Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are already preparing to be very protective vampires, I mean, parents to their offspring. There's no word on when the baby is due or what the sex is but it seems like these two are super excited about the future. Nikki hid her pregnancy for awhile, like most celebs do, and is now finally opening up in the September issue of Fit Pregnancy and Baby about her journey. The Twilight alum talks about how pregnancy has changed her relationship with Ian and the month of silence they both plan on taking after the birth.
Nikki said, "Ian jokes that he wants to keep me pregnant forever. I'm a very driven person with lots of energy. I can run multiple companies, read four books at once, and take a conference call while cooking dinner. But pregnant, I'm a better version of myself. I'm really chill and relaxed, which I think is the greatest blessing."
Aww! That's super cute. But, just because she has a bun in the oven doesn't mean she has totally stopped working. Nikki explained, "Being pregnant gave me instant perspective. It's the first time in my life I've passed on anything that isn't exactly what I want to be doing. Pregnancy is the moment you find your path and do what you want, when you want, how you want. I'm building and launching a company that's been a dream of mine. I honestly feel better than ever."
While that all makes total sense, the couple has recently made headlines after announcing that they will be in total hiding after the baby is born. We're kind of confused, TBH. Nikki said when the time comes it will be, "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."
Wait...so does this mean, even FAMILY can't see the baby for 30 days? That can't be. But, that's what it sounds like. The idea seems good in theory but we have a feeling this baby's grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins are going to be pretty disappointed. On the other hand, 30 days isn't that long. Nikki has a point, too. That first month can never be re-lived, so she wants them all to herself – total mommy mode. Still, I've literally never heard of this extended silence.
But, then again, I never was a vampire, so maybe they have a different way of doing things.
