It was revealed the actress was pregnant with her first child in May. Reed was the first to break the news, sharing an adorable picture on Instagram of Somerhalder kissing her growing baby bump. “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,” Reed captioned the photo. She added, “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.”
Somerhalder also shared his excitement on social media, writing, “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.”
“The Vampire Diaries” star continued, “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. Thank you for your kind energy.”
The couple began dating in 2014, and married the following year. Since tying the knot, Gossip Cop has busted a number of inaccurate tales about the pair. In February, we corrected the often disproven Celeb Dirty Laundry for falsely alleging Reed was “warning” Somerhalder to stay away from his ex-girlfriend Nina Dobrev.
But later that month, Reed slammed HollywoodLife and other gossip outlets for spreading “baseless rumors” about the supposed drama between herself, Somerhalder and Dobrev. “So here’s to putting an end to all those fake stories of on set jealousy, betrayal, made-up-friendships lost & women hating women,” she said. Now, Gossip Cop wishes Reed and Somerhalder many years of health and happiness with their baby girl!
