Nikki Reed Gives Birth To Baby No. 2 With Ian Somerhalder
For Nikki Reed, giving birth to her baby boy marked a new dawn.
The Twilight alum recalled her son’s birth at home, sharing that she was accompanied by midwives Abby Vidikan and Johanna L. Storey, as well as husband Ian Somerhalder, throughout the labor in June.
While sharing intimate Instagram photos from the delivery, which featured Nikki holding onto her midwives for support, the actress described the experience as “one of the most transformative nights of my life.”
The labor began around midnight, with Nikki telling the Mother Daze podcast in an Aug. 24 episode, “This little boy—my water never broke. He kicked and broke my water.”
The movement prompted Nikki jolt awake and tell Ian the news. The Vampire Diaries actor’s reaction? Pure chaos, according to Nikki.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” recalled Nikki, who also shares daughter Bodhi, 5, with Ian. “He shoots up like a cartoon character and starts screaming at the top of his lungs. It must have caught him in a moment where it was like a bad dream or something, ’cause he shoots up and he starts running, races to the door and yells, ‘YOUR WATER BROKE!’ as he slams on all the lights.”
