Twilight stars are keeping in touch

It seems Robert Pattinson is keen to keep in touch with Kristen Stewart – and her dogs.

The actor, 27, has started filming Queen Of The Desert in Morocco so Kristen, 23, is looking after their beloved pooches Bear, Bernie and Bailey while he’s away.

But R-Pattz isn’t missing out on spending time with the pets thanks to Skype.

Kristen and Rob Skyped for two hours before he left for Morocco,’ a friend of Kristen’s says.

Kristen knew Rob was really missing Bernie and Bear, so they all – meaning Rob, Kristen and all three dogs, even Bailey – had a Skype session.

Rob was talking to the dogs and telling them how much he loves them and was pretending to pet them through the computer screen.’

The Twilight stars – who split last May but were rumoured to have rekindled their romance in October – are said to be maintaining frequent contact despite being far apart.

Even though they haven’t seen each other, Kristen and Rob have been in touch on a regular basis,’ the source tells Hollywood Life.

It will be more difficult now that Rob’s in Morocco so they made sure to get time in together before he left.’
