Jackson Rathbone is a dad again!

The former Twilight star, 31, and his wife Sheila Hafsadi welcomed their second child, a baby girl, on Tuesday, May 31, he announced on social media.

Daughter Presley Bowie Rathbone weighed in at 8 lbs., 2 oz.

“Today!! Our daughter is born!! Welcomed into the world at 8:38 a.m. with love & joy,” Rathbone tweeted along with a photo of the proud parents moments after their newborn’s arrival.

In March, Rathbone announced there was another baby on the way when he posted a black-and-white throwback photo of his wife during her first pregnancy on Instagram. In the sweet snap, his wife is all smiles as she shows off her baby belly in a bikini while sitting at a table across from the actor.

“#tbt to our first pregnancy. 8-9 months in this [photo] by @iamnikkireed. Now we’re 7 months along! #pregnantagain yay!” he wrote alongside the picture.

The couple, who met in 2011 at a one of Rathbone’s former band’s concerts, are already parents to 3½-year-old son Monroe Jackson VI. But the actor and musician has made it no secret that he has wanted to add to his brood.

“I grew up with all girls, so if I had a little daughter that would be amazing,” Rathbone told PEOPLE in 2013 shortly after he and Hafsadi were married. “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!”

“It was one of those things. I always said I believed in love at first sight, but I never really had that feeling before [Hafsadi],” Rathbone told PEOPLE previously about meeting his wife for the first time.

“We are dedicated completely to one another,” he added.

Awe, congrats to them! Love her name, his son has a very nice name as well. He seems like a genuinely decent person from everything I’ve heard. I felt something similar when I first met my husband, this feeling of peace just washed over me and I knew we’d be together the rest of our lives, but I never believed things like that really happened, they do😄

Hafsadi looks gorgeous even on the operating table. Congrats to them, they are a beautiful family and seem to have a lot of fun with each other.

It’s a girl, but he names her after two dead male musicians?

Gender-bending Hollywood at its finest. I’d hate to be his son, Whitney Winehouse.
