"All I ask is that everyone sends positivity to Nik & I during this time. The social space can be a strange one, but we can also make it a great one."

Sharing the same photo on her own Instagram, the Twilight star shared her gratitude for her pregnancy and excitement to share the news.

"2023 celebrating life🖤Years of dreaming, manifesting and praying over this very moment. So much love. What a gift," she began her caption.

"As all of you know, I have very strong boundaries with social media, especially when it comes to children and what I choose to put out into the world. Thank you so much for honoring that, and for sending positivity and kindness and LOVE. Some things are too good not to share :)," she concluded, tagging Somerhalder as the photographer.

The couple, who tied the knot in April 2015, welcomed Bodhi in July 2017 after announcing they were expecting a few months prior.

While the couple has chosen to raise Bodhi out of the spotlight, they have been open about the environment they are raising her in. The family of three currently resides on a farm, and the Vampire Diaries alum describes their quiet lifestyle as "magic."

"It's really the way it's always supposed to have been," Somerhalder told PEOPLE in August 2022.
