He's a vampire with a sweet side.

Nearly a month after the reported birth of their daughter, star Ian Somerhalder confirmed on Instagram that he and Nikki Reed are new parents. Reed may have not been aware of the announcement, because she was asleep, but Somerhalder wrote her an incredible message:

Here's the full text:

Just a quick note to you 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. 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, You husband

and had kept silent regarding the pregnancy until May 4 when Somerhalder posted another photo on Instagram that melted fans' hearts:

star Nikki Reed had previously told Fit Pregnancy that she and her husband would retreat into their own private world when their baby arrived — hence, why there's been no announcement until now:

"We’ll take the baby’s first month for ourselves. 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.”

Congratulations to the new parents, and welcome to the world, Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder!
