The waiting game is finally over for #Nikki Reed and #Ian Somerhalder, who reportedly welcomed their first child together on July 25, Tuesday. The first-time parents have yet to confirm if they are ready to attend interviews anytime soon, but recent reports say that they're planning to take a step back from the limelight for a month and spend time with their little one, as per E! Online.

Furthermore, judging from the looks of their respective social media profiles, it seems like the lovebirds couldn't be happier and more excited to introduce the newest member who got a pretty unique name. ENews reported that her name is Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder.

Shortly after the brunette beauty happily announced her pregnancy on social media, the couple had been posting photos, flaunting Reed's baby bump.

A portion of her message on Instagram reads, "I know you, but 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."

Does Ian Somerhalder want to focus more on fatherhood than new projects?

It has long been speculated that the 40-year old actor has not been getting any work since "The Vampire Diaries" Season 8 was entirely wrapped in March this year. Though Somerhalder has kept mum about the true state of his acting career, rumor has it that he wasn't ready yet for work as he wanted to focus on his wife's pregnancy at the time.

Despite the massive requests to see Somerhalder's comeback project with Nina Dobrev, the actor has yet to confirm as to when he's really going back to work. With this, the whispers and rumors suggest that he's allegedly not getting new job offers after "TVD," so he reportedly decided to just focus more on his fatherly duties instead while trying to get his luck back in acting.

Is this true?

Somerhalder is definitely no stranger to rumors, so the reports about his falling career might just be nothing but a false claim. The actor has never issued a statement to clarify if these speculations are true, but many of his fans believe that he should start landing new roles before it's too late.

While there's nothing grand to talk about when it comes to his current acting career, there is still so much happiness found in Somerhalder's new journey as a father. In fact, he was able to send a lot of sweet messages on Instagram after he and his wife revealed that they were expecting their baby number one.

"In my 38 years on this earth I've never experienced anything more powerful and beautiful than this," he wrote. "I can't think of anything more exciting than this next chapter and we wanted you to hear this from us first." Meanwhile, many of his fans are still on the lookout to see the actor’s return to the small screen, so there’s still a good chance that he might take on new roles. #Baby Girl
