Emma Watson—your favorite Hermione Granger–playing, feminist icon—is in love, y’all! Emma has quietly been in a relationship with her boyfriend, Leo Robinton, for about 18 months now, and things are getting pretty darn serious between them…like, Emma potentially giving up acting, getting married, and preparing to start a family serious. She’s all grown up. 😭

Since it’s possible that Emma juuuuust might be engaged, it’s time to do a lil deep dive into who Leo Robinton is to see if he’s actually worthy of being Emma’s fiancé. There’s lots of ground to cover, so put on your thinking caps!

Leo was first linked to Emma in 2019.

Everyone was just minding their business in October 2019, until suddenly—pics of Emma kissing Leo publicly (who at the time was simply called a mystery man) during a day out in London hit the web—she was claiming the heck outta him! (You can peep the pics here.)

Leo has no social media accounts.

After those kissing pics hit the web, the Daily Mail revealed Leo’s identity in April 2020. Naturally, the extra attention started spooking Leo out, and the outlet reported that he promptly deleted his Instagram and social media accounts to protect his and Emma’s privacy—respectable!

Leo is a businessman.

According to The Sun, Leo is allegedly a 31-year-old Los Angeles–based businessman who used to work for a company that specialized in legal cannabis. Before meeting Emma, he left his role in June 2019.

Leo comes from a pretty big family.

Leo reportedly has two older sisters named Daisy and Lily, an older brother named Charlie, and—surprise—a twin brother named Archer! His sister Daisy—who is a cell and molecular biologist, casual—tweeted a pic of them together at the Washington, D.C. Women’s March back in 2017 (supporting women’s rights, we love to see it!). “Proud of my little bro for trekking across the country to support women’s rights @TheresLeo #EmpowerWomen #WomensMarchDC,” she wrote.

Leo and Emma are “serious.”

Back in April, a source told the Daily Mail that “Emma and Leo did everything in their power to keep their relationship private,” adding that at that point in their relationship, Leo had already met Emma’s parents. “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.”

Leo ~may~ have popped the question to Emma.

BIIIIIG emphasis on “may.” Earlier this week, the Daily Mail posted a pretty vague report that said Emma plans to “step back from acting to spend time with rumored fiancé Leo Robinton.” According to their source, “Emma has gone underground; she is settling down with Leo. They’re lying low. Maybe she wants a family.” (It’s also worth noting that Emma was spotted wearing a band on her wedding finger at the beginning of February, which you can see here.)

Since we don’t exactly know who this source even is, please take these Leo and Emma engagement rumors with a hefty grain of salt. Stay! Tuned!
