“Unbeknownst to poor Nikki, she didn’t realize that I was going to go in her purse and take out her birth control.”
This is Ian Somerhalder and his wife Nikki Reed.
Somerhalder starred in The Vampire Diaries and Reed was in Twilight, so IDK vampires, vampires, vampires.
Reed recently gave gave birth to the couple’s first child, Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder.
The pair recently appeared on the podcast Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy, and revealed that Somerhalder actually threw out Reed’s birth control pills in order to start trying to have a baby.
The incident happened when the pair was on vacation in Barcelona, Spain. “We decided that we wanted to have children together, and it was just time. But unbeknownst to poor Nikki, she didn’t realize that I was going to go in her purse and take out her birth control,” he said on the show.
“By the way, it was the beginning of the pack, so I had to pop all those suckers out. It is a lot of work, especially after a little bit of Sangria,” he continued. Somerhalder even videotaped himself throwing out the pills.
Somerhalder insisted he did it without Reed's permission but after discussing with her and friends that the couple wanted to have children but also admitted “Actually, now thinking about it, I guess I kind of decided [to start a family].”
