Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed have said hello to their first baby.
Which means we’ll soon be saying goodbye to Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed.
The day after Reed said in an interview that she and her husband will lock everyone out of their lives for 30 days after their child enters the world, E! News reports that the blessed event has taken place.
Reed has given birth!
To a girl!
Named Bodhi Soleil!
The bundle of precious joy (full name: Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder) was actually born on July 25.
Neither Somerhalder nor Reed has posted a photo of their daughter on Instagram just yet, but we’d have to imagine they will after their self-imposed “month of silence” is over.
And we’d have to imagine the photograph will be accompanied by some beautiful and profound words.
That’s simply how the ex-Twilight Saga star and former Vampire Diaries actor roll, based on previous social media posts about themselves, their family and each other.
“I know you, but only because I feel you,” wrote Reed as a caption to the image above, which she shared in May to announce her pregnancy, adding at the time:
“How is it possible to love someone so much already? All I know for sure is it’s the strongest feeling I’ve ever felt.
“We’ve been sharing this body for quite some time, and we’ve already experienced so much together. We can’t wait to meet you…”
Friends for years prior to dating for several months, Reed and Somerhalder got married in April of 2015.
They celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary in special fashion a few months ago, gushing over each other in separate Instagram posts.
“Thank you for 2 incredible years of marriage,” wrote Somerhalder to Reed in honor of the occasion, continuing as follows:
“Thank you for being my best friend, the hardest-working, kindest, most patient and most talented woman I’ve ever known.
“To you my love, I say that I know we will have so many of these we can’t even count them. Partly because I’ll be so old… I love you.”
And then there was Reed to Somerhalder:
“Thank you for 2 incredible years of marriage. Thank you for being my best friend, the hardest-working, kindest, most patient and most talented woman I’ve ever known.
“My guy, my man, my honey, my partner in this life, my better half in every way. At exactly this time two years ago today we walked hand in hand into the next chapter, our chapter, together.
“Every day gets better, every moment calling for even more.
“Navigating the waters of life with you is the greatest and most rewarding adventure I’ve ever known. We climb, we grow, and we laugh at all of it.
“Thank you for being exactly who you are, and for loving all of me.”
Man. This little girl is going to be SO very loved!
And we are SO very happy for the newly-expanded family!
