They will have a baby and be a family of four with Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder. Both Vampire Diaries actors have shared the news that they expect their second child together.
“It’s 2023, and we’re finally here, the moment we’ve envisioned, worked for and hoped for. There is so much passion here. Incredibly generous, “Reed posted in an Instagram update. The Twilight actress accompanied the words with a photo of herself holding Bodhi, the couple’s 5-year-old daughter, atop her pregnant belly.
On his personal Instagram, Somerhalder shared the same image. From the moment I was a little child, all I’ve ever desired was a huge family,” he wrote. “That was generous of you, Nik. Here we go again!!!! This is Round Two. We are eternally grateful to this extraordinary person for giving us life and love, for being the best mother imaginable, and for working so tirelessly to make our goals come true. I could not believe what I saw in the viewfinder when I took this picture. Nothing could be more lovely than…”
At the end of their respective captions, the parents asked their followers to give them space while they started a family. Reed stated, “As you all know, I have extreme limits with social media, especially with children and what I choose to put out into the world.” “Please accept my deepest gratitude for remembering that and for giving your best wishes, compassion, and LOVE. Forget about keeping it to yourself; some things are just too nice.”
Somerhalder also wrote a letter along these lines. His only request was for good wishes for his partner, Nik, and himself at this challenging time. “The social sphere might be weird, but we can transform it into a fantastic one if we work together.”
Reed and Somerhalder married in 2015 after meeting on the set of The Vampire Diaries. They had Bodhi in July 2017 but haven’t said much about their family since then. Somerhalder told People in August 2022 that he and Reed had relocated their family to a farm in the San Fernando Valley.
When asked about it, he remarked, “[It’s been] amazing.” “This is how things should have been all along.”
