Robie Uniacke is a British businessman and a mathematical researcher, but he is mostly famous for being the boyfriend of Rosamund Pike, a famous Hollywood actress. However, his life is worth taking a closer look at, so let’s find out some details about his age, children, net worth and more.
Early life and family
Robie was born in 1961, though the precise date of his birth is unavailable. He’s tried to keep his private life low-key, and hasn’t mention any details about his birthday, parents, siblings, etc. Almost nothing is known about his childhood, except that he was born in Great Britain and holds British nationality.
Robie matriculated from Eton College in Windsor, England in 1983. However, there is no information about his degree, but he is well known as having a strong interest inmathematics.
Little is known about Robie’s early career as his life has only been observed by media since 2009 when he started dating famous Hollywood actress, Rosamund Pike. It is known that Robie is a businessman and mathematical researcher. In 2008 he was in charge of three companies as the Daily Mail UK reported.
In 2010 he established an IT consultancy company called “Pale Fire Ltd.”, however, in 2016 his company was declared bankrupt and closed, with Uniake accused of tax-related offences. Nothing else is known about his further career as he never announced any updates on his new job. Authoritative sources also claim he tried himself as a technical specialist, and acted as a camera trainee in the “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” movie (2005) and also was a focus puller at the backstage of the short movie called “Underground” (2009). Nevertheless, there is no information about his further career steps in the camera and electrical department.
Personal life, current wife Rosamund Pike
Robie had two marriages before he met Rosamund Pike. His first wife Emma Howard was 30 when Robie married her at the age of 22, in 1983. They both fell into drug addiction and their marriage failed in 1988, leaving them both in the rehabilitation centers to recover. It is worth mentioning that Emma was the daughter of the late Earl of Carlisle, though her titled family couldn’t save her from her heroin addiction. Emma gave birth to their son named Robie Jonjo.
After that Robie married interior designer Rose Batstone, when she was only 24 years old, and they welcomed three children during their marriage: Hector, Olive and Florence. It is known that Olive is a close friend of Daniel Radcliffe, the star of the legendary movie series about Harry Potter.
Robie Jonjo also lived with them, and in her interview with “A Fashionable Life” magazine in 2015 Rose shared she brought him up as her own child and was happy she had a kid who was almost a grown-up. Rose and Robie divorced after almost a decade of living together. Rose is now married to a film producer David Heyman and lives in a Victorian mansion in Pimlico, London.
After his second divorce, Robie met Rosamund, and she later told in her interview to “The Glamour UK” in 2012 that she fell in love with his ‘wit, intelligence and irreverence’. They have two sons, Solo (6 May 2012) and Atom (born on 2 December 2014). Robie and Rosamund are still not married, as they both consider the act of marriage a simple formality, and that they enjoy spending time together without any official ceremonies – there are no rumors about any controversies or break-ups.
Who is Rosamund Pike?
Rosamund Pike was born on 27 January 1979 in London, Great Britain, the only child of opera singers Julian Pike and Caroline Friend. While she was still studying at Badminton School, she played the lead in “Romeo and Juliet” at the National Youth Theatre, and an agent who was seeking young talent noticed her, and helped her with her first steps in the acting career. After graduating from Wadham College, Oxford in 2001, Rosamund dedicated all her time to her acting activities. The whole world got to know her through David Fincher’s movie “Gone Girl” (2014) in which Rosamund played Amy Dunne, and was nominated for Oscar for her starring in the movie, and got the Saturn award, leaving as runners-up such stars as Anne Hathaway for her work in “Interstellar” and Angelina Jolie in “Maleficent”.
As for her personal life, Rosamund had at least to love affairs which are known in the media. She dated the director Joe Wright, and they were even going to marry, but broke-up eventually apparently after arguing over the wedding invitations. Earlier she had a relationship with English actor, Simon Woods for two years, when Simon confessed that he was gay! As for now, Rosamund seems happy with Robie – ‘The idea that you go for an older man because you think you’re less likely to be left by him, that’s the biggest pile of crap ever. I have the good fortune of living with a very fearless person, which has been wonderful. It checks me,’ Rosamund shared in one of her interviews to the Daily UK.

Hobbies and interesting facts
Uniacke likes traveling and uses any opportunity to visit new places. He is also very interested in everything related to photography. Robie speaks fluent Mandarin, and is well-known to be a Sinophile. Rosamund admitted he speaks Chinese to their children, and skips English every time it is possible, so when they visited Beijing, China, their four-year-old son Solo could translate everything he heard there to his mother, who is not so strong in Chinese.
Social media presence
Robie is not at all active on social media platforms – he doesn’t have any Instagram, Twitter or Facebook accounts. His partner Rosamund Pike has only recently joined the Instagram community, creating her profile at the beginning of 2019.
As for now, she has only 16,000 subscribers as she still doesn’t post very frequently. However, her fan page on Instagram which was created and is now moderated by one of her German fans from Berlin, has over 156,000 subscribers, and her Facebook profile is followed by over 150,000 people.
Appearance, clothing style
Robie has hazel eyes and sometimes wears glasses. He has brown hair – he doesn’t care much about his hairstyle, often leaving his hair looking messy. He is 5ft 9ins (1.75m) tall and weighs around 163lbs (74kgs). His vital statistics are not available, though one can see that he is very slim. As for his clothing style, he often wears classical suits and white shirts.
According to authoritative sources, Robie had several serious problems with his net worth. He was declared by “The Daily Mail UK” as failing to pay taxes for his IT company “Pale Fire Ltd”; to be precise, he owed £179,602 (around $224,619 as of 2019) to HMRC. As a mathematical researcher, Robie may earn around $50,000 per year, but his net worth is estimated at less than $1 million. As for Robie’s partner, Rosamund Pike, her net worth is estimated to be around $9 million, as she works hard as an actress, and gets contracts for roles in movies several times a year, so her net worth would seem likely to grow.
