Nikki Reed is pregnant. The Twilight actress and Ian Somerhalder announced that they are expecting their first child together.

The 28-year-old took to her Instagram account, and shared an image of the Lost star kissing her baby bump. She captioned the image: "Hi Little One, I know you, but only because I feel you. How is it possible to love someone so much already? 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"

The 38-year-old actor shared the same picture, and wrote: "To our friends, family, and rest of the world. 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. 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...because that's what they do, they grow so fast. Thank you for your kind energy. Love, Ian."

Somerhalder and Reed started dating in 2014, following the actor's split from co-star Nina Dobrev. The couple tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Malibu in 2015.
