Candice Accola King, Florence May King


Congratulations are in order!

The Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola King has given birth to her first child with husband Joe King. The actress shared the news on Instagram, posting a photo of her newborn's adorable tiny feet resting on a blanket that announces her name and birthday: Florence May King, born Jan. 15, 2016.

Candice revealed she was expecting at the end of August in another adorable photo that put her baby bump on display. Pictured in the center and surrounded by husband and her two stepdaughters, Ava and Elise, Accola and the rest of the group all point at her belly, which was labeled "BABY" on a white T-shirt.

"Sometimes a Saturday is best spent painting t-shirts and taking an awesome family photo," she captioned the pic. "Happy Monday everybody! #ThatAintNoBurritoinMyBelly Thank you to our friend @softspiritstrong for coming over and snapping this sweet pic."

This is her first marriage and baby, but it's her husband's second marriage and third child. He has two daughters from his previous marriage. The actress and The Fray singer tied the knot in New Orleans in 2014 after getting engaged in 2013.

E! News confirmed that several of her TVD co-stars attended her nuptials, including Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley. Ian Somerhalder wasn't able to make it but made sure to post a hearfelt tribute in the couple's honor.

"Candace and Joe- my brother, my sister. What a magical day this is for both of you," he said. "From the eye of the storm I am still with you in spirit!"

Congratulations again to the Accolas!
