Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed have agreed to take a break from social media for their first month as parents. Hence, the celebrity couple have remained tight-lipped when the actress gave birth to their daughter, Bodhi Soleli, on July 25 until several media outlets confirmed the news a couple of weeks later.

Ian dedicates sweet Instagram post to Nikki

But despite their self-imposed "month of silence" agreement, the "Lost" alum failed to suppress his gratitude to his wife for being an "amazing mom" to their daughter. In his recent Instagram post, Ian Somerhalder shared throwback photos of his pregnant wife and recalled what Nikki Reed has to go through during the pregnancy.

"Seeing these images reminds me of those amazing nine months that you sacrificed your whole being to grow our little one," he captioned. "The kindness, the beauty and organic nature of these photos makes me so very proud."

He went on to thank his wife for being his "partner in this life" and for being an inspiration to him and to other people who look up to her. Nikki Reed, on the other hand, uploaded a photo of her husband who was waiting for solar eclipse. She even called him "inventor of all things possible" for wearing multiple sunglasses.

These posts were just two of several that the couple have posted since they welcomed their daughter into the world. Nikki Reed has previously told "Fit Pregnancy and Baby" that they will not be active on social media once she gives birth.

She added that they will not be accepting visitors and will not communicate with anyone for a month in order to focus on their baby.

Inside Ian and Nikki's relationship

Ian Somerhalder's relationship with Nikki Reed moved at warp speed since they confirmed dating rumors in July 2014. Several months later, the actor finally popped the question before they eventually tied the knot on April 26, 2015 in Malibu.

The celebrity couple did not announce Nikki Reed's pregnancy until last May when they shared their maternity photo shoot in their respective Instagram accounts. The "Twilight" actress was the first to deliver the good news to her fans and wrote a sweet message to their first child. She even gushed about her excitement to finally meet the addition to their growing family.

Ian Somerhalder, on the other hand, considered parenthood as the "most special time" of their lives and wanted Nikki Reed to enjoy this phase with him. The actor also asked for his family's privacy.
