Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson had been planning to have a baby together before she was caught cheating on him.
The 22-year-old actress and the 26-year-old actor - who have been together for four years - had reportedly been talking about starting a family before she wrecked their plans by having a fling with her married Snow White and the Huntsman
director Rupert Sanders.
A source close to the pair - who met on the set of the first Twilight Saga
movie - said: "They had been talking about having a baby together once Twilight
ended, which is what makes this so extra-painful. Kristen knew how badly Rob wanted to start a family, and it was a subject that had dominated their conversations in recent months.
"Rob would be a great father, and having a baby would probably have brought them even closer together."
Although Kristen and Rob have not released a statement on the future of their relationship, Kristen fears there is no way back for them and their baby dreams are over.
The source continued to the National Enquirer magazine: "Kristen fears she'll never have the chance to get Rob back, and that their baby dreams are now totally shattered. Kristen feels so terrible, this is truly a nightmare for her, but there's nothing she can do to turn back time.
"If Rob takes her back at this point it will be a miracle, but she knows she only has herself to blame."
Kristen admitted she had cheated on Robert with Rupert - who has two children, Skyla, seven, and five-year-old Tennyson, with wife Liberty Ross - after pictures emerged of them kissing in a car and released a statement saying how sorry she was.
