It's a boy for Twilight actor Jackson Rathbone and his girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi.

The couple welcomed their first child, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI, on Thursday, July 5, his rep confirmed to People.

Baby Monroe was born at 9:43 a.m. and weighed 8 pounds, 11 ounces at birth.

Back in February, Jackson's rep announced the news, adding that the couple “is thrilled and excited to be expecting their first child."

“Thanks to everyone for the love and support! Sheila and I are so excited to welcome our baby boy into the world,” the Aim High actor said in March after sharing the sex of the baby. “Love and respect, always!”

Jackson and his burlesque dancer girlfriend met during a tour stop with his band 100 Monkeys.
