Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder want to adopt.

The couple tied the knot earlier this year after a whirlwind romance and both admitted they are desperate to adopt a pet pig together.

Nikki, 27, told PEOPLE: ''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.''

Meanwhile, it's been claimed that the couple, who got married in a romantic ceremony at the Tuscali Mountain Inn in Topanga, California, in May, want to have children soon.

A source said: ''Ian promised Nikki in his wedding vows that he was going to be the best dad ever and that they were going to start 'the baby-making process' right away.

''They discussed getting pregnant on the last leg of their honeymoon. It would be a great story to tell their children.''
