Nikki Reed, Ian Somerhalder Welcome First Child

Congratulations are in order for Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed!

The couple have welcomed a baby girl named Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder.

Reed announced on her Instagram on Thursday. "Hi Little One, I know you, but only because I feel you. 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," the 28-year-old actress wrote alongside an adorable photo of Somerhalder kissing her baby bump. "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...Love, Your parents."


In an interview that was released just one day before the birth news, Nikki, 29, opened up about her plans for after welcoming her first child.

“We’ll take the baby’s first month for ourselves,” Nikki told ‘Fit Pregnancy and Baby’. “After the baby arrives, we’re doing one month of silence. Just the three of us, no visitors, and we’re turning off our phones too, so there’s no expectation for us to communicate.”

“You don’t get those first 30 days back, and we want to be fully present,” she added.

Bodhi is the first child for the couple, who wed in April 2015 after first being spotted together the previous July and getting engaged that January.
