First came love, then came marriage, and now comes a A-list baby in the baby carriage — Nikki Reed is pregnant with her and hubby Ian Somerhalder's first child!

The mama-to-be, 28, announced the news herself on Instagram on May 4 — alongside a sun-kissed photo of Ian kissing her baby bump.

"Hi Little One," she wrote in the caption.

"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..."

If you wanna dredge up their romantic histories, Nikki was married to singer-songwriter Paul McDonald from 2001 until their separation in 2015, while Ian dated his Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev from 2010 to 2013.

In fact, Ian and Nina reportedly double-dated with Nikki and Paul — and rumor has it Ian and Nikki's hookup caused major tension between them and Nina.

But let's talk about something more pleasant, shall we? If you're wondering why Nikki and her 38-year-old beau waited until she had a big bump to tell us their happy news, it's because they try to keep some privacy in their love story.

“Love is love, and people see it, and they feel it, and everyone’s really attracted to that idea,” she told People in 2015.

“As much as we want to expose as much of that as we can, we also just really want to keep some things for us and our family. You don’t have the opportunity to do that very much with what we do for a living, so we’re going to do our best.”

And you can be sure Ian is thrilled about this new development. He even talked about wanting kids back in October.

"The second we were around each other, and not [dating] other people, we just knew," he told Modern Luxury. "Oh, I will one day have amazing children with my beautiful wife. Absolutely, definitely."

Mission successful, then! Congrats to these lovebirds on the incoming addition to their nest.
