The baby is here! Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are now officially parents.
According to reports via birth certificate, the new parents welcomed their firstborn child into the world on 25th July, at 10:26am. The couple named their daughter Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder.
The pair first started dating in July 2014. They were engaged 6 months later in January 2015 and tied the knot in a sunset ceremony in August 2015. Somerhalder and Reed first announced that they were expecting their bundle of joy earlier in May. They posted matching photos on Instagram of the “Vampire Diaries” actor kissing his missus’ growing belly. The lovebirds also wrote heartfelt notes to their precious little one.
In speaking with Fit Pregnancy and Baby for their September issue, the 29-year-old actress revealed that they will be taking time off once the baby arrives. “After the baby arrives, we’re doing 1 month of silence. Just the 3 of us, no visitors, and we’re turning off our phones too, so there’s no expectation for us to communicate.” Redd told the publication. She added, “Otherwise, every 5 minutes it would be, ‘How are you feeling? Can we have a picture?’ You don’t get those first 30 days back, and we want to be fully present”.
Congrats to Somerhalder and Reed on their baby girl! We’re looking forward to see photos of baby Bodhi in the future ;)
