A New Twilight Baby’s in the World, But You Barely Knew About the Pregnancy
What is up with the semi-surprising YA star babies? The same week The Hunger Games‘ Jena 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.”
Take a walk down Twilight memory lane… with the cast’s biggest scandals:
The Cheating Scandal Heard 'round the World
In 2012, much to the dismay of dedicated Twilight fans, Kristen Stewart was caught, on camera, getting cozy with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, while she was still dating Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson.
After the pictures were released, she issued a public statement, saying, "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."
The kicker: The director was married, too — to KStew's SWATH mother, Liberty Ross! Fortunately, she found love again and just got remarried on Valentine's Day 2016.
