Rob’s new film, Water for Elephants, is casting five children to play his and Reese Witherspoon’s kids and he DID say he’s always wanted to be a young dad…

British heartthrob Robert Pattinson recently admitted that he wants to be a young dad, and now his dream of starting a family is finally coming true! The fanblog for his new film, Water For Elephants, has confirmed that producers are currently casting five kids to play Rob and Reese Witherspoon’s kids!

“I contacted [the casting director] in charge of ‘background or extra’ casting on WFE, as to what children’s roles they were casting for as part of the Tennessee shoot. She said that they were casting children ages 8-15, boys and girls, to fill five roles as Jacob and Marlena’s children,” the blog reports.

In Water for Elephants, Rob plays a Depression-era circus veterinarian who falls madly in love with Marlena (Reese), a performer with the traveling Benzinzi Brothers show. Although Reese, 32, already finished shooting her part, Rob will be working through July 26.

According to the fanblog, Rob’s five children will work on the set for approximately three days. Hopefully he satiates his desire to become a young dad – because his GF Kristen has already said she’s totally not ready to have babies!
