Rumors of Suki Waterhouse have been circulating for months. But now, the British musician and actor has finally confirmed all our suspicions: she is expecting her first child with longtime partner Robert Pattinson.
The Daisy Jones & The Six star shared the exciting news with fans at the Corona Capital Festival in Mexico on Sunday, November 19. As she addressed the crowd to talk about her glittery outfit, she revealed what inspired it.
“I thought I’d wear something sparkly today because I thought it might distract you from something else I’ve got going on,” she said during her set, gesturing at her growing belly under a feathery jacket. “I’m not sure if it’s working,” she quipped, eliciting a raucous cheer from the crowd.

The news comes after Waterhouse was photographed with Pattinson sporting what looked to be a burgeoning baby bump. No due date has been announced, but it’s an exciting time given that it’ll be their first foray into parenthood for both of them.
Waterhouse, 31, and Pattinson, 37, have been dating for over five years. Though not much is known about their beginnings, they were first photographed looking loved-up in July 2018.
The notoriously private couple only went red carpet official in December last year at the Dior Fall 2023 menswear show.
In a 2019 interview with the Sunday Times, Pattinson discussed why they prefer to keep things more secretive. “If you let people in, it devalues what love is. If a stranger on the street asked you about your relationship, you’d think it extremely rude,” he told the publication. “If you put up a wall, it ends up better.
“I can’t understand how someone can walk down the street holding hands, and it’s the same as when I do it, and a hundred people are taking your photo. The line between when you’re performing and when you’re not will eventually get washed away, and you’ll go completely mad.”
