Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder, two former on-screen vampires turned real-life married parents-to-be, will completely disappear for 30 days after the birth of their first child, Reed told Fit Pregnancy in its September issue. “We’ll take the baby’s first month for ourselves,” she explained. “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.”

She also recalled finding out she was pregnant with her husband at the crack of dawn. “I’m an early bird and took the pregnancy test before dawn,” she said. “I didn’t have my glasses or contacts 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.'”
A baby that Reed seems to still be…expecting. Her last Instagram post was just this afternoon, suggesting that month of silence hasn’t commenced just yet.
