Robert Pattinson’s baby announcement inspires hilarious Twilight connections
Robert Pattinson recently revealed he was going to have a baby and now Twilight fans are making a ton of jokes about it.
Robert Pattinson, best known for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise, recently revealed he’s having a baby with musician Suki Waterhouse.
Fans were unsurprisingly happy for the couple as this marks the couple’s first child together, but fans also started to make jokes about the bundle of joy.
Pattinson’s Twilight character famously had one of the most talked about babies in cinema history, so Twilight fans were more than eager to connect both events together.
Twilight fans joke connects Pattinson’s baby to franchise lore
When the news broke that Pattinson and Waterhouse were having their first baby, Twilight fans took to Twitter to make a ton of jokes.
In the last book/movie of the franchise, Edward Cullen (Pattinson) had a half-human, half-vampire with his wife Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart). Once the baby, Renesmee, was born, Bella’s werewolf friend/second love interest Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) imprinted on her, meaning he was bound to love and protect her forever.
That piece of lore never sat right with the majority of the Twilight fandom as Jacob was a full adult when he “fell in love” with Renesmee, a mere baby, and have questioned author Stephenie Meyer on her decision to include that in her story.
So naturally, when Pattinson’s baby news was announced, Twilight fans jumped into making the funniest jokes about his future child.
