Robert Pattinson and FKA twigs really are engaged!
Dry those tears, Twi-Hards, because it's true: In less than 8 months, the 28-year-old actor and 27-year-old singer met, fell in love and got engaged. It happened in a flash, right? But the signs have been there from the get-go. So, in honor of R.Pattz and Twigs' eventual "I do's," let's take a look back at a timeline of their whirlwind romance.
August 2014: Rob and the British singer (real name: Tahliah Barnett) are spotted together for the first time, hanging out in New York City with mutual friend Tom Sturridge. We later learn that it was actually Rob's lifelong BFF and partner Sienna Miller who introduced him to Twigs.
September 2014: Rob and Twigs are spending a lot of time together, but a source tells E! News the two are "not quite" in a relationship.
October 2014: By now, Rob and Twigs are "officially an item," sources say. The "Video Girl" singer, who recently moved to L.A. from New York, is even staying at her new beau's home. An insider tells E! News they pair have "great chemistry" and are "quite goofy" together, adding, "Rob really likes her."
It's still early on, but already a source tells E! News things "are getting pretty serious" between Rob and Twigs.
November 2014: This is quite the 'round-the-world romance! Rob takes a whirlwind trip to France to get in some QT with Twigs, who's in the midst of promoting her album LP1 across Europe. She flies back to L.A. when she can, too, in order to spend time with her man.
On Nov. 8, Rob flies to New York City for Twigs' sold-out show at Terminal 5, where he presents her with a dozen red roses! He also attends her concert at Warsaw in Brooklyn, and afterwards, the two are spotted getting cozy at Twigs' after-party at Miss Lily 7A Rum Bar.
December 2014: Rob gives Twigs a promise ring! It's not quite an engagement ring, but it's certainly making his commitment to this relationship clear. Another big indicator things are heading towards "I do"? Twigs meets the Pattinsons! Indeed, a source tells E! News that Rob introduced his ladylove to mom and dad while they were both back home in London per the holidays. "They absolutely loved her," a source tells E! News of the meeting. "It went so well. Rob's family has always been supportive of him and they thought they were great together."
January 2015: Twigs' tour starts back up again on Jan. 22, but until then, she's living with Rob in L.A. in his new home in the hills. In fact, the twosome are spotted going furniture shopping together—presumably looking for some new items to make this house into a home.
Around this time, Twigs gives a rare interview about her personal life to The Guardian, admitting that she struggles with paparazzi attention that comes with dating "the man that I love." As she told USA Today in late-2014, though, the bad that comes with Rob's celebrity status is "worth it."
February 2015: Scheduling isn't always easy, but they find ways to see each other. Like, for example, when Rob joins Twigs at the 2015 Brit Awards. She walks the carpet solo, yes, but she meets up with her boyfriend inside London's O2 arena. There, she and Rob are spotted getting pretty cozy!
March 2015: Twigs is pregnant (in her "Glass & Patron" music video!) and keeping busy with her tour, but she and R.Pattz are still going strong.

April 2015: Here we go! In an interview with Vulture published on April 1, T-Pain (yes, T-Pain) accidentally slips it in that "ol' Patty" and Twigs are engaged! "I don't know if she wanted anybody to know that," the rapper adds.
He later backtracks on that, claiming this engagement reveal was actually an April Fools' Day prank. But, sources confirm to E! News that T-Pain wasn't joking: Rob and Twigs really are engaged!
Congratulations, Rob and Twigs! Let's hope T-Pain's TMI moment didn't get him dis-invited from what will surely be a lovely wedding!
