Jackson Rathbone is now married after tying the knot with the mother of his son, Sheila Hafsadi, on Sunday, Sept. 29.

The longtime couple got hitched in Malibu, California, with an intimate ceremony that included only a few guests. "It was a small wedding. Just close friends and family only," a source told Us Weekly.

Rathbone and Hafsadi, who's a burlesque dancer, met while the 100 Monkeys band member was on tour. The pair later welcomed their first child together, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI, in July 2012.

To honor his father and the new and sixth generation Rathbone baby boy, the Twilight actor posted a photo on Twitter of his dad, Monroe Jackson Rathbone IV, smoking a cigar to celebrate the birth of his grandson.

"The original (well, the fourth ...) Bone Daddy!" he wrote. "Monroe Jackson Rathbone IV celebrating the birth of MJR VI."


"I have one of the greatest dads in the world," Rathbone told Us Weekly magazine in February 2012. "He's just been giving me advice."

When his son was first born, the actor was so excited to be a dad, he even texted photos of the baby's first poop to his friends. "It was incredible. I called all my friends and texted them 'my son's first poop?'"
