Reed and Somerhalder, 38, were recent recipients of some backlash after recalling that, while on vacation in Barcelona, Spain, Somerhalder threw out his wife’s birth-control pills while she was watching.
“To anyone who has been affected by reproductive coercion, we are deeply sorry,” the couple wrote in a joint statement on Twitter. “That is an extremely serious issue, and women’s rights is something that is incredibly important to both of us. It is something we’ve been very vocal about, and something that is very close to our hearts.”
“We never expected a lighthearted interview we did poking fun at EACH OTHER and how WE chose together to get pregnant,” they continued. “A goofy moment in Barcelona with our two best friends and the anticipation of our journey together as we went from two to three, to turn into something representing a very serious matter.”
