One of the Cullens is going to be a father — and it’s not Edward Cullen! Jasper Cullen’s real-life alter ego, Jackson Rathbone, revealed that he’s going to be a father with his longtime girlfriend.
Jackson Rathbone is going to be a daddy! The actor, better known as Twilight‘s Jasper Cullen, confirmed that his girlfriend is expecting their first child.
Rathbone and his longtime girlfriend, Sheila Hafsadi, will welcome their first child in a few months, according to his rep. The actor and musician “is thrilled and excited to be expecting their first child.”
The couple met when Hafsadi, a burlesque dancer, watched Rathbone during a tour stop for his band, 100 Monkeys. She must really be into music, because it’s one of Rathbone’s relationship deal breakers because he’s so into it.
“You can lose relationships because you spend long hours playing, but it’s serious stuff,” he told U.K. Glamour in 2009. “Sometimes women don’t get that.”
He’s also into women who appreciate music.
“Watching a girl get lost in music,” he told Glamour of his favorite date activity. “Especially the piano or the cello. If I walked in on a girl playing the cello I might have to go buy new pants!”
Luckily, Rathbone is willing to make a compromise when it comes to his future family. An Us Weekly source said the actor recently traded in two of his vehicles for a more family-friendly Lexus Hybrid SUV.
So, is marriage next? His rep isn’t saying, but they seem like a good pair — maybe even soul mates, though he doesn’t necessarily agree with the concept.
“I believe that we have a destiny, but sometimes people go their entire lives without finding their soul mates,” he told Glamour. “There’s got to be a couple of options, though.”
Not when you have kids, Jackson!
