Nikki Reed & Ian Somerhalder Welcome A Baby Girl With A Creative Name — REPORT
It seems congrats are in order for these two former vampires. According to E! News, Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder have welcomed a baby girl named Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder. Bustle has reached out to reps for the actors for comment on the report, but did not receive a response at the time of publication.
Reed and Somerhalder celebrated their second wedding anniversary recently; the couple got married in April 2015. They began dating after reportedly first becoming friends while they were each with someone else.
This past May the couple officially announced that they were expecting when they each shared a photo of Reed cradling her baby bump while Somerhalder kissed her stomach. In the accompanying caption Reed spoke directly to the baby saying, "Hi Little One. I know you, but only because I feel you. How is it possible to love someone so much already?" Talk about adorable. "All I know for sure is it's the strongest feeling I've ever felt," Reed continued. "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." And now, just a few months later Reed and Somerhalder have reportedly met their baby girl.
Even though E! is reporting the baby is here, don't expect confirmation from the couple or to see pictures or interviews with Reed or Somerhalder for the next couple of weeks. In an interview with Fit Pregnancy and Baby, Reed explained that she and Somerhalder intended to take some time away from the limelight after their baby was born.
"We'll take the baby’s first month for ourselves," the actor explained. "Just the three of us, no visitors, and we're turning off our phones too, so there's no expectation for us to communicate. Otherwise, every five 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."
I don't know about you, but 30 days with out a phone sounds like it would be difficult. Kudos to Reed and Somerhalder though for making that commitment to focusing on their new baby.
