The actress and new mom took to Twitter on Friday to respond to backlash over her husband throwing out her birth control pills. During an interview on Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy Podcast this week, the couple revealed that Somerhalder threw away Reed’s birth control pills when they decided to have a baby.
When asked on the podcast when the decided to start a family, Somerhalder said “May,” to which Reed replied, “Oh yeah…oh when you threw out all my birth control pills.”
“And it was just time,” Somerhalder said. “But unbeknownst to poor Nikki, she didn’t realize that I was gonna go in her purse and take out her birth control and pop them…by the way it was at the beginning of the pack so I had to pop all those suckers out, there was like 25 of them.”
Somerhalder then says there’s a “six-minute video” where Reed is “freaking out” about it.
