He’s already got some on-screen experience playing a dad in the final Twilight installment, but, spoiler alert: One of Robert Pattinson‘s next real-life roles may be father, too.

The actor recently proposed to indie singer FKA twigs, PEOPLE confirmed April 1, and it turns out his bride-to-be fancies starting a family.

“She really wants kids,” a source close to Pattinson says of fellow Brit twigs (née Tahliah Barnett) in the new issue of PEOPLE.

The couple began dating in September, and their romance escalated quickly: Pattinson traveled with the artist on her European tour in the fall, the pair were spotted getting cozy during Miami’s Art Basel fair in December, and a source told PEOPLE last month they were living together.

While the pair are eyeing late-summer nuptials (and a casual pub wedding if twigs has her way!), plans are “not definite,” the source says.
