Ian Somerhalder is ready to be a father. The Vampire Diaries actor – who married Nikki Reed in May following a whirlwind romance – is looking forward to having children and is enjoying ”practicing” making babies with his wife.
Asked if he’s ready for children, he told Entertainment Tonight: ”Oh, hell yes! Absolutely. You know, it’s all about practice… It’s not practice makes perfect – it’s perfect practice.
”It’s the most incredible thing to be happy and secure in something. It’s a pretty crazy time and place to bring a child into this turbulent and insane world — but I really can’t wait to do it and really just love it.”
While Ian and Nikki are excited about having children, the couple – who already have nine pets – recently discussed their plans to add to their household by adopting a pig once they are more settled.
Nikki said: ”We talk about pigs all the time. I’m sure in the near future when we move our life back to the west coast; we will probably end up with a couple rescue pigs.”
Ian added: ”We’re going to probably rescue a pig that needs rescuing.”
