Actor couple Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are expecting their first child together!

You may know Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed best for playing pretty terrifying vampires in The Vampire Diaries and the Twilight film series, but they're set to play brand new roles - parents!

That's right - the couple, who married in 2015, have announced their first pregnancy together in a SUPER cute Instagram photo.

Nikki, 28, and Ian, 38, both uploaded a gorgeous photo of Nikki cradling her growing baby bump with Ian holding her hands and kissing her belly.

Doesn't it just make your ovaries explode?!

Ok, maybe that's a bit far. But still, it's a pretty adorable photo.

And to make it even MORE adorable (if that's even possible), the captions that the couple uploaded the photo with are just really lovely.

Addressing his friends, family and fans, Ian wrote: "To our friends, family, and rest of the world. In my 38 years on this earth, I've never experienced anything more powerful and beautiful than this.

"I can't think of anything more exciting than this next chapter and we wanted you to hear this from us first. This has been the most special time of our lives and we wanted to keep it between the three of us for as long as possible so we could enjoy this time with each other and our little one who is growing so fast... Because that's what they do, they grow so fast. Thank you for your kind energy."

How cute?!

Nikki posted the same photo, but she chose to address her little letter to her unborn child: "Hi Little One. 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."

Our hearts are literally bursting.

We don't yet know any details about their bundle of joy, for example the gender or when they are expected to arrive in the world, but we'll keep you posted.

Congratulations to the family!
