Ian Somerhalder just shared a naked pregnancy picture of his wife, Nikki Reed, as a tribute to her first Mother’s Day. The stars had their first daughter, Bohdi Soleil, on July 25, 2017.
Ian wrote a sweet caption for his wife alongside the photo, saying, “No filter needed. I remember taking this image of this magical human with a tiny magical human inside. Nicole, you are the warmth of the sun, you are the light of the moon, you are the air in my breath and the ground beneath my feet. How lucky I am to witness you in your most natural and powerful state; as a mother.”
He further wrote, “I’m so profoundly grateful to you for the great sacrifice, patience, will and strength to grow, nurture and push this tiny little angel into the world. You inspire me every day to learn and alongside learning from you there is no doubt in my mind that we will be the parents we’ve always dreamed of being. Happy 1st Mother’s Day honey. What a special day, like every day, to spend in the California sun with you and our cub. Love, Baby Daddy aka Ian.”
Previously, he took to Instagram a couple of months after their baby was born, to pay tribute to Nikki as a mother. He wrote, “Just a quick note to my beautiful wife. You are briefly napping on the other side of the room after being an amazing mom all night so you’ll read this when you wake… seeing these images reminds me of those amazing 9 months that you sacrificed your whole being to grow our little one.”
He further continued, “The kindness, the beauty and organic nature of these photos makes me so very proud. You brought such fun and such power into our lives being pregnant but you literally brought the word sexy into pregnancy, we all see it. Thank you for being my partner in this life and thank you for inspiring not just me but all others who read, hear or see what your soul gives us. Love, Your husband.”
Ian regularly documents his love and appreciation for his wife on social media. A month ago, he wrote Nikki a sweet message in honor of their third wedding anniversary. He wrote, “This human… Happy 3 years today you amazing woman. This photo of you brings me to a quiet moment of that magical day. The sun was so perfect, shining on you like the goddess you truly are.”
“From honeymooners toasting misty Costa Rican volcanoes with Chilean Cabarnet in the pool (starting promptly at 12 noon of course) to quiet mountain-side anniversary moments talking photography, philosophy and parenting… This journey is so beautiful and so inspiring. I love you to the moon and back a thousand million times. Thank you for 3 amazing years. Wow… three years married… Time truly does fly when you’re having fun. Love, Your Man,” he concluded.
The couple kept their pregnancy a secret until only around a month and a half was left before Nikki gave birth. Ian broke the news about them having a baby via Instagram. He wrote, “To our friends, family and rest of the world. 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.”
He further stated, “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. Love, Ian.”
Nikki posted the same picture with the caption, “Hi Little One, I know you 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. 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.”
