Actress Nikki Reed recently opened up in an interview with Fox News Digital about how she navigated life as a child star. "I certainly had no idea what I was getting myself into. I was just 13-years-old, and I don't know how I navigated it, to be honest with you. I think I did the best I could, and I had no idea." Reed first showcased her acting skills at the age of 14 when she starred in the movie "Thirteen," which was loosing based on her rebellious nature as a young teen. "I remember being thrown into things like media training and stuff and going like, 'What is that? You don't just, like, pour your whole life out?'" she recalled. She added saying, "I didn't know anything. And so I just learned as time went on how to kind of, you know, figure out that aspect of the business."

Reed tied the knot with fellow actor, Ian Somerhalder in 2015 after they sparked dating rumors in 2014. The pair welcomed their first child, Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder, in 2017 and recently announced in January that they are expecting their second child after "years of dreaming." Although Reed and Somerhalder are both in the acting industry, Reed isn't sure that their children will follow in their footsteps. "I've spent the last couple of years really focusing on stepping behind the camera instead of hanging out in front of it," Reed said. "And I've really learned that I think where my heart and passion lie is in nature and being really disconnected from technology and limiting things like screen time and movies and TV and really embracing things like bottle-feeding goats and planting, getting your hands in the soil and understanding agriculture and seedlings and all the things." She added saying, "So, without saying too much because you never know, I would say that I'm definitely steering our lifestyle and our kids into a more nature-focused, farming-focused life."
