Robert Pattinson's taking his girlfriend FKA Twigs to his parents in West London worked out better than they expected. There were reports that Robert's family would be unwelcoming of FKA Twigs during their Christmas escapade, but new reports say the family loved her and how fun she is compared with Kristen Stewart.

Daily Mail UK reports that FKA Twigs impressed Robert Pattinson's family when she spent time with them in posh Barnes, West London for Christmas. They liked her so much that they cannot help but compare her with Kristen Stewart, Robert's ex-girlfriend and co-star in "Twilight." According to a family friend, "FKA is not as clean-cut .. but that makes her more fun, and Robert can get very serious." After this said blissful Christmas trip, the pair was spotted together on New Year's Eve at a popular London hotspot, The Russet.

Although the new report is still unconfirmed, it corroborates an early report by Hollywood Life that FKA Twigs is increasingly capturing the hearts of her boyfriend's family members, including his sisters. A source exclusively told the entertainment site that Rob's family "adores" FKA twigs. In addition, his sisters especially approve of FKA Twigs because her devotion to their brother can be seen.

"They love how easygoing she is and how she really brings out the best in Rob--he's never been so at peace and just blissful," the source explained. The sisters also reportedly love FKA Twigs more because she has a more open personality compared with Kristen Stewart, who they reportedly described as "reserved" and "closed off." The sisters said FKA Twigs goes out of her way to get to know them and is engaging with their parents.

FKA Twigs, for her part, already shared how much she values Robert Pattinson, even though she's not used to living so much in the public eye. She told The Guardian that when she looked uncomfortable dealing with the paps, it just means she really was. However, she added that Robert Pattinson is worth all the trouble that the paparazzi bring because he's that special. She said the happiness she feels with Robert makes all the discomfort fade.
