Twilight actor, 27-year-old Jackson Rathbone V and his 24-year-old girlfriend, burlesque dancer, Sheila Hatsadi welcomed their first child together, son, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI at 9:43 a.m. this Thursday. Rathbone’s rep confirmed the birth to Gossip Cop.
Rathbone’s rep told Us Weekly last February that his girlfriend and he were “thrilled and excited to be expecting their first child.”
Rathbone is best known for his role as Jasper Hale in the Twilight Saga and has recently been reported as admitting that he would be interested in having his role continued if the stories were to continue beyond the fifth edition.
Before starring in Twilight, Rathbone was cast in “Disney 411,” “The O.C.,” “Close to Home” and “Beautiful People.” He met girlfriend Sheila Hatsadi during a tour stop with his band 100 Monkeys last October according to eonline.com.
Wikipedia notes that Rathbone is a distant relative of Civil War general Stonewall Jackson. Rathbone can boast therefore that he has managed to preserve the legacy or his famous ancestor with the birth of Jackson Rathbone VI.
The Guardian congratulates the couple.
