Jackson Rathbone Introduces Daughter Presley Bowie: My Baby Girl Will Make My Son a ‘Better Man’

07/18/2016 at 04:45 PM ET

Jackson Rathbone is opening up about why he decided on a non-traditional name for his baby girl Presley Bowie, who was born May 31.

“Presley is just a name I’ve always loved,” the former Twilight star, 31, tells PEOPLE. “It’s kind of rockabilly, a little bit of my Southern roots and heritage. And Bowie is a family name from my mother’s side. And I’m also a fan of David Bowie, so it’s a tribute.”

Already father to 4-year-old son Monroe Jackson VI with wife Sheila, 28, Rathbone was excited to be having a girl.

“Having a boy first and then a girl, I think it’s going to make [Monroe] a better man when he grows up,” says Rathbone, who adds that his son has been “the sweetest big brother.”

“Whenever we want to change a diaper, he wants to help, and he gets us a diaper, and he’ll get the wipes if we’re in a different room,” the actor and musician continues. “He likes to hold her and give her kisses, tell her goodnight.”

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.
