The happy couple welcomed their first child July 25, People confirmed via the birth certificate. The news was first reported by E!. The outlets report that Reed gave birth to a baby girl, whom the couple named Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder.
Fans have been watching the superstar couple for months in anticipation of the big baby news. Reed and Somerhalder only announced that they were expecting in May, and the actress was already quite far along in her pregnancy, so fans haven't had to wait very long.
"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," Somerhalder wrote in an Instagram post that revealed the pregnancy. "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," he wrote. "Thank you for your kind energy. Love, Ian."
