There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

The power of Edward compels you!
In a featurette for the Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga DVD box set, Nikki Reed discussed the creepiness of Chuckesmee, the name given to the spooky animatronic child that was supposed to be Edward and Bella's child, Renesmee.
Thank the Volturi they went with a CGI Renesmee in the end because this puppet is straight out of Valley of the Dolls.
Nikki dished about the puppet and the complications that arose during filming:
”I understand the theory behind it, to have this creature that does all the hand movements and stuff. I’m holding a 60-pound mechanical doll and me and the doll have to move our bodies at the same time. It’s really difficult for me.”
You're right Nikki. This thing truly is a creature. SRSLY we half expect its head to spin and for it to start vomiting every time we watch the featurette clip!
