Fans of Twilight will be thrilled to hear that one of the film's hunky actors has finally produced some very human offspring. (And no, Rob and Kristen didn't have a baby together -- yet.) Jackson Rathbone is the one who's officially a dad, as he just welcomed his first child with his girlfriend, Sheila Hafsadi. (He plays hunky vampire Jasper in the flicks, FYI, just in case you were scratching your head a little bit.) The couple announced the pregnancy back in February and are no doubt over the moon about their new little bundle.
The baby boy arrived yesterday and weighed in at a healthy 8 pounds, 11 ounces.
When it comes to his name, the newborn's parents went the traditional route, because the little boy shares his name with his famous father -- Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI. This little guy obviously comes from a long line of Rathbones, because proud dad Jackson's first name is also Monroe, and he has a "V" on the end of his moniker.
This was the perfect time for little Monroe to arrive, since Jackson is finally done filming Breaking Dawn Part 2. It would've been kind of tough to get any bonding time with a newborn while shooting was underway -- and he probably would've looked a little freaky to the baby, with his pasty white skin & eerie contact lenses.
Congrats to Jackson & Sheila -- it's definitely exciting to finally have a Twilight baby arrive!
Does your baby share his/her name with a family member?
