Ian Somerhalder Threw Out All of Wife Nikki Reed’s Birth Control Pills

By  | 

It’s been nearly two months since Ian Somerhalder & Nikki Reed became first-time parents. The married couple of nearly two-and-a-half years were open and honest about the hopes of starting a family prior to the big pregnancy announcement in May of this year, but since the birth of their daughter, Bodhi Soleil, on July 25, 2017, the pair’s remained relatively quiet, so it’s hard to believe that it’s almost been 60 days since the event.

But that was totally done on purpose. “We’re doing one month of silence,” the 29-year-old actress told Fit Pregnancy. “Just the three of us, no visitors, and we’re turning off our phones too, so there’s no expectation for us to communicate. Otherwise, every five minutes it would be, ‘How are you feeling? Can we have a picture?’ You don’t get those first 30 days back, and we want to be fully present.”

Now that those 30 days are over, though, the Twilight alum and the Vampire Diaries alum are back in business, ready to discuss what went down prior to the birth of their baby girl, including the fact that the 38-year-old actor took matters into his own hands.

“[He] threw out all my birth control pills,” Nikki said with a laugh during a recent interview on Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy podcast (via Us Weekly).

“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 admitted. “By the way, it was the beginning of the pack, so I had to pop all those suckers out.”

The hot new dad went on to revealed that he has a six-minute video of his wife “freaking out” as he flushed the pills down the toilet. “Actually, now thinking about it, I guess I kind of decided [to start a family],” he added.

This quote angered a LoTtTtT of people, particularly the people over at Cosmo in Australia. “IAN SOMERHALDER THREW AWAY NIKKI REED’S BIRTH CONTROL PILLS AND WE DON’T LIKE HIM ANYMORE,” writer Katie Stow posted as the headline to the news.

Needless to say, Nikki was not having ANY of it:
