Why? Nikki explained, "Otherwise, every five minutes it would be, 'How are you feeling? How is it possible to love someone so much already?" the Thirteen star, 29, captioned the sweet photo of Somerhalder, 38, cradling her and kissing her baby bump.
"All I know without a doubt is it's the most grounded feeling I've ever felt".
It seems like the family will be enjoying their time together before sharing anything with the rest of the world. "We can hardly wait to meet you..." "(It was) this really cool thing, a secret with just each other", she said of her first three months of pregnancy.More news: Jose Mourinho provides update on potential Zlatan Ibrahimovic return

We're not knocking that Reed and Somerhalder want to create a bubble of bliss in which to get to know their baby for the first 30 days; no, of course not. There's a good chance that Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed might change their mind, especially if they find themselves needing help from their close friends and family members.
And just last week, Reed released a video of her listening to music with her baby while in the studio for her upcoming album. "In my 38 years on this earth I've never experienced anything more powerful and attractive than this", Somerhalder wrote in an Instagram post that revealed the pregnancy. "Thank you for your kind energy", he added.
"We'll take the child's first month for ourselves", she stated, posturing for a staggering maternity shoot.
The couple tied the knot in April 2015, celebrating their second wedding anniversary this year.
Look, before I had a child, I was all about the "unplugging" and "being present in the moment" stuff too.
