A baby is on its way for stars Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed.

The actress from “Twilight” and everybody’s favorite “Vampire Diaries” villain are now expecting their very first child, according to an announcement on their Instagram pages recently.

The posts came after Reed already obtained a full-blown baby bump, making it quite far into the pregnancy.

“Hi Little One I know you, but only because I feel you,” said Reed, 28, on her Instagram page. “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”


The soon-to-be mom uploaded a wonderful full-set of baby bump portraits featuring Ian gently kissing her baby bump.

The alum of the TV show “Lost”, who share the photo set onto his own Instagram page as well kneeled down and cradled the bump lovingly, and Reed smiles down on him.

Ian’s Response

“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,” Somerhalder said.

“I can’t think of anything more exciting than this next chapter and we wanted you to hear this from us first.”

The due date has yet to be announced, but the sizeable belly along with Somerhalder’s wonderful words indicate Reed is quite far along the pregnancy.

“This has been the most special time of our lives and we wanted to keep it between the three of us for as long as possible so we could enjoy this time with each other and our little one who is growing so fast … because that’s what they do, they grow so fast,” Ian said. “Thank you for your kind energy.”
