Wolf Rhys Meyers was delivered on Dec. 15, 2016 at the couple's home with the help of a midwife. In her Instagram post, Mara said in her Instagram post that Jonathan was "so awesome" at helping her through the delivery.

"I just wanted to take this day as an opportunity to thank our lovely remarkable team #DrStuFischbein #BethCannon @axehuggergirl @catalina.clark #BirthingInstincts that helped deliver Wolf," Mara wrote alongside a slideshow of images from the birth. "It was better than we could have ever hoped/prayed for and am eternally thankful. Would not have had it any other way."

"#NaturalBirth #DelayedCordClamp #HomeBirth #AtHomeBirth #PeacefulBirth under 3 hours. *Wolf was born in his caul sak (like his Mama was) so... we did not know I was in labor until half way through as water never broke," she continued. "Johnny was able to help deliver Wolf as he entered this world and it was the best day of our lives. He was so so awesome as I would have probably passed out if could have seen what was happening."

"Angels were present in spiritual realm and earth angels with our amazing team. Thank you God & Birthing Instincts, #HappyMidWifeDay," Mara concluded.

"J is thee best Father btw. Ridiculously loving, super protective, patient and attentive," she captioned the cute pic. "Wolf is basically snuggled, kissed, adored, sang to and entertained any free minute he has by his Papa. #LuckyMom #BlessedWife 💕."

While Jonathan and Mara are just now sharing details about their birth, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed announced on Thursday that they were expecting.
