Jackson Rathbone is a dad! OMG! We literally just read his tweet which gushed, “Thank you ALL for the love & support! Sheila & I couldn’t be happier to have such a beautiful, healthy baby boy, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI.” A quick follow-up was also tweeted, which said, “Feeling so blessed! What an amazing day! Love and respect, Bone Daddy.” His spokesperson has also released a statement givng us more details. “Jackson Rathbone’s baby boy, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI, was born today at 9:43 a.m.,” it reads. Little baby Jackson also weighed in at 8 pounds and 11 ounces. How adorable is that? If you got any kiddie vampire jokes, let us hear them, because our brains are scrambled about the fact that this has actually happened. C’mon … it’s Jackson! And he’s a dad!
We haven’t really heard much from or about him since we published the news that his girlfriend, burlesque dancer Sheila Hafsadi was pregnant. Supposed burlesque dancer, that is. They met while he was touring with his band “100 Monkeys.” We’re super happy for the new family and are sending some major love to Jackson! We think he’s going to make an amazing father, and can’t wait to see photographs of their little boy. We’re also waiting to read the congratulatory messages that are most likely due very soon from his Twilight cast-mates.
