Looks like Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev are over any awkwardness that ensued after their breakup in May. The "Vampire Diaries" co-stars came together to witness the actor's dog, Nietzsche, give birth to puppies on Tuesday.
"Live from the whelping box In Atlanta! Panting, pushing, contractions – Wow. Make no mistake about it – Ladies rule," the dreamy-eyed actor gushed on Instagram. "Women of every species blow my mind...Incredible what mamas go through! Love to you mamas-all over the world. Jeez."
Dobrev, who stepped out last weekend with rumored boyfriend Derek Hough, was equally impressed as she shared a photo of some of the eight puppies Nietzsche delivered: "Such a beautiful + equally terrifying thing to witness ...The miracle of life :) #Wow."
And before you go all Bob Barker and tut-tut about spaying and neutering, keep in mind that the furry new mom was already pregnant when Somerhalder rescued her from traffic near the "Vampire Diaries" set in August.
