Why Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed Broke Their Month of Silence
So why did they both break their silence early?
Just for the cutest possible reasons.
The two former famous bloodsuckers are notorious for gushing about each other on social media, so it's no surprise they weren't able to last a full 30 days without expressing their mutual adoration.
Just a quick note to you my beautiful wife. You are briefly napping on the other side of the room after being an amazing mom all night so you'll read this when you wake... seeing these images reminds me of those amazing 9 months that you sacrificed your whole being to grow our little one. The kindness, the beauty and organic nature of these photos makes me so very proud. You brought such fun and such power into our lives being pregnant but you literally brought the word sexy into pregnancy, we all see it. Thank you for being my partner in this life and thank you for inspiring not just me but all others who read, hear or see what your soul gives us. Love, Your husband
The sweet update was followed not long after by a funny one on the Twilight actress's feed.
Seems Team Somereed also took some time off from baby care to check out Monday's solar eclipse, which Ian watched with some eye protection that's not quite NASA approved...
However, we noticed that, even before this week, these two weren't as true to that whole month of silence thing as they vowed to be.
Both new parents have made a few posts on Instagram since baby Bodhi’s arrival.
Ian's have mostly been throwbacks like this one of him editing the TVD episode he directed in Season 6.
Found another #tbt Me 4AM, Atlanta GA editing episode 16 of Season 6 called "The Downward Spiral" in 2014 in my kitchen. I hadn't slept all night and had a call time for shooting in two hours. Learned a valuable lesson as a director that night-never put all of your edit notes on papers that can easily be thrown away by one's Housekeeper. Shit. Got it done- loved that episode. Download it if you haven't seen it;)
Meanwhile, Nikki has kept up her Sunday @YearsofLiving posts and shared about her upcoming album a week after giving birth:
Hey, giving up social media for a full month is easier said than done!
We can't rule out the possibility that these two have other people in their employ to keep their accounts updated while they dote on Bodhi, either. Lots of celebs have social media managers on their team of publicists.
Even if that's not the case, we can't think of better cause than true love to break your communications fast!
Still, some fans have gotten a bit snarky over the whole thing.
A few fans noticed the social media silence wasn't exactly enduring on Ian's channels especially.
Wait... shouldn't you be in silence for a month?— Scarlett (@Gone_Fangirl) August 22, 2017
30 days of silence WHEN?— Nina Dobrev (@NinaDobrevHotAF) August 23, 2017
Still, the sweet tweets and comments far outweigh the salty.
awwww Ian, you are the cutest husband so sweet— Baby Soleil (@Team_Smoldy) August 21, 2017
This is how every man should talk to his wife!— Krissy Fox Durbin (@krisangel815) August 21, 2017
These two truly are #RelationshipGoals.
Here's hoping the next break from their social media fast involves a pic of that new baby!
