Robert Pattinson has the itch to be a dad.

The 29-year-old plays Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock in his upcoming role in the film Life. But can he see himself actually being a father?

“Definitely,” he tells German publication Joile (via Thinking of Rob).  “Although, I still do not know when.”

He continues, “I was so attracted by the role in Life. At my age, you do not get so many chances to play a father — and certainly not one who leaves his family in the lurch. Personally I imagine it different, of course.”

So what exactly does he imagine?

“Sure I will have a child who is totally cool and confident,” Pattinson gushes. “He or she will probably look at me every day and think… why is this guy such a funny, quirky oddball?”

But becoming a father is probably secondary to first becoming a husband – considering he’s reportedly engaged to FKA twigs.

Pattinson got down on one knee to his girlfriend of six months in April, but sources tell People magazine their wedding won’t happen anytime soon.

“[FKA twigs] can’t decide what wedding she’d like to have,” the insider says. “She talks about keeping it as real and low-key and then wants an elaborate glamorous Baroque affair. She was even talking at one stage about having a masked ball.”

Now that they’ve continue to push the date back, the couple wants it to be a bit larger than they had originally planned.

“It will now be bigger but how big? Nobody’s quite sure at this moment in time,” the source adds. “There’s no fixed [wedding] date but will probably be late in the year… autumn at the earliest.”
