Good news, Twihards … one of your beloved actors in The Twilight Saga film franchise is about to spawn! Don’t worry, it’s not Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner … today we learn that Jackson Rathbone, the man who plays Jasper Hale Cullen, and his burlesque dancing girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi are expecting their first child together! Rathbone’s publicist has confirmed the happy news so … we’ve got the first real life Twibaby on the way!
Twilight’s Jackson Rathbone and his girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi will become first-time parents later this year, Rathbone’s rep confirms to Us Weekly. The couple “is thrilled and excited to be expecting their first child,” his rep says. According to a source, burlesque dancer Hafsadi, 24 — who met the actor-musician, 27, during a tour stop with his band 100 Monkeys — is five months pregnant. Rathbone has already been preparing to go on daddy duty. A source tells Us he recently traded in two of his vehicles for a Lexus Hybrid SUV to make more room for the family’s little one.
Awww … this is really great news. As I understand it, Jackson is one of the nicest guys around. He always makes time for his legion of Twilight fans and it’s clear that he is desperately in love with Sheila. I don’t believe there are any photos of Sheila’s bump just yet but I’m certain the happy couple are elated to share their news with the world. Let’s send all of our love and congrats to Jackson and Sheila on their happy news … and let the Bump Watch get underway!
