"One of the greatest things I could expect to be in life is a father," the actor-musician told Us at the Hollywood premiere of Gone back in February. "I'm very excited!"

Rathbone was relying on his own father for parenting advice. "I have one of the greatest dads in the world," he gushed. "He's just been giving me amazing advice."
