Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson Talk Kids -- Are They Ready for Their Own? (PHOTOS)

Robert Pattinson Kristen StewartAlright, don't get TOO excited. Yes, Kristen and Rob talked kids at The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 press conference recently. Rob loves them. Kristen even expressed wanting some of her own. But let's allow them to get used to their second dog -- and, you know, each other for a little while longer before we push the parenting idea on them.

Oh, what am I talking about? Let's go ahead and think about it. What ... if ...??? Sigh ...

Well, while we had Rob and Kristen in the room the other day, we asked them about kids (oh yes, we did). And we got some whopper answers from both of them, as well as from the Twilight series author Stephenie Meyer, who got to watch them play Renesmee's parents on set long enough to have an opinion about it.

Well, Rob and Kristen aren't parents (yet), but how well did they play them in the Twilight finale? Stephenie Meyer, mom of three, was impressed:

For people who had never been parents, they were impressive. Before we even got to set, Kristen had already put herself in that mindset. She and Mackenzie [Foy] had a really great relationship. She would go to Bill [Condon] all the time and say, "I should be looking at Renesmee in this scene. I should be focused. I need to be oriented around her."

Kristen was the mother bear. She was such a protective, all-consumed kind of mother. I thought that came through really well. And Rob, the easy-going dad ... Whenever they were together in scene, he and Mackenzie were laughing about something. It was really, really sweet.

Sounds promising, huh? But let's see what Rob himself had to say about stepping into the fatherhood role for Breaking Dawn 2.

I quite like working with kids and animals, which everyone says you shouldn't do, because it makes you feel like you’re not acting -- as soon as you have someone who’s providing stuff to react to. Especially working with a baby. It’s great. I would say, put a dog or a baby in every scene -- everyone’s gonna do better ... And if they’re not better, just shoot the dog [laughs].

Um, what the??? Hmmm, I'm not sure Rob is really there yet. What do you think? He followed that doozy up by saying, "They've got some good baby actors." Oh, Rob.

Kristen, on the other hand, had some serious passion in those green eyes of hers when she talked about playing mama Bella and about motherhood in general:

It was one of my favorite things about the story from Day 1. There was never enough about [motherhood] in the script for me, and luckily Stephenie has been really involved in this last one especially. She was on set every day. It's something that we were really together about. It was one aspect of [Bella] that I was most excited to play. Vampires have a slightly more animalistic nature. Perfect for it. What better way to show THAT. I have a great relationship with my mom and she can be a bit feral when it comes to being a mom. I think that's what it is.

Wow, she liked it. She really liked it. So is she ready to be a mom? And if so, when? "I can't wait to be a mom ..." Kristen said (!!!). "But I can wait."

Well said. Well said.

Are you excited to see Kristen and Rob play parents in Breaking Dawn 2?

    It sounds like rob was just nervous about the question

    I'm sure Rob was nervous about it because the media/journalists tend to dissect & analyze every single word that comes out of their mouths so he didn't want to say anything that was too forthcoming and have the world speculate "Is it talking about Kristen? if so, WHEN?!" and create this whole scenario. But being at the ages they are at, they're still young enough (Kristen, at least) to have a long way to go. Rob, being 26 (I think?), he's probably under more pressure to have kids at that age so he's not too old of a dad.

    I don't think that you can be too old to be a dad, I think older dads are actually better bc they've settled down a little more than most younger guys. I think that young guy akwardness is what Rob was kind of living. Some women are the same way but Kristen obviously 'gets' beign a mom even if she isn't one. She's right, being a mom connects you with your instincts (or atleast it did for me) and it makes you more of the human animal in a good way.

    many people say they thik rob is ready to be a parent and kirsten isn't. I think they both are ready. I think the only reason why they say kirsten isn't is because of the whole cheating bit. I think thats the only reason why they say she isn't ready.

      I agree with, April, they would make pretty babies, but want to see a wedding first. I know it is very common now, to have babies first, but I'm, from a different era, when we got married, before any babies. I just hope, that they remain a couple,long after, Twilight. wedding

    It looks like Kristen can't have kids. The way she said 'I can't wait to have kids! But I can wait.' If she wasn't ready shed say something like 'I want kids someday in the future maybe, but not right now' it's like she's putting something off. And my suspicions that she's had a kid are rising.. :/
