Emma Watson has always been one to keep her dating life very private.
But it’s now been revealed the Harry Potter star, who has previously referred to herself as ‘self-partnered’, is dating Californian business owner Leo Alexander Robinton, and he’s even met her parents.
The Daily Mail published pictures of the actress, 30, kissing a mystery man outside Gail's bakery in Notting Hill, west London, last October.
But at the time a spokesman for Emma would not confirm anything: “I'm afraid I do not comment on speculation regarding Emma's private life,” they told the publication.
But now he has been identified as 30-year-old Leo, with a source claiming Emma has even introduced him to her parents, Jacqueline and Chris.
“Emma and Leo did everything in their power to keep their relationship private,” the insider said.
“After they were pictured kissing in October Leo removed himself from all social media in an attempt to protect their romance.”
Last year Emma was linked to fellow Harry Potter star Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy.
But Tom quashed the rumours in November, saying he was single, and even adopting the ‘self-partnered’ term.
“I think in this day and age it's not a necessity to be with someone just for the sake of being with someone, so I like the idea of self-partnering,” he said.
Before that the last relationship the public had any idea about was her two years with tech entrepreneur William "Mack" Knight.
But the pair split sometime in 2017, according to Page Six.
The Beauty and the Beast star has always tried to keep her private life out of the public space.
“I want to be consistent," she explained to Vanity Fair in February 2017.
“I can't talk about my boyfriend in an interview and then expect people not to take paparazzi pictures of me walking around outside my home. You can't have it both ways.”
“It took me a long time, but I’m very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered,” the activist told the publication, when talking about the pressures facing women in the run-up to turning 30.
She then clarified things further speaking to E!’s ‘The Rundown’ at the Little Women LA premiere.
“It’s much more about your relationship with yourself and the feeling of not somehow deficient in some way because you’re not with someone,” she said, admitting she was surprised at how much attention the “throwaway” comment had generated.
