RPatz has his family’s blessing to tie the knot with singer FKA Twigs. According to a source who spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, they believe that she’s much easier to get along with than his ex KStew.

Robert Pattinson, 28, is obviously thrilled to be engaged to his sweetheart FKA Twigs, 27. And his family couldn’t be happier – especially because their relationship with his ex-girlfriend and Twilight movie co-star Kristen Stewart, 24, was a flop, a source has revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywooodLife.com.

Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson: His Family Happy He’s Engaged To FKA Twigs

“Robert’s family are very supportive of his engagement to Twigs,” the insider explained. “They think she’s great for him, and are happy that it wasn’t Kristen in the end because they didn’t have the same feeling for her they have for Twigs.”

The heartthrob actor was reportedly left “devastated” in 2012 after his then-girlfriend Kristen was caught canoodling with her married Snow White And The Huntsmen director, Rupert Sanders.

Now feeling lucky in love, Rob recently popped the question to Twigs after five months of dating. “They’re very pleased that Rob found someone after what Kristen put him through,” the source added.

Romance blossomed for Rob and Kristen in 2009, following the debut of their first Twilight film a year earlier – which delighted their fans.

However, it seems Robert’s family members weren’t as smitten as he was. In fact, they found it difficult to connect with the actress – a stark contrast to their relationship with his new love, Twigs, the source said.

“They think she’s great for him, and are happy that it wasn’t Kristen in the end because they didn’t have the same feeling for her they have for Twigs,” the insider said, adding, “It’s no secret that Robert’s sisters Lizzy and Victoria found it especially difficult to communicate with Kristen and build a relationship with her. However, Twigs is far more open and easy to get on with. “

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Robert’s family’s approval important?
