Rosamund Pike lives a life far from the limelight when it comes to her family. She shares two sons with her long-term partner, Robie Uniacke, named Solo and Atom. Here’s an in-depth look at Rosamund’s life as a mother to two young boys.
Rosamund’s Relationship with Robie Uniacke
Pike has been in a relationship with Uniacke since 2009. Despite being together for years, the couple has decided not to marry — a choice Pike finds ‘infinitely more right.‘ Uniacke, 61, is a businessman and mathematician who was barred from being a business director for four years due to a series of offenses.
Uniacke has a past that includes two previous marriages and a total of four children from those relationships: Robie Jonjo Uniacke, Hector, Olive, and Florence.
Who is Solo and Atom Uniacke?
Solo Uniacke, born in 2012, is Rosamund’s first child. She wanted to have her second child after filming ‘Gone Girl.’ Her second son, Atom, arrived in late 2014. Pike chose to give birth at home, as confirmed by US Weekly.
Rosamund and her partner Robie chose the names Solo and Atom for their sons because these names symbolize characteristics that they value, specifically strength and independence. When Atom was four years old, Pike humorously noted on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ that her sons make ‘quite a naughty team.’
Both Solo and Atom are fluent in Mandarin, thanks to their father Uniacke’s efforts to teach them the language. During the COVID-19 lockdown, Pike took the opportunity to catch up on her Mandarin skills, with Solo and Atom serving as her tutors.
Pike’s Insights on Parenting
In a 2014 interview with Glamour, Pike shared how motherhood has given her a fresh perspective on her acting career. She explained:
“With children, you spend so much time reexperiencing the world as a child experiences it, and that has a nourishing effect on your imagination — in my job, imagination is key.”
She has also shared some hilarious stories about her children.
As Pike told Kimmel, during a summer trip in a Czech town famous for its bachelorette parties, her sons were fascinated by the adults they encountered. They even imitated the drunk party-goers for a time afterward. Pike also humorously recounted her sons’ reactions to transitioning from flavored to adult toothpaste.
Pike has kept her children away from the limelight and never posted their pictures on social media.
