The stars met while shooting the Twilight film franchise. Despite persistent rumours they were dating since the first movie hit screens in 2008, Robert only recently confirmed they are an item. The pair go to great lengths to keep their romance out of the spotlight, even taking different cars to events so they aren`t seen together.
However, the relationship is said to be hotting up, with Robert convinced he will be with Kristen forever. "He thinks she`s The One," a source told Us Weekly magazine. "He is head over heels in love with Kirsten. He dotes on her and is very protective of her."
Kristen, 20, likes to keep Robert on his toes by clinging to her independence. She still enjoys going out with friends and has warned him she will never be the kind of woman who begs to spend time with her lover.
Robert, 24, is more than happy with the arrangement, with both the stars telling friends how happy they are. "No matter what, they-ll always have a place in each other`s hearts, since they rose to fame at the same time," another source explained. "It`s something nobody else can understand."
