Nikki Reed Describes the Moment She & Ian Somerhalder Found Out They Were Going to Be Parents

Nikki Reed Describes the Moment She & Ian Somerhalder Found Out They Were Going to Be Parents

Nikki Reed is absolutely glowing on the cover of Fit Pregnancy & Baby‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 29-year-old actress and musician had to share:

On her and Ian Somerhalder‘s plans after welcoming their baby: “We’ll take the baby’s first month for ourselves. After the baby arrives, we’re doing one month of silence. Just the three of us, no visitors, and we’re turning off our phones too, so there’s no expectation for us to communicate. You don’t get those first 30 days back, and we want to be fully present.”

On finding out she was pregnant:: “I’m an early bird and took the pregnancy test before dawn. I didn’t have my glasses or contacts and I can’t see without them. I was squinting, thinking, ‘Are there any more lines?’ I yelled to Ian, ‘Get up!’ He ran into the bathroom, read the test, and we were so excited. We watched the sun come up together, just thinking, ‘Wow, we’re going to have a baby.’ ”

On not knowing the sex of their child: “A close friend had a son and I remember thinking, ‘I hope I have a son one day.’ Then another friend had a girl and I thought, ‘How fun would it be to have a miniature version of yourself ?’ You can’t lose, no matter what. It’s the greatest and only true surprise of your life.”

On being pregnant: “Ian jokes that he wants to keep me pregnant forever. Pregnant, I’m a better version of myself. I’m really chill and relaxed, which I think is the greatest blessing.”

  • TaraTeller

    one month of silence? these two are so stupid. like the first 30 days are different than the next 30 days. The grandparents must be thrilled.

  • Casey C

    how they found out she was pegnant – she peed on a stick like literally almost every other woman trying for a baby. groundbreaking journalism right there.
    also, they’re gonna regret that BS 30 days thing. they gonna need and want help. so you’re not gonna let friends or family see the baby? literally not going to talk to anyone? bull shit.

  • Casey C

    its total bullshit. the first 30 days aren’t some wonderous magical gift. they’re exhaustion, shitty diapers, desperation for a shower, a deep desire for food but no energy to cook or eat. its a baby not a freaking unicorn. the way people act like its some kind of miracle act. its just a baby. they’ll want and need help but nah theyre gonna feed into the BS that its a magical time

  • TaraTeller

    “its a baby not a freaking unicorn” made me LOL. these two are beyond pretentious. as if they are going to live in bubble with no outside communication for 30 days? doesn’t the baby need to go to the doctor before 30 days?

  • Casey C

    yup, generally about two pediatritian visits in first month, plus in my country you’ll get visits from the home visitor from social services and the midwife. no such thing as no communication. its also hugely selfish fto friends and family – what if they need support, what if they need to talk to you, but nah, youve got your precious unicorn baby to preen over. prepare for them to be insufferable about their attachment parenting style, and how chill it all is blah blah fuckity blah

  • Gina

    Such a pretentious couple.

  • TaraTeller

    oh please, she’ll never shut up about her brilliant parenting ideas and how HARD it is to be a “working mother.” gag me.

  • ihatepeople

    When was this?

    These two are so pretentious. They literally spoon feed fans what they want to hear some delusional fantasy about the perfect little family. Reality is much different. She had that kid for the PR not because she’s going to be such an awesome doting parent. They don’t even take care of their own pets. This is just another opportunity to her to profit from…organic baby food, holistic mothering advice, lectures about vaccinations being bad, baby clothing line, etc…There’s nothing real about her. There’s a motive for personal gain w everything she does. Funny he hasn’t said much all this time for someone who usually talks incessantly about things he’s happy about. Must be saving the grandiose bragging for post birth.

  • ihatepeople

    The only thing she works hard at is lying and attention seeking.

  • ihatepeople

    That story about how she found out was because she trolls fans and saw that they were ravenous to hear about it. She knew it would draw their attention.

    It’s crap to keep his family away too. You know her family will be around plus their personal photographer plus the nanny plus her personal trainer plus JJ, People and whatever other tabloid she pays to write about them.

  • Blackkitty

    This is a whole lot of bullshit and its so PR most of his fans know this marriage and pregnancy it was all public relation related they don’t even live together for God’s sake. She lives with her mother and seriously who wait 6 to 7 months to announce they having a baby to the world…

  • Nicola

    I hope their month of silence is extended to a year or even a decade.

  • Blackkitty

    You know for a man that was so desperate to become a dad (and is part of the reason he split from Nina Dobrev. Because she wasn’t ready to be a mum. And marriage so what do he do started dating Nikki 4 months later he’s married but wtf…) He hasn’t really bragged about it there was not one photo on either his or his attention sinking bimbo wife’s . Social network not one pic, of them sharing, enjoying ,embracing The Journey of this wonderful experience of becoming parents with their fans.. Don’t people find that a bit odd… Want to know why because this whole thing is fake and all for PR, the man if anyone has seen recent photos of them together looks like he’s ready to go punch the hell out of the paparazzi he’s not happy with her…

  • KRJ

    I don’t understand having a baby w/ a woman that he doesn’t really appear to be in love w/ in the first place. It seem’s they are using this kid for PR purposes like most everything else they do together. Always using gushy article’s & photo’s to sell you on the idea that they are totally in love & everything is perfect. And they were having problem’s from day one they said “I do”.

  • KRJ

    They are not going to talk to anyone because most of their friend’s & family really don’t like nikki. Ian’s family didn’t even come to his wedding to nikki, & his mom hasn’t even talked to him much since the wedding & not at all to nikki!

  • KRJ

    They seriously don’t have to keep his family away cause they don’t really care to come around they don’t like her ass. I totally agree that she will be using this kid for PR purposes, cause she has no career & need’s publicity!

  • TaraTeller

    For the most part, I hate people too. Most of them suck.

  • theonlyandoneme

    30 days with their phones off??? Ohhh, it seems they really have no prospect on their acting careers, and there’s not much job in their production company, or in any of their companies and the ISF… Imagine the president and the vice president being MIA for one month???

  • ihatepeople

    Did his mom even go to the wedding? All we saw was a picture of his dad, brother and sister in law. No pictures of his mom or sister or other family.

  • ihatepeople

    Well her parents will be thrilled because they’ll see the kid just his won’t. You know it’s always about her family.

  • ihatepeople

    They’re hoping by saying they’ll be silent that people will beg for information on them then paps and tabloids will want to post their pictures and gushy articles.

  • ihatepeople

    I just find it OOC for him not to be bragging about it when we all know that’s what he does when he’s excited about something. All along their relationship has been like a business deal. He gets a kid out of it. She gets constant promoting from him. I’m not even sure he’s happy about the kid. The only thing he’s really posted was for advertising her clothing line. He looks like hell everytime you see him anymore.

  • ihatepeople

    These two love putting on a facade.

  • Blackkitty

    I agree he looks like a homeless hobo he had it all before hurricane Nikki, A promising career, a great TV show and a stunning beautiful girlfriend. All Nina asked was he wait 5 years. So she could make a career for herself. He lost it all when he married Nikki.. She’s poison, she’s toxic ,the only thing that Nikki Reed does well is destroy people she did it with her ex husband because he was no longer getting attention and in the public eyes… she thought she hit the jackpot when she got with Ian he was rich successful and The Vampire Diaries was doing successfully well.Now he’s unemployed and looks
    absolutely miserable. Karma is a bitch! Her ill-fated clothing line won’t last long. It go the same way as her acting career went Nowhere. They can pretend all they want that they were happily married couple but anyone with half a brain can see through this bullshit. The only thing this woman will ever be successfully it is being a manipulative conniving attension sinking bitch.

  • Blackkitty

    The whole marriage was PR they don’t even live together she lives with her mother. that’s what gets me and if anyone’s been on their Instagram and Twitter and whatever other social network accounts there aren’t any photos of them together embracing this baby for a couple who likes to throw the fact that they so deeply and crazy in love they sure as hell don’t act it..

  • Blackkitty

    History is pretty much over the moment you put on wedding ring Nikki’s hand … Nikki hasn’t had an acting career since 2012. and from what I’ve heard and this is just a rumour I don’t know if it’s true or not but nobody will hire him because of Nicki she’s blacklisted in Hollywood so the longer he stays with her the less project he will ever get

  • j.

    the hate in this comment section is just beyond

  • carla

    I can’t stand them. She thinks she is so interesting and so special

  • Karin

    Just the same few delusional hateful group of people that enjoy spewing hate everywhere. millions of people love this beautiful couple.

  • KRJ

    No Ian’s mom didn’t attend his wedding or any of his other family member’s or friend’s of his. They were not on board w/ him marrying nikki & wanted him to wait for nina to be ready & he didn’t want to, so he rushed into a wedding w/ nikki for his own selfish reason’s. And now he is in a messy situation.

  • Imane Assi

    I just hope that both both of them will stfu about Nina and enjoy their lives. Oh and Nina was the one who ended it with him not the other way around.

  • Blackkitty

    Nikki and Ian had their baby they had a girl and her name Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder I think Nikki pick the name that’s what it’s a bad names for baby girl she was born on July 25 that’s why they were silent For a week

  • Blackkitty

    Well so much for a month of silence but guess …. it’s all over Facebook and Twitter and God knows what other sites …. Nikki and Ian had their baby they had a girl and her name Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder I think Nikki pick the name that’s what it’s a bad names for baby girl she was born on July 25th

  • Blackkitty

    His family don’t like Nikki I don’t think many people like Nikki… and most of Ian’s friends only put up with her

  • KRJ

    Millions of people don’t even care who they are or know who they are let alone love them.

  • KRJ

    You are not the only one who feels this way other TVD fans feel the same way, it’s fake & only a matter of time before they separate. Nikki just uses everyone around her & has finally gone to far, she is blacklisted in Hollywood & no Ian does’nt appear to be happy about becoming a dad or care about his overall appearence lately. Hope he can get his career back!

  • ihatepeople

    What friends? He got rid of anyone who opposed her. He has no one left except her family and her one friend. IDK how anyone can stand to he around such a fake needy person like her.

  • ihatepeople

    Well now his kid is her newest PR tool. Even worse is he’s using the kid already too to promote his stuff. Look at the People Pets article that came out talking about how pets prepared him for fatherhood time released right before his cat show. They’ve calculated every post for maximum PR benefit. I never thought he’d be like this but he is now w her.

  • ihatepeople

    They’re both doing it already. It’s sad this kid is just another PR prop.

  • Blackkitty

    Ugh,She is such a drama queen and so fake it’s not funny I don’t know how anyone could stand her she’s nasty she’s manipulative cunning and conniving and a two-faced witch, And, now she’s making him block anyone on Instagram Facebook and Twitter they says something nasty about her…. poor Nikki, Ian is losing his fans big time.

  • Blackkitty

    Ian needs to pull his head out of his ass before I jump on a plane and go to LA personally and slap him about the head. Since he got with Nikki he has become fake, nasty, moody and completely utter jackass. He is definitely not the same guy I met in 2012 in Queensland Australia

  • Blackkitty

    He’s become very fake I’m very disappointed in him I never thought he would become like this. He must be so desperate for cash I wouldn’t be surprised if he hits Rock Bottom soon because nobody will hire him for any movies or any endorsements

  • Blackkitty

    OK this is really bizarre but I have to ask and comment on it they had the baby two and a half weeks ago why is Ian in Boston, attending a fan Expo. Shouldn’t he be at home with his wife and newborn daughter! Enjoying the experience of being a new dad, what father goes away so soon after the birth of the new baby. especially since he did nothing but bad for the last couple of years how much you wanted a baby

  • KRJ

    They claim that they wanted a month of silence yet we see photo’s of them at Cat Con & in Boston attending a meet & greet w/ Ian’s fan’s where’s the baby home w/ a nanny, some parent’s. You would think they would be at home w/ the kid & bonding w/ her like most new parent’s! But I guess they are in that business & put PR promotion first. Hope fan’s can see this relationship for what it is what’s going on w/ these two!
