While everyone was talking about the sea of black gowns and tuxes at the Golden Globes on Sunday, January 7, new parents Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed also happened to bring a newsworthy accessory to the event. Ian carried around wife Nikki's breast pump all night -- in a to-go box.

The proud mom, who gave birth to the couple's first L.O. Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder five months ago, took to her Instagram Story to share a snap of Ian with the box, writing, "Takes a real man to carry around your breast pump in a ‘to go’ box all night."

Of course the internet loved it. Twitter users jumped on the story to declare it "husband goals" and give Ian props for being "a real one."

This isn't the first time Nikki's documented bringing her breast pump to black tie events. Back in November, she took to Instagram to share, "On my way to present at @variety's #powerofwomen luncheon and this is my hot date. Kidding. I have another hot date. But this thing is definitely our third wheel."

But having a "third wheel" is obviously NBD when you're married to Ian Somerhalder. The Vampire Diaries star credits his awesome dad and husband skills, at least in part, owed to having raised foster cats. He told People back in August that caring for animals has giving him the “love and patience” needed to be a father.

Now we know that not only does he have those traits, but he's clearly also happy to support his wife's pumping efforts however he can. Cheers to that!
