When Ian Somerhalder is ready to be a daddy, he's ready to be a daddy. The interwebs are chattering about new dad Somerhalder admitting he tossed out wife Nikki Reed's birth control pills. Because, obviously, the thought of someone going to such lengths to get the party started is going to turn a few heads.

  • The couple spoke to Dr. Berlin on the "Informed Pregnancy" podcast, where Nikki revealed the lengths her husband went to in order to have a baby.

  • "[Ian] threw out all my birth control pills," the new mom revealed during the interview.

    Apparently, Damon Salvatore (that's Ian's former Vampire Diaries characters, for those not in the know) filmed a six-minute video of his antics that shows Nikki freaking out as her birth control pills went down the toilet.

  • Knowing he might catch heat for admitting his birth control shenanigans, Ian quickly clarified his actions.

    "We decided that we wanted to have children together, and it was just time. But unbeknownst to poor Nikki, she didn't realize that I was going to go in her purse and take out her birth control," Somerhalder mentioned on the podcast. "By the way, it was the beginning of the pack, so I had to pop all those suckers out."

    When this news started circulating online, people didn't hold back in their responses.

  • And as you imagine, folks had a thing or two to say about Ian's tossing his wife's birth control pills without her permission.

  • Yes, Ian's actions sound ... interesting. But maybe we can give him the benefit of the doubt, as he and Nikki know what works in their relationship?

    Just a thought.
