This is Ian Somerhalder and his wife, Nikki Reed.
Reed recently gave birth to the couple's first child, Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder.
The pair recently appeared on the podcast Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy, and revealed that Somerhalder actually threw out Reed's birth control pills in order to start trying to have a baby.
The incident happened when the pair was on vacation in Barcelona, Spain. “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," he said on the show.
Not surprisingly, many people took to Twitter to criticize Somerhalder's actions.
People highlighted how much Somerhalder's story sounded like reproductive coercion.
According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, reproductive coercion "involves behavior intended to maintain power and control in a relationship related to reproductive health."
And criticized Reed for continuing to stay with Somerhalder despite his actions.
Some fans revoked their support.
