“All I ask is that everyone sends positivity to Nik & I during this time. The social space can be a strange one, but we can also make it a great one.”

Sharing the same photo on her own Instagram, the Twilight star shared her gratitude for her pregnancy and excitement to share the news.

“2023 celebrating life🖤Years of dreaming, manifesting and praying over this very moment. So much love. What a gift,” she began her caption.

“As all of you know, I have very strong boundaries with social media, especially when it comes to children and what I choose to put out into the world. Thank you so much for honoring that, and for sending positivity and kindness and LOVE. Some things are too good not to share :),” she concluded, tagging Somerhalder as the photographer.
