Vampire Diaries stars and former real-life couple Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev got back together this week ... for the birth of his dog Nietzsche's puppies.
The experience was definitely an eye-opener for the celebrities, even if they broke up earlier this year and are no longer romantically involved.
"Live from the whelping box In Atlanta! Panting, pushing, contractions - Wow. Make no mistake about it - Ladies rule," he wrote Tuesday on Instagram.
"Women of every species blow my mind," the actor went on. "Just incredible what mamas go through! Love to you mamas - all over the world. Jeez."
Nietzsche welcomed eight little ones. No word if she will be renamed Octomom.
