From flirting to falling head over heels to making wedding and honeymoon plans, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have faithfully mirrored Edward and Bella's hot and heavy love affair arc in the Twilight film series. Now, as if ripped straight from the franchise's upcoming final installment, the young lovers are going to become parents, OK! has learned exclusively.
"Breaking Dawn 2 changed them and made them realize it's something they're ready for sooner and they thought. They've known for a long time that they wanted kids, but always thought of it as something they would do down the line — but then they shot this movie and they started imagining being parents together," a source closes to the couple tells OK!. "The movie really awoke something in both of them."
Both method actors, Rob and Kristen say they went really deep into their characters for the movie, exploring every nuance of being parents. These sentiments clearly carried over into their own lives, sources confirm.
“In rehearsals, they would talk a lot about having a baby and all of their feelings about what sort of parents they’d like to be,” an on-set source tells OK!. “And then when it came time to shoot, they just went for it and really became her parents, even though the girl playing their daughter, Mackenzie Foy, is only 10 years younger than Kristen. Bill [Condon, the director] was one of the first to notice how maternal Kristen is. And it wasn’t just Kristen — Rob was so protective of Mackenzie. He totally jumped into the daddy role.”
The pair are so eager to create a family of their own together that they are telling their closest friends they wouldn’t mind if Kristen became pregnant now, even before the wedding that they are planning for later this year. Happily, many of their family members are fine with that idea, too.
