Robie Uniacke is a British businessman and mathematical researcher, but he is best known for being the boyfriend of Rosamund Pike, a famous Hollywood actress. However, his life deserves a closer look, so let’s find out some details about his age, children, net worth and more.
Early life and family
Robie was born in 1961, although the exact date of his birth is not available. He tried to keep his private life low-key and didn’t mention any details about his birthday, parents, siblings, etc. Almost nothing is known about his childhood except that he was born in Britain and holds British citizenship.
Robie graduated from Eton College in Windsor, England in 1983. However, there is no information about his degree, but he is well known for his strong interest in mathematics.
Little is known about Robie’s early career as his life has only been observed by the media since 2009 when he started dating famous Hollywood actress Rosamund Pike. We know that Robie is a businessman and a researcher in mathematics. In 2008, he was the head of three companies, as reported by the Daily Mail UK.
In 2010, he set up an IT consulting firm called “Pale Fire Ltd.”, but in 2016 his company was declared bankrupt and shut down, with Uniake being charged with tax offences. Nothing else is known about his future career as he never announced any updates on his new job. Authoritative sources also claim that he tried his hand as a technical specialist and acted as a camera trainee in the film “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” (2005) and was also a behind-the-scenes focus shooter in the short film titled “Underground” (2009). Nevertheless, there is no information about his next career steps in the camera and electrical department.
Personal life, current wife Rosamund Pike
Robie had two marriages before meeting Rosamund Pike. His first wife Emma Howard was 30 when Robie married her aged 22, in 1983. They both fell into drug addiction and their marriage broke down in 1988, leaving them both in rehabilitation centers to recover. It should be mentioned that Emma was the daughter of the late Earl of Carlisle, although her titled family could not 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 just 24, and they had three children during their marriage: Hector, Olive and Florence. Olive is known to be close friends with Daniel Radcliffe, the star of the legendary Harry Potter film series.
Robie Jonjo also lived with them, and in her 2015 interview with “A Fashionable Life” magazine, Rose shared that she raised him as her own child and was happy to have a child who was almost an adult. Rose and Robie divorced after almost a decade together. Rose is now married to film producer David Heyman and lives in a Victorian mansion in Pimlico, London.
After her second divorce, Robie met Rosamund, and she later said in her 2012 interview with ‘The Glamor UK’ that she fell in love with his “wit, intelligence and irreverence”. They have two sons, Solo (May 6, 2012) and Atom (born December 2, 2014). Robie and Rosamund are still unmarried, as they both consider the marriage record a mere formality, and enjoy spending time together without any formal ceremony – there are no rumors of any controversies or breakups.
Who is Rosamund Pike?
Rosamund Pike was born on January 27, 1979 in London, Great Britain, the only child of opera singers Julian Pike and Caroline Friend. While still studying badminton school, she played the lead role in “Romeo and Juliet” at the National Youth Theater, and an agent looking for young talent noticed her and helped her take her first steps in acting. After graduating from Wadham College, Oxford in 2001, Rosamund devoted all her time to her acting pursuits. The whole world knew her through David Fincher’s film “Gone Girl” (2014) in which Rosamund played Amy Dunne, and was nominated for an Oscar for her role in the film, and obtained the Saturn Prize, leaving stars like Anne Hathaway for her work in “Interstellar” and Angelina Jolie in “Maleficent” as finalists.
As for her personal life, Rosamund had to at least love well-known stories in the media. She dated director Joe Wright, and they were even going to get married, but eventually broke up after apparently falling out over wedding invitations. Previously, she had a relationship with English actor Simon Woods for two years, when Simon confessed he was gay! For now, Rosamund seems happy with Robie – ‘The idea of you choosing an older man because you think he’s less likely to leave you, that’s the biggest load of bullshit ever. I’m lucky to live with a very fearless person, which has been wonderful. It checks me out,’ Rosamund shared in one of her Daily UK interviews.

Hobbies and interesting facts
Uniacke loves to travel and takes every opportunity to visit new places. He is also very interested in everything related to photography. Robie is fluent in Mandarin and is well known to be a Sinophile. Rosamund admitted that he spoke Chinese to their children and skipped English whenever possible. So when they visited Beijing, China, their four-year-old son, Solo, was able to translate everything he heard there to his mother, who is not that good at Chinese.
Presence on social networks
Robie is not active on social media platforms at all – he does not have an Instagram, Twitter or Facebook account. His girlfriend Rosamund Pike only recently joined the Instagram community, creating her profile in early 2019.
As of now, she only has 16,000 subscribers because she still doesn’t post very often. However, his Instagram fan page, created and now run by one of his German fans from Berlin, has over 156,000 followers and his Facebook profile is followed by over 150,000 people.
Appearance, style of dress
Robie has hazel eyes and sometimes wears glasses. He has brown hair – he doesn’t care much about his hairstyle, often leaving his hair messy. He is 1.75 m (5 ft 9 in) tall and weighs about 74 kg (163 lb). His vital statistics are not available, but it can be seen that he is very thin. As for his clothing style, he often wears classic suits and white shirts.

According to authoritative sources, Robie has had several serious issues with his net worth. He was declared by “The Daily Mail UK” as having paid no tax for his computer company “Pale Fire Ltd”; to be precise, he owed £179,602 (about $224,619 in 2019) to HMRC. As a math researcher, Robie can earn around $50,000 a year, but his net worth is estimated to be 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 movie roles several times a year, so her net worth is expected to increase.
