Nikki Reed has opened up about the moment having a baby became her and husband Ian Somerhalder's priority.

Reed and Somerhalder are both busy with their careers, so they were not able to concentrate on growing their family immediately after tying the knot. And when they finally agreed that they were ready to be parents, the "Vampire Diaries" actor immediately jumpstarted the process by getting rid of his wife's birth control pills. "[He] threw out all my birth control pills," Reed said during Dr. Berlin's "Informed Pregnancy" podcast (via Us Weekly).

Somerhalder sensed that his wife's comment might raise some eyebrows, so he then explained why he did it. "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," Somerhalder explained. "By the way, it was the beginning of the pack, so I had to pop all those suckers out."

Somerhalder also revealed that he has a six-minute video of the "Twilight" star panicking as he flushed the pills down the toilet. The "Lost" actor added that when he looked back at the memory, he knew this was the moment he decided to "kind of decided [to start a family]."

Fortunately, the couple was later blessed with a child. On July 25, the couple welcomed a baby girl named Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder. Reed and Somerhalder were able to keep her birth a secret for weeks before media outlets confirmed that they were officially parents.

This was not surprising, however, since Reed had already said that they wanted their baby's first month to be exclusively theirs. She and her husband apparently didn't want anyone to check on them during the first few weeks folllowing the delivery.

"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."

Reed's recovery was fast. Just a month after giving birth, she was already back to working out and doing acro yoga with her brother, Nathan August. The latter complimented his sister and was even convinced that she could join him for the San Diego Triathlon next month.
