Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder are officially parents - and they’ve given their bub a v. unique name

It’s not unusual for a celebrity couple to give their celebrity baby an unusual name, amirite guys?

The on-screen vampire off-screen human couple announced they gave birth to a baby girl on July 25 - keeping it under their hats for a few weeks before bringing the world in on their news.

They’ve named the bundle of joy Bodhi Soliel Reed Somerhalder.

What mouthful.

What do you think of the name?

Nikki took to Instagram to announce they were pregnant back in May this year after plenty of speculation.

She captioned the beautiful image -

"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.

"We've been sharing this body for quite some time, and we've already experienced so much together. We can't wait to meet you…Love your parents."

Ian shared a similar sentiment on his Instagram.

"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.

"This has been the most special time of our lives and we wanted to keep it between the three of us for as long as possible so we could enjoy this time with each other and our little one who is growing so fast...because that's what they do, they grow so fast. Thank you for your kind energy."

The pair tied the knot back in April 2015.
