Another Hollywood baby has been born! It was recently announced by Twilight’s Nikki Reed and The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder that their baby Bodhi Soleli [meaning awakening of the sun] Reed Somerhalder was born on July 25th.
The couple kept Bodhi’s birth under wraps for about two and a half weeks which didn’t come as a shock after Reed told Fit Pregnancy “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.” the couple’s goal was to be fully present in the baby’s life for it’s first couple of weeks which in this day and age can really only be achieved with radio silence.
The birth of Bodhi wasn’t the only time the couple has been secretive, the couple kept the sex of the baby secretive during their pregnancy and even waited to tell family and friends. “We waited months to tell even friends and family that we were expecting. It started out with us not knowing how long we’d keep it private. Then it started to feel like we had this really cool thing, a secret with just each other. The downside was that I had moments of wishing I could do things other pregnant mamas were doing. But the upside was that we started the journey without having to open up about it to anyone else, and that made it special.”
