"It was the beginning of the pack, so I had to pop all those suckers out", he said, confessing he flushed them down the toilet.

'Actually, now thinking about it, I guess I kind of decided [to start a family]'. Or confusion. In a new interview on Dr. Berlin's "Informed Pregnancy" podcast this week, the couple opened up about their journey to pregnancy, which began when they traveled to Barcelona in 2016. "It is a lot of work, especially after a little bit of sangria", and even filmed himself disposing of the pills.

"May", Ian replied, referring to a year ago, to which Reed lightheartedly responded, "Oh yeah. when you threw out all my birth control pills". Somerhalder says there's a six-minute video showing Reed freaking out upon realizing her birth control is gone, Jezebel reports. The Damon Salvatore of "The Vampire Diaries" hasn't responded to any of the critics but Nikki has.

But the actress would like to clear the air after all the backlash over those who thought it wasn't right he was taking her health into his hands!

She posted a series of messages to qualify that women's rights matter to her and that others interpreted what was supposed to be a amusing interview of a married couple differently. She emphasized that people should pay attention to women's rights and not make gossip about "a amusing interview between a married couple". But one story about how they chose to start a family has caused a firestorm online - and now Reed is speaking out about the backlash.

The pair got married in a low-key wedding in Malibu in 2015 and their daughter Bodhi was born on July 25.

The couple laughed about the whole incident, further sharing that the decision was made in tandem with their close friends so they could hopefully welcome and raise their children together. "I wanted it to be peaceful, quiet, alone".

"I didn't know if I wanted kids", Reed said.
