Ian Somerhalder's Tribute to Nikki Reed on Her 29th Birthday Is Gosh Darn Poetry

Could Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed get any cuter? Reed's May 17 birthday was all the more special this year thanks to the couple's upcoming addition. Just a week after announcing they were expecting their first child, Somerhalder shared a touching tribute to his wife, and when we say "touching," what we really mean is "gosh darn poetic." This post will bring a tear to your eye.

"Happy Birthday to the most amazing human I know," Somerhalder wrote on Wednesday. "Today, we celebrate you. For an innumerable amount of reasons I couldn't even begin to describe, as all of those who know you and those who even don't know you, would agree. It's your day. The love and light you radiate to the world shines like a beacon for all to see. Its that love and light that guides me to the safe shores of home from the turbulent and sometimes treacherous waters of life.

"Thank you for your tireless pursuit of spreading good," he continued, "being an instrument of change and seamlessly weaving the complex threads of our lives together into the warmest, softest and most magical blanket. Every day I get to watch you being you I'm constantly reminded of your beauty and prowess and how lucky I am to share this life with you. Love, Ian."

The last month has been an eventful one for the Vampire Diaries and Twilight stars, who also celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary and Reed's pregnancy.

"Hi Little One," Reed wrote as she shared the good news. "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."

Reed also make headlines this month for the launch of her new sustainable lifestyle line, Bayou With Love. The line features a collection of eco-friendly accessories and products for the discerning patron.

We know where our next paycheck is going.
