In response, the “Twilight” actress said: “When [Somerhalder] threw out all my birth control pills.”
Somerhalder said that while they were on vacation in Barcelona, Spain, he went into Reed’s purse without her knowledge and took out her birth control pills after the couple had discussed having kids at dinner with friends. “The Vampire Diaries” actor explained:
“We decided that we wanted to have children together, and it was just time. But unbeknownst to poor Nikki, she didn’t realize that I was going to go in her purse and take out her birth control. By the way, it was the beginning of the pack, so I had to pop all those suckers out. It is a lot of work, especially after a little bit of sangria.”
Somerhalder said there is a video on his phone of the moment recorded by a friend. Reed is apparently also featured in the video “freaking out” that her pills are gone.
The couple laughed throughout the retelling of the incident, with Somerhalder eventually admitting: “Actually, now thinking about it, I guess I kind of decided [to start a family].”
Some people on Twitter were horrified by the story:
