Ian Somerhalder Reveals He Is Trying For Baby With Nikki Reed

Ian Somerhalder is doing great in his relationship and marriage with Nikki Reed. Everyone has thought for a while that these two might be ready to go to the next level, and it does look like this is the case. ET shared that Ian Somerhalder is actually speaking out and revealing that they are ready to start having children, and the couple is actually already trying.

Right now Ian Somerhalder is the star of The Vampire Diaries and since Nina Dobrev left the show and Ian behind, it is obvious that the show just isn’t the same. Everyone is curious to see how long it will stick around and Ian did share his thoughts on that detail.

“It’s something that everyone is talking about and there is a lot of speculation about it because we’re so far into it. I’ll be honest with you, right now we’re just trying to get through this one and just make this a really, really good season of television.”

Ian Somerhalder acted like he didn’t know if the show would go on after this year either. This show has been around for a while now, and viewers would miss it, but they also know it is not going to last forever. Ian talked about how close he is with Paul Wesley after working together for seven years and says they are like brothers.

Ian went on to talk about his wife Nikki Reed. Ian Somerhalder dated Nina Dobrev for quite some time, but it didn’t work out and he moved on. Ian and Nikki have seemed like a perfect match since they started dating. He spoke about how important she is in his life. Ian just actually directed an episode of the show and then talked about what else is going on.

“I’m going to be editing my episode all night, and that’s just kind of my main focus right now. Other than that, I’m just hanging with my wife [Nikki Reed] and my babies — our babies, all these furry creatures that we have.”

Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder don’t have any kids at home, but they both really do love animals and like to rescue them. They have several dogs, cats, and even horses that they take care of and are always posting pictures of on their social networks. Ian Somerhalder then shared some really important news and revealed that they are already trying for a baby. It sounds like Nikki and Ian will have their own little bundle of joy pretty soon if it is up to them. Honestly, if they were having a baby already, Ian would be waiting to tell the world until she was pretty far along so the news could be coming out sooner than fans expect.

Zap 2 It shared that Ian Somerhalder is also speaking out about how his character Damon is about to go through a really tough time on the show. He is back in the land of the living now, and Damon has to do it without his one true love Elena. Stefan will also disappear and he has to go after him. This is where Damon will end up in a crossover on The Originals.
