Is Emma Watson gearing up to walk down the aisle with her boyfriend, Leo Robinton?! That seems to be the question on everyone’s minds after the Harry Potter star was spotted wearing a ring on that finger. So is she engaged? Well, we decided to investigate once and for all — here’s what we know.
Is Emma Watson Engaged To Leo Robinton?
The speculation first started after the brunette beauty was photographed out and about in Los Angeles, CA, earlier this week, and many people were quick to notice that she was rocking a silver band on her ring finger. She was accompanied by her beau for the outing, and they could be seen cuddling up and kissing in the pics. Her foot appeared to be hurt — she used a knee scooter to get around — but it’s unclear how the actress obtained the injury. According to reports, the lovebirds just returned from a pre-Valentine’s Day trip to Mexico, so it’s definitely possible that he popped the question there.
So is the couple getting married? Unfortunately, until they confirm or deny it themselves, it’s still hard to tell, but congratulations if they are engaged!
Who Even Is Emma Watson’s Boyfriend?
So who is Watson’s possible-future husband? Well, he’s actually a pretty private guy. He doesn’t have any social media, but The Sun reported that Robinton is a Los Angeles businessman who used to work for a company that specialized in legal cannabis there. He left his role in June 2019, before he met Watson.
What Do We Know About Their Relationship?
Watson and Robinton were first spotted together in late 2019. At the time, photographers caught them sharing in a big ol’ smooch, and the internet quickly went into a frenzy. But at the time, she insisted she wasn’t in a relationship.
“[I’m] not one specific person, but I’m going on dates,” she told British Vogue. “I never believed the whole ‘I’m happy single’ spiel. I was like, ‘This is totally spiel.’ It took me a long time, but I’m very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered.”
Since then, they have been photographed together numerous times, and get this — Daily Mail recently claimed that Watson has introduced him to her lawyer parents, and that they’re now living together.
“Emma and Leo did everything in their power to keep their relationship private,” a source revealed. “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.”
And according to Life & Style, her family and friends definitely approve of the relationship.
“He’s handsome and smart and all their mutual friends approve of the romance. He’s definitely a keeper,” an insider told them. “She has tried to keep her dating life as private as possible. Leo seems to be doing everything in his power to help her achieve that goal.”
Who Else Has Emma Watson Been Linked To?
Before she started dating Robinton, many people were convinced that the 30-year-old was in a secret relationship with her HP costar Tom Felton. They stayed close for years after the movies wrapped, and get this — they even jetted off to Africa together in August 2019.

And a few months later, the actor could not stop gushing over the brunette beauty in an interview with Daily Mail.
“She’s an incredibly smart and lovely young lady,” he told them. “It’s always nice to bump into her, see her at the beach, or over dinner, or whatever. It’s always nice to bump into each other and slightly reminisce about old times but also about looking forward to the future.”
To add fuel to the fire, when asked if he could see them dating, Grint told Entertainment Tonight, “Yeah I could. There was always something. There was a little bit of a spark.” OMG.

Before that, she briefly dated Glee star Chord Overstreet for a few months in 2018. Before that, she was in a two-year relationship with a tech entrepreneur named William ‘Mack’ Knight, but they kept their relationship pretty much out of the spotlight. And when asked why she wanted to keep her love life private, Watson explained to Vanity Fair, “I can’t talk about my boyfriend in an interview. I’ve noticed, in Hollywood, who you’re dating gets tied up into your film promotion and becomes part of the performance and the circus. I would hate anyone that I were with to feel like they were in any way part of a show or an act.”
She was also linked to actor Roberto Aguire in 2015. In January 2014, she was spotted kissing fellow Oxford student Matthew Janney. They dated for 10 months, and when they split, the star’s rep told E! News that their “unrelenting work schedule” were to blame and that they ended things “amicably.”
She dated another Oxford student named Will Adamowicz in 2012. There were also rumors that she and her Perks Of Being a Wallflower costar Johnny Simmons were in a relationship after they filmed the flick in 2011. She also reportedly dated George Craig, Rafael Cebrián, Jay Barrymore, Francis Boulle, Angus Willoughby and Tom Ducker over the years.
