"Congratulations!" commented another of Rathbone's followers. "Wishing loads of health and happiness to you and yours."

Rathbone and Hafsadi welcomed their son, whose name has not yet been revealed, on Wednesday, Jan. 1. The couple are also parents to 3-year-old daughter Presley Bowie, whom they welcomed in 2016, and 7-year-old son Monroe Jackson, whom they welcomed in 2012 and whose godmother is Rathbone's Twilight co-star Nikki Reed.

Speaking to PEOPLE following Presley's 2016 birth, the actor revealed that he and his wife were "open" to having more children in the future.

"We're going to take some time," Rathbone said. "In a hypothetical sense, sure, why not? We're open to multiple ways of having kids."


In June of 2019, Rathbone and Hafsadi revealed that their brood would in fact be expanding by one, the couple announcing on social media that they were expecting their third child together.

"This party of four is becoming a party of five!" he announced at the time. "Holy smokes! More Rathbones!!! Please, send us prayers and good vibes for a healthy addition to our family."
