A week before now, Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary. (Man, how time flies, huh?) But now it looks like they have something else to celebrate this week which every one have been anticipated, they posted the most adorable matching Instagrams to share the news: they’re expecting a baby!
Nikki penned an open letter to the newest member of their family, saying “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. We’ve been sharing this body for quite some time, and we’ve already experienced so much together.” She added that “We can’t wait to meet you,” which is evidenced by the photo of choice: Ian kissing Nikki’s stomach while the couple pose serenely in a field.
The Vampire Diaries actor posted the same photo, this time with a letter 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. 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.”
Both stars turned off comments on their photos, but the love is still pouring in: Ian’s Instagram racked up over a million likes, while Nikki’s is climbing steadily at over 300,000. Fans are also commenting with their congratulations on their other photos, including the snapshots they posted to mark their anniversary.
Hi Little One 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. 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
