Somerhalder spoke to ET about how he can't wait to have kids with new wife Nikki Reed, stating that he's beyond ready for fatherhood. "Oh, hell yes! Absolutely," the Vampire Diaries actor excitedly shared when asked if he wants to be a dad.

While Somerhalder himself is obviously not with child, the newlyweds are keeping busy trying! "You know, it's all about practice," he went on about their steamy relationship. "It's not practice makes perfect — it's perfect practice!"

In the meantime, the head-over-heels couple is staying occupied playing mom and dad to their brood of animal babies — they now own a total of nine pets! — and settling comfortably into married life. "It's the most incredible thing to be happy and secure in something," Somerhalder said of their sweet newlywed bliss.
