UPDATE: It's a girl! Jackson Rathbone and his wife announced the birth of their healthy daughter Tuesday afternoon.

"Today!! Our daughter is born!! Presley Bowie Rathbone, the post read on Twitter. "8lbs 2oz. Welcomed into the world at 8:38am, with love & joy." Congrats! 


Double the fun!

The Twilight series' Jackson Rathbone is about to become a dad for the second time. The actor gleefully shared a black and white shot of his bikini-clad wife, Sheila Hafsadi, on WhoSay over the Memorial Day weekend. "The wifey at #39weeks and one day! Soon, baby, soon..." the actor captioned the candid shot of his spouse of three years. 

While we know her due date is just around the corner, the City of Dead Men star and his wife have not yet revealed the sex of their second child, though they excitedly await the baby's arrival. The actor and burlesque dancer announced their second pregnancy in March when Hafsadi was already seven months along. 

"#pregnantagain yay!" he wrote on Instagram at the time. 

#tbt to our first pregnancy. 8-9 months in this ?? by @iamnikkireed Now we're 7 months along! #pregnantagain yay!

Rathbone is not one to hide his excitement about becoming a parent. When he learned his then-girlfriend was expecting the couple's first son, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI, he "had to" share a personal photo of the ultrasound. 

"I did something I never thought I would ever do," he told E! News' Marc Malkin in 2012. "I sent a picture over on Twitter of my son's unborn penis. I had to do it. I was so proud in the moment. I literally screamed when I found out in the doctor's office."

In fact, at the time, Rathbone seemed to predict his current fate. "I've been wanting a kid for a long time," Rathbone admitted to Malkin. "I'll have more—probably two or three."

Well, that moment has finally almost arrived four years later. Congratulations to the happy couple and their growing family!
