Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder’s ‘month of silence’ with new baby

Exciting times ahead.

The soon-to-be parents have a very specific plan for the month after their baby is born.

Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder have revealed that they will be taking time away for the first 30 days after the birth of their child.

Speaking with Fit Pregnancy, Nikki told them of her plans to enjoy time with her newborn without interference from the outside world.

“We’ll take the baby’s first month for ourselves,” she revealed.

“After the baby arrives, we’re doing one month of silence. 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.”

The actress went on to discuss the moment she found out she was expecting, saying:

“I didn’t have my glasses and I can’t see without them. I was squinting, thinking, ‘Are there any more lines?’

“I yelled to Ian, ‘Get up!’ He ran into the bathroom, read the test, and we were so excited.

“We watched the sun come up together, just thinking, ‘Wow, we’re going to have a baby!’”

Well, with Nikki sharing her latest post only last night, it’s safe to say the baby’s not here just yet.
