A New Twilight Baby’s in the World, But You Barely Knew About the Pregnancy

By  | 

What is up with the semi-surprising YA star babies? The same week The Hunger GamesJena Malone announced her somewhat unexpected new bundle of joy, Twilight‘s Jackson Rathbone did the same… and the public only got wind of the pregnancy yesterday!

While the 31-year-old actor and his 29-year-old wife, Sheila Hafsadi, haven’t exactly kept the news of their child a secret — if you look back at both of their Instagram pages, they were more than clear about their second bun in the oven — news outlets only broke the details of the bebe bump yesterday morning — the same day the child was born.

The Twilight alum, who portrayed Jasper Cullen in all five of the franchise’s films, posted the following pictures on Instagram:

According to the two-time dad — he already has a son, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI, whom Nikki Reed plays godmother to — the baby girl, named Presley Bowie Rathbone, was born at 8:38am on May 31, weighing in at 8 pounds and 2 ounces. He said, “Thanx everyone for the lovely reception of our daughter, Presley. Time to grab some shut eye, while she does.”
