Nikki Reed Fights Back Against Story Claiming She Was Forced Into Getting Pregnant

Nikki Reed will not stand by and let her words get twisted.

The Twilight star lashed out at a writer who claims her husband, Ian Somerhalder, forced her to get pregnant.

The discussion started when the 29-year-old actress revealed on Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy Podcast that the Vampire Diaries star, 38, threw out her birth control pills.

This prompted a Cosmopolitan writer to slam Somerhalder in a piece that says he pressured his wife into starting a family.

“That is some unconsented bulls*** right there,” they wrote.

After seeing the article, Reed took to Twitter to respond.

“When you actually listen to the podcast (which I’m sure you didn’t) you’ll hear how “unforced” I felt,” Reed wrote in her message on Friday. The actress went on to accuse the writer of starting drama.

"Don’t talk about consent to me," she continued. "And lastly, how dare you try to cast a dark shadow over one of the happiest most memorable days of my life – you’re not only disrespecting me but my baby."

“Oh, and next time you try to stand up for women by writing an article "about women’s rights", try properly conveying the way I felt.”

During the podcast, Reed revealed the Somerhalder threw out her birth control pills, with her consent, during their vacation in Barcelona, Spain.

“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.

He added, “Actually, now thinking about it, I guess I kind of decided [to start a family].”

While the couple laughed about the story, Reed kept a serious front on social media.

In addition to her message to the writer, she wrote on Twitter, “WOMEN’S RIGHTS MATTER, so please don’t use false narratives to highlight issues that are truly important!”

Reed and Somerhalder welcomed their first daughter, Bodhi Soleil, on July 25.
