Ian Somerhalder

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed

Ian and her wife, Nikki Reed, welcomed their firstborn July 25 of last year so he was short of one month after Father’s Day last year. One year into fatherhood and people can say he’s doing a good job at being a father to their sweet daughter, Bodhi Soleil.

In an Instagram post he shared last year, he announced that they’re expecting their first child and captioned their ‘maternity’ photo the sweetest words: “To our friends, family, and rest of the world. In my 38 years on this earth, I’ve never experienced anything more powerful and beautiful than this…”

“I can’t think of anything more exciting than this next chapter and we wanted you to hear this from us first.”

Aaron Paul

The 38-year old actor and his wife, Lauren Parsekian also welcomed a baby girl this year. February was a special month for these lovers as they became parents.  The actor captioned a black and white portrait of his daughter’s foot with “My heart.” Simple, yet sweet.
