Reed and Somerhalder stopped by Emory University's business school to teach a class "about progressive marketing with an inspiring group of young individuals," and then took an adorable mass selfie. (Not to impose, but we wouldn't hate it if you had this many babies.)

"I used to think this Day was a conspiracy of chocolatiers and florists," Somerhalder captioned a beach selfie on Valentine's Day. "But I realize that taking a day out of our busy lives to celebrate the love in our lives is so important should be every day."
