Taylor Lautner’s fiancée, Tay Dome, revealed that her childhood crush was none other than Lautner’s Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson. The Twilight saga was released between 2008 – 2012 and consists of five vampire-themed romance films based on the book series of the same name by Stephenie Myer. Lautner and Pattinson starred in the films as the two male protagonists, Jacob Black and Edward Cullen, respectively, while Kristen Stewart starred as the female lead, Bella Swan.
The films follow Bella as her relationship with Edward, an 108-year-old vampire, frequently propels her into danger. When her childhood friend, Jacob, turns out to be a werewolf imbued in the bitter feud between werewolves and vampires, she must choose between the two. The highly popular saga garnered up an enormous fanbase who tended to divide themselves based on their preference for Jacob or Edward. Those who preferred Jacob and wanted him and Bella together, called themselves Team Jacob, while those who preferred Edward became Team Edward. To this day, there’s no clear victor in the Team Edward vs. Team Jacob division, but both teams have proved to have some unexpected followers over the years.
In a new Instagram video, Lautner’s soon-to-be wife, Dome, revealed that she was Team Edward as a child. Dome jumped on a popular TikTok trend where one shares a picture of their childhood crush and then a picture of whom they ended up with. Hilariously, her childhood crush was none other than Lautner’s fellow Twilight co-star, Pattinson. Check out the video below:
With that hilarious video, Dome may very well have just won the trend. No one can quite compete with crushing on Pattinson as a child and ending up marrying Lautner later in life. It’s the perfect plot twist summarized in one video. Meanwhile, Lautner doesn’t seem to mind that his future wife was once Team Edward, since she’s clearly Team Jacob now. Lautner commented on Dome’s video stating, “bout time I won something.” His quote is a funny reference to how Bella chose Edward over Jacob. While he may not have succeeded against Edward in winning over Bella, he did ultimately manage to win over Dome.
Dome’s video shows that even though it has been a decade since the Twilight saga ended, it still remains popular today as many reminisce about its prevalence in their childhoods. Even Lautner’s own fiancée had an opinion on Team Edward vs. Team Jacob. The hilarious video also captures the fun-loving nature of Lautner and Dome’s relationship. That the two can joke about Dome’s childhood crush and put a funny spin on Lautner’s Twilight history is especially heartwarming. However, the fact that even Lautner’s own fiancé was Team Edward might just tip the scale in Edward’s favor in the decade-old Twilight debate.
