A Twilight fan has finally revealed how Edward Cullen was able to impregnate Bella despite being a vampire ‘made of stone’.
Ten years since Breaking Dawn was first released, fans are still talking about one potential plot hole from the book and movie.
It was during the third instalment, vampire Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson) is able to impregnate Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart) despite having no blood running through his veins and being 'made of stone'.
Fans have spoken over the years saying that Edward's lack of blood flow should make him unable to impregnate Bella despite it happening during the last installment of the series.
In the world of Twilight, vampire women are unable to get pregnant because their body can not change to hold a fetus. But men are apparently able to get human women pregnant.
However, one Twilight superfan, Jenna Guillaume, who writes for Buzzfeed, decided break down how the pregnancy happened in the first place.
Taking to Buzzfeed, she wrote, 'You see, Stephenie Meyer got the question, "How did Edward get a boner and impregnate Bella?" so much when Breaking Dawn was released, she included the answer to it on her website.”
Stephenie first explained how vampire biology worked so people could understand the inner-working of their make-believe bodies.
Stephenie wrote that vampires are physically similar enough to their human origins to pass as humans under some and that their skin serves the same general purpose of protecting the body. However, the cells that make up their skin are not but hard and reflective like crystal.
The explanation then goes on to inform readers that between the cells is a liquid moving throughout the body similar to how blood moves through humans. But this liquid comes in the form of venom.
The venom, Stephenie writes, is what helps Edward impregnate Bella in the fictional book.
According to Stephenie, the normal reactions of arousal are still present in vampires, made possible by venom-related fluids that cause tissues to react similarly as they do to an influx of blood....
