The 'Twilight Saga' actor swaps wedding vows with his baby mama in an intimate ceremony taking place over the weekend in Malibu.
Congratulations are in order for Jackson Rathbone and Sheila Hafsadi. The 28-year-old actor well known for his role as Jasper Hale in "Twilight Saga" movie series tied the knot with his girlfriend on Sunday, September 29.
"It was a small wedding," an insider tells Us Weekly. "Just close friends and family only." The low-key nuptials took place in Malibu, California. According to PEOPLE, around 150 guests were in attendance to witness their union.
Rathbone met Hafsadi, a burlesque dancer, in 2011 during a tour stop in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. with his band 100 Monkeys. "It was one of those things," he recalled. "I always said I believed in love at first sight, but I never really had that feeling before."
The couple welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on July 5, 2012. "I've been wanting a kid for a long time," he once said of his desire to have a big family. "I'll have more - probably two or three."
Rathbone, whose real name is Monroe Jackson Rathbone V, passed down the family name to his first son. "Thank you ALL for the love & support! Sheila & I couldn't be happier to have such a beautiful, healthy baby boy, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI," he tweeted back then.
Rathbone's co-star Nikki Reed, who plays his vampire sister Rosalie Hale in the movie adaptations of Stephenie Meyer's novels, becomes the godmother of the baby.
