42-year-old Ian Somerhalder and his 32-year-old wife Nikki Reed rarely get spotted by street photographers. Still, yesterday the paparazzi were lucky, and doubly: the couple went for a walk with their three-year-old daughter Bodie, whom the couple try to keep away from prying eyes.
The star family took a stroll through Malibu and enjoyed a fine sunny day before heading to the grocery store for shopping. Nikki walked by the hand with her daughter, who was in a great mood and smiling.
As the actress admitted, at first, when Bodie was still very young, it was quite difficult for her to combine motherhood and work – she often set the alarm clock at 4 in the morning to have time to work a little while her daughter was sleeping.
I felt out of place on such days, but I just accepted it and did everything in my power, she noted.
With the birth of her daughter, as Nikki noted, her regime changed and her overall approach to life.
I have excellent multitasking skills. But I realized that this is probably not something that I should develop in myself. I think multitasking divides my focus in a way that doesn’t benefit my family. I struggle with guilt and wonder if I’m spending too much time on work. But at the same time, I realize that Bodie will have an example of a strong and independent mom who will inspire her to be who she wants, she said.
Recall that Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder got married in 2015, and they were together for a year before the wedding. Their daughter was born two years after their marriage.
