything seems on the fast track. They are always laughing and smiling at each other.”
Waterhouse’s reaction to Pattinson’s role in The Batman further solidified their bond. Pattinson revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in February that seeing her captivated by the film had a profound impact on him. “I’m pretty sure she’s not normally into watching superhero movies,” he admitted. “And just seeing that it was capturing her attention the entire time, and then she held my hand and touched it [to her face] and I could feel a little tear. And I was like, ‘No way!'”
In a revealing interview with The Sunday Times in February 2023, Waterhouse expressed her astonishment at being in such a happy long-term relationship. She emphasized that the couple never goes more than two months without seeing each other. “I’m shocked that I’m so happy with someone for nearly five years,” she confessed. “I had two days off the other day, and it was like, no question I’m going back to see him.”
Waterhouse also shared her excitement whenever Pattinson’s name appears on her phone. “I think he feels the same about me,” she added. “We’ve always got so much to say, and I find him hilarious.”
The couple made their first public appearance together at the Met Gala in May, where they turned heads on the red carpet. Waterhouse stunned in a sheer floral dress, while Pattinson looked dashing in a custom blue suit featuring a sweeping pleated skirt.
