Jackson Rathbone, the “Twilight” actor that plays vampire Jasper Hale, has married his longtime girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi!
The 28-year-old actor tied the knot to the burlesque star in Malibu on Sunday in front of around 150 guests.
The wedding was small, consisting of just family and friends.
Jackson and Sheila, who are parents to an adorable son Monroe born in July of last year, took to Twitter to thank fans for their sweet well-wishes.
Jackson Rathbone tweeted, “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. Feeling so blessed! What an amazing day! Love and respect, Bone Daddy.”
Jackson met Sheila while he was touring with his band 100 Monkeys. He previously spoke about meeting his now-wife for the first time, seeing her at the venue next door to his former band’s gig. He said, “It was one of those things. I always said I believed in love at first sight, but I never really had that feeling before.”
Even before getting married, Rathbone discussed his strong commitment with Sheila. He told People magazine, “Honestly, at the end of the day, you don’t need a piece of paper to say you are in love. We are dedicated completely to one another.”
Jackson and Sheila have 15-month-old Monroe and hope to have more children.
He said of being a daddy, “One of the greatest things I could expect to be in life is a father”.
Jackson, who plays a member of the Cullen family in the “Twilight” series, added that his own father has been a wonderful guide on parenting. He said, “I have one of the greatest dads in the world. He’s been giving me great advice”.
