The couple announce their first pregnancy just weeks after celebrating second wedding anniversary.

The 28-year-old 'Twilight' star opened up about the news on Instagram yesterday (May 4th 2017) with an adorable photograph of herself in a long blue gown, looking down with a smile on her face as Ian kisses her burgeoning baby bump against a glorious outdoor backdrop.

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed took a ski trip, proving they can be nauseatingly adorable all year round.
So apparently Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are a thing now. How do we know they’re a thing? Well, they’re currently taking a ski vacation together on the slopes of Idaho. It’s kind of a perfect match really – two actors, who played ice cold bloodsuckers, vacationing together in ice cold weather – we couldn’t think of a better match.
Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder are cute all year round, apparently. In any weather.
Reed’s brother posted a video of Somerhalder somersaulting – well, it wasn’t an actual somersault, but the wordplay was just too irresistible. Meanwhile, Reed’s victory dance might be the most adorable thing ever.
Another couple loving it up at SDCC. What else is new?
Apparently Comic-Con is one giant love fest this year, with Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed reportedly joining the couples list at the con. The actors were spotted together on several occasions over the weekend, but according to E! News, they hung out a lot at Comic-Con.
Is Ian Somerhalder is sticking to the vampire theme.
Both are newly single, as far as tabloid reports go. Somerhalder had a widely reported break-up with Nina Dobrev in 2013, while Reed split from her husband, American Idol alum Paul McDonald in March, 2014. So the timing seems right. Maybe it was their shared appreciation of vampires that sparked the connection?

In 2009, The Vampire Diaries launched on the CW as what looked like a Twilight clone in series form. Based on L. J. Smith's young-adult novels, the series centers on a teenage girl, who catches the attention of two vampires and subsequently has to navigate the complexities of love, family ties, death and the supernatural. At first glance, it sounds very Twilight-ish, especially considering that the series was launched slap bang in the middle of vampire mania. Last night marked the show's 100th episode with a loyal audience and a seasoned cast of stars.
Even the show's stars never anticipated such a lasting success.
Season 5 ratings average 3.5 million viewers per episode, but that doesn’t account for TVD’s strong social media presence. With nearly 18 million Facebook fans and 420,000 Twitter followers (more than 17 million if you count the cast's and producers' followers), it ranks as the fourth most socially active production on TV, after American Idol, The Voice and The X Factor, according to Trendrr, and it's seen in more than 180 countries. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the TVD cast and crew talked about the show’s lasting success. Apparently, the road from page to screen was long and filled with hurdles.

As we swing into awards season, the drama heightens: 'Gravity' is top dog, Steve McQueen won't stoop to hecklers and Meryl Streep knows how to make a good speech.
People's Choice Selects Victors: This week saw the annual People's Choice awards handed out and what an evening it was. Hosted by the stellar Two Broke Girls' Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings, the audience were kept laughing whilst a slew of gongs were distributed to the year's finest figures in popular culture. Sandra Bullock emerged as the star of the evening after she won four awards for her roles in Gravity and The Heat, not including the overall film win for the space thriller. Check out all the winners here.
The evening also brought tears, drama and scandal as former Vampire Diaries couple Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder hinted during their acceptance speech that things are still very amicable between them whilst singer/actress Jennifer Hudson welled up with emotion when she was honoured with a 'favorite humanitarian award.' Read up on the glam evening's highlights here.
The mechanics of The Vampire Diaries might be super complex, but at least the chemistry works.
The Nina Dobrev/Ian Somerhalder situation is strange and complicated – they know it, the tabloids know it and the audience at the People’s Choice awards on Thursday also knew it. When the former couple walked out on stage to accept their award for Best Chemistry, it could have been very awkward. Luckily, Dobrev and Somerhalder were cool about their history and had no problem addressing the very large elephant in the room.
Dobrev and Somerhalder won for Best Chemistry.
JUST DECIDE ALREADY!
Scott Eastwood, the son of Western movie star Clint Eastwood, is the latest in a long line of names to be associated with the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming, ill-fated film adaptation of EL James' raunchy trilogy, Fifty Shades of Grey. The role has had to be recast after former Grey, Charlie Hunnam, walked out over purported scheduling difficulties.
The New Grey?
At this point in time, been described as the 50 Shades frontrunner pretty much means that you're the only male actor left in Hollywood who hasn't already been associated with the role. The list's too long for us to name them all, but notable rumoured former "frontrunners" have included Ian Somerhalder, Jamie Dorkin, Ryan Gosling and Matt Bomer.

Attention now turns to finding the right actor to play Mr Christian Grey.
The 50 Shades of Grey movie appears to be in turmoil with just over two weeks before a huge crew descends on Vancouver for the first official day of shooting, with Universal and Focus Feature expecting to release the movie - based on E.L. James' erotic novel - in August, 2014.
Continue reading: '50 Shades Of Grey' Movie Cast In Turmoil After Charlie Hunnam's Exit
Following the departure of Charlie Hunnam, the producers of the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie are frantically searching for a new Grey.
Charlie Hunnam is out! The actor sensationally left behind his role as Christian Grey in the upcoming FiftyShades of Grey movie adaptation following varied reports stating his schedule was too packed up already and that he had gotten cold feet over the immense pressure of the role. Now the race is one to find another Christian Grey and the shortlist of potential candidates seems to keep on growing.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alexander Skarsgard is among the favorites to succeed Hunnam, with his steamy scenes in True Blood and his obvious sex appeal boding well with producers. The same report also states that Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan is also in line to take on the job, however neither of these rumors have been confirmed yet. THR have also reported that Oscar-nominated screenwriter Patrick Marber (Notes on a Scandal) has been brought in to adjust the script to accomodate another actor.
Would 'The Social Network' actress make a good choice?
It's less than a year until the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is due in cinemas yet there doesn't seem to have been any firm casting decisions made. The movie, which will be an adaptation from EL James' best-selling erotic fiction of the same name, will have British director Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) at its helm but nothing more appears to have been set in concrete.
Will Dakota Johnson Really Take The Lead 50 Shades Character?
The role of Christian Grey - the billionaire with a BDSM fetish - has been the most media-covered role so far, with Ian Somerhalder wanting the role, Garrett Hedlund rejecting the role and Taylor-Johnson's own husband, Aaron, rumored for the part. However, it has emerged that we may know who plays student-turned-sex-slave Anastasia Steele first, namely Dakota Johnson.
The model has reportedly auditioned for a role in the upcoming "mommy porn" movie. We look at the roles that could suit the quirky Cara, as she makes her foray into acting.
Will the Fifty Shades of Grey movie ever be cast? It's been months now and the only solid news we've had is that British filmmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson will be directing. The roles, which will undoubtedly include plenty of nudity, sex and BDSM, have been batted around from one actor to the next with seemingly no one ready to assign their names to Christian Grey or Ana Steele.
Time Is Running Out To Cast The Adaptation Of EL James' Hugely Successful Books.
Emma Watson and Mila Kunis have publically stated they don't want to be associated with the saucy fiction and so have Armie Hammer, Garrett Hedlund and Taylor-Johnson's husband himself, who have each said they don't see themselves as the whip-brandishing type...well at least not on screen. Ian Somerhalder was reportedly up for the role but was rejected by the series' author herself who said he just wasn't right. Will a cast ever be formed?

Shocker: Fifty Shades of Grey reinforces the problem of abuse against women, new research has shown. Nope, it seems EL James' novel - the fastest selling paperback of all time - cannot be regarded simply as "erotic fantasy."
Amy Bonomi, a professor at Michigan State University, and two former colleagues from Ohio State University undertook an in-depth study of the book's first eight chapters and found that "emotional abuse is present in nearly every interaction."
They found that the book, dubbed "mummy porn," included a number of examples of "intimate partner violence", including intimidation, isolation, stalking and humiliation.

The 2013 Teen Choice Awards, held last night (11th August) saw the likes of the Twilight cast; Pretty Little Liars; The Vampire Diaries and Glee taking home a full sized surf board as a trophy.

He won't be the one wielding the whips and chains.
Actor Garrett Hedlund has rejected the lead role in the adaptation of EL James' raunchy erotic novel, Fifty Shades of Grey due to being unable to commit to a trilogy. The movie, which has yet to cast a single role, is due for release in 2014 with the Nowhere Boy director, Sam Taylor Johnson, at the helm and the author herself as producer.
"Do I Really Want To Be Filmed Slapping Someone With A Paddle? Nah."
The Tron: Legacy actor had been reportedly hand-picked by the author herself to play the 27 year-old billionaire with a fetish for domination. However, the actor and boyfriend of Kirsten Dunst passed up on the opportunity to become the face of the biggest franchise since the series. A source speaking to US Magazine explained that "Doing a possible trilogy was too big a commitment, and producers wouldn't let him do just one film."

The erotic novel has taken another step towards the silver screen and looks on course to actually see the light of day
50 Shades Of Grey just became the biggest movie event of summer 2014 that isn't about super heroes, with Universal announcing their plans to have the film out by August 1 2014. The film will be quite the change from Guardians of the Galaxy, the Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X Men: Days of Future Past, but with a director, script and now a release date all lined up, the much-discussed movie adaption looks like it might finally happen after all. Still no work on who will be in it though, but that's just details.
So we know when the movie should be out, and providing director Sam Taylor-Johnson can keep things on track as soon as we get our Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, then things are looking good. Taylor-Johnson was chosen to take on directing duties earlier this month and her announcement behind the camera has obviously given the producers confidence enough to push forward and commit to a date for when we'll see it on screen. Relatively inexperienced as a director, Taylor-Johnson could prove a competent pick nonetheless having achieved praise for her only work so far; the John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy.

Ian Somerhalder has broken his silence following reports of a split from Nina Dobrev.
Ian Somerhalder, one of the favorites to play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, has hinted that his ex-girlfriend Nina Dobrev was to blame for their recent split. The couple called it quits after several years together, with sources confirming the news to People magazine.
The pair were only spotted together in April, taking their cat to the vet late at night. Somerhalder, 34 and Dobrev, 24, kept their romance secret during the early days as a couple, mainly because they were co-stars on the hit CW show Vampire Diaries. "I didn't want to be dating one of my costars," Dobrev told Seventeen last fall. "My goal on the show was to be professional. But sometimes you can't help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long - which I did for a really, really long time."
Though no reason has been given for the split, Somerhalder hinted that it was Dobrev who ended the relationship in a Twitter post this week. Quoting playwright Lillian Hellman, the actor told followers, "A THOUGHT FOR TODAY: People change and forget to tell each other."

As Hollywood rolls into awards' season, the head honchos at Universal Pictures and Focus Features are probably busy plotting for 2013 having landed the rights to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, Paramount and Mark Wahlberg's company all placed bids for the rights in one of fiercest movie bidding wars of recent times. Despite the general critical mauling of E.L. James book (though massive sales figures), the movie boasts a pretty impressive team. The Social Network producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti have signed on while Terra Nova's Kelly Marcel will pen the script.
But that's all the boring stuff. We want to know who's playing Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele right? Murmurings around Hollywood suggest Ryan Gosling is pretty much everyone's first choice to play the wealthy protagonist. Universal want Gosling, the producers want Gosling, the fans want Gosling, hell, Gosling probably wants the role himself. Irish bookmaker Paddy Power have the Drive actor as 2/1 favourite, though one man threw a pretty giant spanner into the works this week. He's the third favourite with the bookmaker, he plays Superman in the forthcoming movie Man of Steel. He is Henry Cavill.
The 29-year-old British actor - who screen-tested for the role of James Bond before Daniel Craig got the part - discussed Fifty Shades of Grey during a recent interview with Details magazine. When quizzed as to whether he would take the role, Cavill gave a curious answer. Whereas Gosling, Ian Somerhalder and Michael Fassbender have coyly laughed off suggestions of becoming Mr Grey, Cavill said, "Whether that happens, that decision will be made at the time it has to be made. It would be a very different kind of thing than Man of Steel." The interviewer observed that Cavill spoke in "the measured tones of someone who knows his way around a Hollywood gag order."

It's a shame, too, because computer-centric horror is usually a good bet for ridiculousness. Here, the computer stuff isn't detailed enough to really bug the geeks; they'll be too busy pointing out how the movie's screenplay could be improved, and how Kristen Bell takes one of the most disappointing baths in horror history.
Continue reading: Pulse (2006) Review
Like an episode of MTV's barely-legal late-night dorm life soap "Undressed," with 20 times the creativity but without any more substance, "The Rules of Attraction" is a stylish, glib, endemically energetic diversion that's indulgently entertaining but could have and should have been deeper.
Enthusiastically adapted by Roger Avery (co-writer of "Pulp Fiction" and writer-director of "Killing Zoe") from the whimsically subversive novel by Bret Easton Ellis, it's a black comedy about the feral underbelly of modern campus life, full of cinematic invention but narrative superficiality.
Populated by teen-TV lightweight types trying to gain edgy credibility, "Rules" stars James Van Der Beek ("Dawson's Creek") in the movie's most resonant performance as antihero Sean Bateman, a deviant college cool-jerk -- who, for the trivia-minded, is the younger brother of the title character in Ellis's "American Psycho."
