Nothing will make you take to social media quite like becoming a parent. Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder is singing wife Nikki Reed's praises after giving birth to their first child, a daughter named Bodhi Soleil. And while this post does go against Nikki and Ian's monthlong vow of social-media silence, what this new dad wrote just might bring you to tears. 


The 38-year-old new papa is making the Interwebs cry something ugly, thanks to the love note he shared on Instagram -- praising wife Nikki for being an amazing mom and carrying their daughter.

"Just a quick note to you my beautiful wife," Somerhalder writes. "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 new dad continues:

"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.


You[r] husband."
