Nikki Reed, Ian Somerhalder plan 'month of silence' when baby arrives


Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder are expecting their first child, but don't expect the couple to immediately share any photos when their newborn arrives.

"We'll take the baby's first month for ourselves," Reed told Fit Pregnancy and Baby. "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."
