Nikki Reed gave birth last month, making her and husband Ian Somerhalder parents for the first time!

It was confirmed by People that Reed gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Bodhi Soleil Reed, back on July 25.

Congrats to the new parents! We can’t help but point out that the name Soleil ~might~ have some serious significance for the couple.

Reed recently revealed to Fit Pregnancy how she learned she was pregnant.

They watched the sun come up together. Soleil is “sun” in French. Awww.

Reed talked about not learning her child’s gender before the birth and what it would mean to have a daughter.

“A close friend had a son and I remember thinking, ‘I hope I have a son one day.’ Then another friend had a girl and I thought, ‘How fun would it be to have a miniature version of yourself ?’ You can’t lose, no matter what. It’s the greatest and only true surprise of your life,” Reed told Fit Pregnancy.

Since the couple is currently experiencing the joys of new parenting, we’re assuming they are smack dab in the middle of their “month of silence.”

All the best for the new family!
