It’s still hard to believe that Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder welcomed their first child together into the world in July.
Their relationship has had many ups and downs, and it has given us a lot to write about over the years, but now, they are more unified than ever, and it’s adorable.
Nikki was making her way to a Hollywood event on Saturday and took to Instagram to show off her good looks, and jokingly said that her hot date was a breast pump.
“On my way to present at @variety ‘s #powerofwomen luncheon and this is my hot date,” she captioned the photo. “Kidding. I have another hot date. But this thing is definitely our third wheel.”
We are pleased she threw the “kidding” part in because she could have caused a lot of trouble on social media.
The post came just days after Ian apologized for a joke he made about messing with Nikki’s birth control to force her into pregnancy.
“We decided that we wanted to have children together, and it was just time. But unbeknownst to poor Nikki, she didn’t realize that I was going to go in her purse and take out her birth control,” he said on Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy podcast.
Naturally, this was met with a lot of criticism from across the world. Simply put, it’s not something to joke about because it’s a very real thing that happens all the time.
Ian took swift action and turned to Instagram with a lengthy statement to reveal that he and Nikki both wanted to have a child and that he most certainly did not tamper with her birth control.
“We never expect a lighthearted interview we did poking fun at EACH OTHER and how WE chose together to get pregnant, a goofy moment in Barcelona with our two best friends and the anticipation of the start of our journey together as we went from two to three, to turn into something representing a very serious matter,” his post began.
“However, if this somehow sheds a light on a topic that definitely needs mainstream attention, then we are grateful for the unintended consequence.”
“It’s a shame that outlets chose this as their way into a very serious discussion, as we are certainly not qualified to be the faces of this topic.”
“We are two happily married people who chose TOGETHER to have a baby. The end,” he concluded.
