As of 2022, Robert Sheehan (@rozzymikes) does not appear to have a partner and is single. The 34-year-old Irish actor hasn't been spotted out in public with a significant other in a long time, and there's no trace of a relationship on his Instagram page as well. This means that he is definitely a private person and keeps his personal life secret.
However, he was previously in a relationship with actress, Sofia Boutella. Sofia is French-Algerian and enjoys modeling and dancing in addition to acting. After meeting on the Jet Trash set in Goa, India, in March 2014, Robert and Sofia began dating. The relationship with Sofia on set, according to Sheehan, was daydreamy.
But when they returned to England, they realized that their busy schedules would make it difficult for them to maintain their relationship. Fortunately, Robert and Sofia managed to progress their careers while keeping their love together.
The relationship, however, ultimately failed at some point in 2018. Although Robert Sheehan didn't specifically state the reason for the split in his interview with Hot Press, he seemed to imply that the couple's competing schedules were a contributing factor. He further added that Sofia (@sofisia7) is a magnificent person and really is. Moreover, he claimed that they're still in touch and love each other as friends.
Robert Sheehan has not since dated anybody, at least publicly. Based on his character in Netflix's The Umbrella Academy, many viewers speculated that he might be gay or any LGBT persona.
Robert admitted in the Hot Press interview that as a teen, he struggled with his sexuality. Although he self-identified as heterosexual, he was curious about if guys would be willing to work for him. He experimented after downing a few drinks to get confidence. He didn't like the experience, though. He explained,
“I had a couple of experiences when I was younger with dudes where I tried it, experimented, to see if it did anything for me. And it didn’t… I had a few pints, I was quite tipsy – they loosened me up and then I had pop. I bowed out after a couple of minutes.”
Robert Sheehan self-identifies as heterosexual, but other aspects of his life, including style, are not influenced by his sexuality. Robert has created some classic outfits for the red carpet, and he pulls them off by not letting gender labels limit his clothing choices.
Robert Sheehan seems to be single for now, however, he dreams of starting a family in the future. He told Hot Press that his desire to have a few children won't be hampered by his career. He said,
“Kick out a few babies – oh, yeah. I wouldn’t miss out on that. A career is momentary and that’s why it’s fun… But no f**king way – there’s no way I’m not starting a family.”
