Nikki Reed Responds to Husband’s Interview Confessing to Throwing Away Her Birth Control

By now you’ve probably heard the story that made the rounds online last week about an interview with new parents Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed discussing the moment they knew they wanted to start to try for a family.

Somerhalder had mentioned that while on vacation in Spain he threw his wife’s birth control pills away, and the vast majority of the internet had some pretty strong reactions to that statement, as one should.

Now the couple are setting the record straight about those birth control remarks, insisting that it was simply a lighthearted interview where the comments were taken out of context, and are apologizing for the controversy they caused.
