Ian Somerhalder has never been shy about sharing his love for his wife, Nikki Reed, with fans. And this Mother's Day, the Vampire Diaries star posted a photo taken during Reed's pregnancy to celebrate the mother of his child.

"You inspire me every day to learn and alongside learning from you there is no doubt in my mind that we will be the parents we’ve always dreamed of being,” he captioned the photo of Reed, which he took. “Happy 1st Mother’s Day honey. What a special day, like every day, to spend in the California sun with you and our cub." In the pic, a nude Reed has one hand wrapped around her chest, while the other is draped across her growing belly.

Reed also celebrated her first Mother's Day with a throwback pregnancy photo, but she shared a snapshot of her own mother, wearing a bikini and heavily pregnant with Reed's brother in the mid-'80s. "Mamas are everywhere, whether you're a Mama to a fur baby, a foster Mama, a step-Mama, a future Mama, or the best friend of a Mama," Reed captioned the photo. "Everyone out there knows one, and today is a day to celebrate every kind of Mama. And to my sweet baby girl, thanks for choosing me to be yours."
