Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are getting a puppy for Christmas. The couple, who have been dating for a year since meeting on the set of The Amazing Spiderman, were spotted looking for a new dog together in a Beverly Hills pet store on Friday.
According to gossip website JustJared.com, the 24-year-old actress and her 29-year-old British boyfriend spent more than an hour browsing dogs in a shop called Spot but were undecided about which one to take home and left empty handed. Emma already has a small black and white dog of her own.
The couple has already made one big purchase together this year, a new home. They reportedly splashed out a plush new $2.5 million house in Beverly Hills, California last month. The four-bedroom property is said to be located in one of the most exclusive gated communities in the area and was once owned by the late actor Dudley Moore, according to real estate site RealEstalker.com. The sprawling bungalow boasts 3,862-square-foot of space and includes traditional features such as wood-beams, high ceilings and a brick fireplace.
Despite signing off on their new home, friends of the couple recently said they are in no rush to marry and are eager to focus on this careers. A source close to the actress said “There’s no rush to get engaged. They are both young and ambitious.” Another pal said “They just love spending time together. They are absolutely adorable together. They both seem to have their heads on straight . . . They are the most normal couple I have seen.”
For a long time Andrew and Emma refused to confirm their relationship in a bid to maintain some privacy.
Stone previously said “There’s such a great sense of comfort in knowing that the only thing you have control over is what you say. People can say and do all they want. If it never comes out of your own mouth, you still get to keep that semblance of what is sacred to you.”
