Emma Watson was a fan favourite ever since she first burst onto our screens in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone back back in 2001. From The Perks of Being a Wallflower to Little Women Watson has had a pretty illustrious acting career, but she has always tended to keep her relationships and personal life fairly private. However, in October 2019 pictures of Watson and her rumoured new boyfriend were released and the pair have reportedly been going strong ever since.

Here's a look back at Emma and Leo's relationship, starting with the most recent point of interest and then back to the very beginning...

February 2021: Emma Watson begins trending on Twitter after a Mail Online reports claims that she has "given up acting" and is taking time out of her career to spend time with her boyfriend of 18 months, Leo Robinton. The report also alludes to rumours that Emma and Leo are engaged.

However, her manager has since clarified that rumours about her career aren't true. Speaking out in a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Jason Weinberg explained, "Emma's social media accounts are dormant but her career isn't."

Emma's publicist didn't say anything about Emma and Leo however, and did not deny the rumours of an engagement.

Here's the rest of Emma and Leo's relationship timeline:

October 2019: Rumours about the relationship began in October 2019 when the Mail Online published pictures of Emma kissing a "mystery man" while out for lunch in London. It was the first time that the couple were spotted together and people still have no idea who the man was.

In November the December issue of Vogue was published in which she described herself as single. Since the interview would likely have been conducted three months before it was published we can assume that Emma and Leo got together sometime between August and November 2019.

April 2020: Six months after the pictures were first published the "mystery man" was revealed to be 32-year-old Leo Robinton. The Sun reported that Robinton is a Los Angeles-based businessman who worked at a legal cannabis company before leaving that role in June 2019.

Robinton reportedly deleted all of his social media accounts after the images of him and Emma kissing were published, however fans quickly dug up a picture of Leo with his sister Daisy at the Washinton D.C. Women's March in 2017.

Later that month a source spoke to the Mail Online about the relationship, saying that it had got serious between the pair.

"Emma introduced Leo to her parents, she was really serious about him. They went for a meal together back in December at The Ivy restaurant in St John's Wood not long after Emma and Leo first met."
