Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed have announced they’re expecting their first child together. The pair, who wed in May 2015, shared the happy news in an Instagram post on Thursday.
Alongside a picture of 38-year-old Ian kissing Nikki’s bump, the actor wrote: “To our friends, family, and rest of the world. In my 38 years on this earth I’ve never experienced anything more powerful and beautiful than this. I can’t think of anything more exciting than this next chapter and we wanted you to hear this from us first. Ian added that the pair have kept it a secret for a while as they wanted to “enjoy” their time as a trio.
While Nikki penned a note to their unborn child, writing: “Hi Little One, I know you, but only because I feel you. How is it possible to love someone so much already? All I know for sure is it’s the strongest feeling I’ve ever felt. We’ve been sharing this body for quite some time, and we’ve already experienced so much together. We can’t wait to meet you… Love Your parents.”
