How Suki Waterhouse found love after Bradley Cooper romance as ‘public humiliation’ left star with ‘colossal heartbreak’

AFTER suffering deep heartache on both sides, it looks like Suki Waterhouse and Robert Pattinson have finally found their happily ever after.

The 31-year-old model shocked fans on Sunday when she announced her pregnancy during a performance at Mexico’s City’s Corona Capital.

Dazzling from head to toe in a pink glittery dress, she excitedly told the crowd: “I’m wearing something sparkly today because I thought it might distract you from something else that’s going on.

“I’m not sure it’s working,” she joked, while opening her feather-trimmed coat to reveal her blossoming baby bump.

Before the announcement, a source told ET that the A-list pair – who have dated for more than five years – were expecting their first child.

“She is so happy, excited, and appreciative of this experience. Suki and Rob are adorable together,” the source said.

Suki’s big news may come as a blow to 48-year-old actor Bradley Cooper, who dated the model for two years from 2013 to 2015.

“They remain friends but they both want different things right now,” an insider said at the time when they split. 

Suki was left devastated when shortly after their separation The Hangover Star was linked to Russian supermodel Irina Shayk, 37.

She later wrote a song called Melrose Meltdown, which some fans speculated revealed her pain at at seeing Bradley at the Oscars the year they broke up. One lyric reads: “Watching you work the room, hoping one day we’re married.”

Without confirming who the song is about, Suki said: “I was in the middle of a break-up, in the middle of the Oscars, running away from security covered in diamonds. “What fun. I look back on my 22-year-old self and think, ‘What were you doing?”

After releasing an album last year, she revealed her “colossal heartbreak” over a past relationship which led to “public humiliation, a lot of shame”.

“I was kind of depressed for a while,” she told The Sunday Times Style magazine.

“It stuck around for a long time. I think it was just the break-up and also just being in my twenties and in the f***ing trenches.”

Like most women who go through heartbreak, it’s not nice comparing yourself to their new partner and Suki confessed being compared to a supermodel was tough.

“You constantly read about how much more beautiful the new girlfriend is or whatever,” she continued.

“That sounds silly, but when you’re actually the one that’s heartbroken, it’s pretty rough.”

Although Cooper has always stayed relatively tight-lipped about his relationship with Shayk, the pair welcomed their daughter, Lea, in March 2017. 

Sadly, they split two years later after four years of dating but remain on good terms and continue to co-parent their beloved daughter. 

Before Cooper, Suki dated musician Miles Kane from 2011 until 2013 and was linked to Star Wars actor Diego Luna from 2016 until 2017.

Twilight cheating scandal

Like Suki, R-Patz also suffered a very high-profile break up with his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart, 33.

The pair filmed five Twilight movies together before their shock split in 2013.

He was left ‘distraught beyond belief’ after she was snapped with married Snow White director Rupert Sanders, 52, in July 2012.

The shocking photographs captured Stewart locked in a series of steamy encounters with Sanders. 

Kristen said the scandal ‘lit her universe on fire’ and released a public apology to Rob shortly after the affair was exposed.

It read: “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob.”

Kristen hoped to patch things up but it was not to be. 

He eventually moved on with British singer FKA Twigs, 35, after meeting her through mutual friends in 2014. 

But it wasn’t easy being in a relationship with Twilight’s leading man. FKA Twigs later told how she suffered horrendous racist abuse from fans who didn’t approve of their relationship. 

The pair reportedly got engaged but they never publicly confirmed it, with the exception of Pattinson saying that he’s “kind of” engaged on The Howard Stern Show in July 2017.

But after three years of dating with plans to tie the knot, they broke up. Sources told People that the door was open for reconciliation, but “timing” was a key factor in the split.

Pattinson and Suki reportedly met through mutual friends in 2018. Since then, their relationship has yielded a slew of sweet public statements, romantic date and engagement rumours.

“I’m always incredibly excited when I see his name pop up [on my phone],” she told The Sunday Times magazine. “Or even a text, and I think he feels the same about me. “We’ve always got so much to say and I find him hilarious.” 

Notoriously private Pattison revealed why he keeps their relationship so close to his chest in April 2019, saying “If you let people in, it devalues what love is.

But it looks like the pair have thrown caution to the wind with their very public pregnancy announcement. 

While they haven’t revealed any more details, fans took to Twitter, now known as X, to say: “That baby just won the gene pool lottery.”

And we couldn’t agree more.
