Nikki Reed and Ian Sommerhalder

The celebrity pregnancy announcements keep rolling in, with actors Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder each posting a touching message to their unborn baby on Instagram.

“How is it possible to love someone so much already?”

Twilight star Nikki Reed took to Instagram today to announce the exciting news that she’s expecting her first child with husband Ian Somerhalder. 

The 28-year-old actress posted a beautiful sun-drenched photo of Vampire Diaries actor Ian kissing her pregnant belly.

“Hi Little One,” she posted. “I know you, but only because I feel you. How is it possible to love someone so much already?”

Wearing a beautiful flowing blue dress, the actress went on: “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.”

“We wanted you to hear this from us”

Ian also posted the same photo on Instagram, and is clearly already smitten, writing: “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.”

He went on to explain why the couple chose to keep the news a secret for so long, saying that: “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.”

“The most amazing human”

We’ve loved watching Nikki and Ian on our screens all these years, so we can’t wait to see how they’ll embrace parenthood together. The couple married in 2015, and only just celebrated their two year wedding anniversary last month. 

To mark their anniversary, Ian previously posted a pic of their wedding day. While he managed to keep the pregnancy news under wraps, he did say that Nikki was “the most amazing human in the world.” Thanking Nikki for two years of marriage, he said she was “the hardest-working, kindest, most patient and most talented woman I’ve ever known.”

These guys are so damn in love. We wish them the very best with their soon-to-arrive baby!
