And baby makes three for Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed. According to E! News, the couple welcomed a little girl named Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder on July 25, 2017, which makes her just over two weeks old at the moment. Seeing as the new parents didn’t even announce that they were expecting a child until pretty far along into the actress’ pregnancy, we guess it’s not THAT surprising we didn’t find out about the birth until way after the fact.
Another contributing factor to the pair’s silence about their daughter’s arrival is probably their desire to go off the grid for the first month of her life.
“We’ll take the baby’s first month for ourselves,” the 29-year-old recently told Fit Pregnancy & Baby magazine. “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.”
The Vampire Diaries actor married the Sleepy Hollow star in April 2015, and announced the pregnancy just over two years later.
“To our friends, family, and rest of the world,” Ian captioned a picture kissing his wife’s baby bump. “In my 38 years on this earth I’ve never experienced anything more powerful and beautiful than this. I can’t think of anything more exciting than this next chapter and we wanted you to hear this from us first. This has been the most special time of our lives and we wanted to keep it between the three of us for as long as possible so we could enjoy this time with each other and our little one who is growing so fast…because that’s what they do, they grow so fast. Thank you for your kind energy.”
Congratulations! We can’t wait to see a picture of little Bodhi.
