Emma Watson’s boyfriend Leo Robinton and their relationship have been the talk of the town after the two were photographed hanging out recently on several occasions. The lovebirds had kept a low profile on their relationship until October 2019 when they were first seen together kissing in London.
Like Watson, Leo has been very tight-lipped about his friendship with the celebrity actress who is also famed for keeping her private life under wraps and shying away from discussions that revolve around the men she hangs out with. Despite Robinton’s determination to purposely keep his personal life and affair with Emma out of the public eye, the latter’s fans and paparazzi have continued to show so much interest in the man she’s been seeing lately. Who exactly is Watson’s hunky beau?
Leo Robinton Was Born Into A Well-to-do American Family In 1989
Leo Robinton was born to Michael Robinton and Mimi Robinton on the 23rd of October 1989, in the United States of America. He is currently 32 years old. Emma’s boyfriend comes from a white ethnic background and is an American by birth.
Leo was born and raised in the city of Palo Alto, California, in the United States. He comes from a large family – he has four siblings whose names are Charlie Robinton (his older brother), Daisy and Lily Robinton (his sisters), and Archer Robinton (his twin brother).
Updates on his parents, most of his siblings (including their age differences), and their whereabouts are difficult to come by at the moment. However, we can establish that one of his sisters, Daisy, is a cell & molecular biologist, storyteller, and strategist.
Leo Has Been In A Serious Relationship With Emma Watson For More Than One Year
Emma Watson’s dating life has always been a subject of interest right from her early days in the industry. Being a high-profile celebrity, she has been involved with several notable people in the past but none of them really lasted or even worked out.
Who doesn’t know that the actress cherishes her privacy more than any other thing? But things have not been the same since 2019 when she drew the attention of the public to herself after she was seen kissing a ‘mystery’ man in London – Leo hadn’t been identified by any news outlet at the time.
The public became convinced that something serious was going on between the two after they were seen together again in April 2020. Since then, the lovebirds have publicly been to several places together, not minding the rumour making the rounds about their friendship.

He Seems To Be Deeply In Love With Her And Not Ready To Leave Her Side Any Time Soon
Recently, Emma and Leo were seen together hanging out excitedly. They’ve proved that what they share together is way bigger than people’s opinions about them. They’ve been going strong since 2019 and we don’t see them going their separate ways anytime soon.
In May 2021, it was reported that the Harry Potter star was engaged to her beau and that her career has been dormant for a while now. Watson, in response, criticized the outlet that published the news, stating that she was not engaged to her boyfriend yet and that she wouldn’t hesitate to share any news about her personal life with the public.
Reports making the rounds have it that the English actress would like a long-term future with Leo Robinton even though she is not in a hurry to get engaged to him. The two are happy with the way things are moving between them right now.
The actress is also said to have introduced her boyfriend to her parents, showing how serious she really is about him. The lovebirds are expected to make things official at some point in the future.
Emma Watson’s Boyfriend Is One Year Older Than Her
While we are yet to establish the age differences between Leo and his siblings, it is no news that the American hunk is not as old as he looks. He is quite a young soul trapped in an older body. He is only one year older than his girlfriend, a fact most people do not know due to Leo’s much-older looks.
As mentioned earlier, he was born in 1989 while Emma was born on 15th April 1990 in Paris, France, to English parents Chris Watson and Jacqueline Luesby, who are lawyers by profession. The two have no problem with their small age gaps as they are more comfortable with the fact that they love each other so dearly and are in a flourishing relationship.
Robinton Is Yet To Publicly Open Up About Their Relationship
Watson’s fans are not just curious about the man she is seeing currently, they have also been itching to know how, when, and where exactly their paths crossed for the first time. Sadly, neither Emma nor Leo has considered it worthwhile to open up about how they got connected and we don’t see that happening any time soon because both of them do not naturally have innterest in the camera and media and Robinton once went the extra mile to prove it.
According to reports, the young man quickly went to his Instagram and other social media accounts to protect their privacy immediately after the news about his relationship with the actress went viral. Currently, his Instagram account is private.
Watson once admitted in an interview that her matchmaker’s friends like setting her up and that she is not a fan of dating apps. Well, she could have possibly met Leo through a mutual friend but hey, we are not so sure.
Emma’s Boyfriend Is An American Businessman With An Impressive Net Worth
Leo Robinton is a businessman who used to work for a Los Angeles-based company that legally deals in Cannabis. He is said to have resigned from the firm in June 2019, a couple of months before he met Watson.
It is not clear what he currently does for a living and what he is up to at the moment. Robinton may not be a well-known businessman but it is easy to tell that he has done well for himself, considering his age.
The young man reportedly has a net worth of $850,000, which he supposedly made from his business endeavor. It is not clear if he has other sources of income and how he plans to keep up with both his endeavors and relationship with the Harry Potter star, who revealed in a 2019 interview that she divides her time between New York City and London.
