Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed walked their first red carpet since their daughter was born, and they looked so happy

We’re big fans of this celeb couple! On Friday, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed walked the red carpet for the first time since their daughter was born in July. They looked so happy and, as usual, gave us #couplegoals. Whether Somerhalder is writing a love note to Reed after the birth of their baby, or Reed is writing Somerhalder the sweetest birthday message ever, these two are no strangers to sharing their relationship with us. And, just imagine — they probably have plenty of non-public sweet moments between each other, too.

So what was their big red carpet event? It was the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s XQ Super School Live event in Santa Monica, CA on Friday, September 8th. ICYMI, XQ is made up of a community of people whose mission is to mobilize America to reimagine high school. This means that not only are Somerhalder and Reed going out for the night, but they’re also going out for a great cause. Could we love them anymore?!

Without further ado, here are Somerhalder and Reed’s post-baby debut on the red carpet.


They look amazing, right? And this picture embodies those #couplegoals we mentioned earlier!


Of course, Somerhalder took to Instagram and posted this photo.

If you’re feeling like you haven’t heard much from Reed and Somerhalder recently, there’s a reason for that. After their daughter Bodhi was born in July, they took a “month of silence” to spend with just the three of them.

"After the baby arrives, we’re doing one month of silence. Just the three of us, no visitors, and we’re turning off our phones too, so there’s no expectation for us to communicate. You don’t get those first 30 days back, and we want to be fully present," Nikki said at the time.

We hope Somerhalder and Reed have more nights out, on and off the red carpet, along with their daughter, too. Meanwhile, we’ll just keep looking to them for #relationshipinspo. Anybody else?
