In October, the actor opened up to Modern Luxryabout his desire to start a family with Reed: "Oh, I will one day have fantastic children with my lovely wife".
But in the latest issue of Fit Pregnancy and Baby, 29-year-old actress Nikki Reed said she plans on taking a "month of silence" after her first baby is born. "After the baby arrives, we're doing one month of silence", Reed says. There's a good chance that Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed might change their mind, especially if they find themselves needing help from their close friends and family members. "I've always rebelled against that, but being pregnant has given me this new and powerful appreciation for my body", she said. "We can hardly wait to meet you... What I can say is that it is the strongest feeling I've ever felt", she wrote under a photo of Ian Somerhalder kissing her belly already well rounded.
Ian Somerhalder is officially a father.
The pair were engaged six months after they began dating, and in August of 2015 they tied the knot at the Tuscali Mountain Inn in Topanga, California.More news: Nikki Haley: New Tone Now Coming From China on North Korea
The couple is also keeping the sex of their child a secret.
"Ian jokes that he wants to keep me pregnant forever", she shares. I can run multiple companies, read four books at once, and take a conference call while cooking dinner.
"It's the first time in my life I've passed on anything that isn't exactly what I want to be doing", she explained.
Dr. Jillian Roberts, child psychologist of Family Sparks, says those first 30 days with a newborn are both incredibly precious and incredibly hard. "A dear companion had a child and I thought, 'I trust I have a child one day.' Then another companion had a young lady and I thought, 'How fun would it be to have a smaller than usual adaptation of yourself?'"
