Jackson Rathbone really wants a playmate for 16-month-old son Monroe. So, it sounds like the pressure is on his new bride Sheila Hafsadi — or perhaps it’s on his Twilight costar Nikki Reed!
“Nikki will be an amazing mom,” Rathbone, 28, told PEOPLE Monday at the opening of Planet Hollywood’s Twilight Forever Fan Experience exhibit in New York.
“We’re trying to infect her with baby fever so we can have an amazing kid for Monroe to play with. We want him to have a little buddy.”
Hafsadi could provide that too, of course — and in fact, Rathbone wouldn’t mind adding two little buddies.
“I grew up with all girls, so if I had a little daughter that would be amazing,” he says. “But either way, I don’t mind. We kind of hope that we’ll have twins, a little boy and girl. That way we have them both done and that’s it!”
Jackson Rathbone talks about life before and after “Twilight” and dishes about his co-stars.
Photos of Jackson at the Twilight Forever Fan Experience Exhibit Launch have been added to the gallery. Enjoy!
And some videos from the event as well.
To promote the upcoming release of the Twilight box set, Jackson appeared on Pix11 for an interview. Check it out below!
The Twilight Forever Experience kicks off exclusively in the big apple today. This is all to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Summit Entertainment’s blockbuster epic and the eagerly enticipated DVD and blu-ray box set release of “Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga.”
The stars of the film, including Jackson Rathbone who stopped by our show this morning to fill us in on what’s in store. Planet Hollywood Times Square (1540 Broadway, New York, NY 10036) will host an exclusive fan celebration to unveil its new Twilight Forever Fan Experience exhibit, where props from all of the films – including Bella’s wedding dress, Edward’s tuxedo and Jacob’s motorcycle — will be on display to the public.
Here’s some videos of Jackson surprising fans at the recent Twilight marathon in NY!

Maria Mesa, Jackson’s The Dead Men co-star, has posted some new behind the scenes images from the film via her official facebook page. I’ve added the ones featuring Jackson to the gallery.
She also recently talked to Celebrity Teen Scoop about what it was like working with Diego and Jackson.
CTS: What was it like working with Jackson and Diego?
Maria: Jackson and Diego were a big inspiration for me. I never thought I’d be working with actors of their caliber in such a short time so I was a little anxious. But getting to know them and being around them every day while doing the movie made me more confident. They are so talented and such nice people. I learned a million things about them, as actors and as people.
Every time there was tension on set or something went wrong, Jackson would surprise us all with a joke or with a weird movement. Even when shooting, he would finish the scene or his line with something random and, believe it or not, it would work in the scene. It always made us all laugh. Sometimes, before or after filming, the crew would get together and start singing songs. Jackson, who is also a talented musician, would play his guitar and the rest of us would sing along. There was always a time or a moment to play, enjoy and have a great time on set.
CTS: What did the three of you do for fun during down time or on days off in Colombia?
Maria: In our free time we would go out to restaurants, spend time with the crew away from set, or just go around the city. Medellin is a beautiful area with enjoyable places.
Thanks to the official Live at the Foxes Den twitter, we finally have a release date for the film! The film is set to hit theaters on December 6th, 2013. No details yet if it’ll be a wide or limited release.
