Finalist Paul McDonald may have lost on the top spot on American Idol, but what he took home from the show is better than any reality show title — true love! McDonald and Twilight star Nikki Reed, whom he was lucky to meet during an American Idol excursion, are reportedly engaged to be married only a few months after they started dating!
Rumors the couple were engaged reached a flash point at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards when Nikki Reed was seen wearing what looked suspiciously like an engagement ring. When questioned by E! News, Reed was so excited about her new love that she repeated herself, saying: “He’s the one. He’s the one.”
E! News reports that Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are indeed engaged, according to an unidentified source. Reed says her new fiancé has been writing a slew of songs about her and says “he’s going to release a Nikki Reed EP.”
Reed told People in May that she didn’t care how people perceived her whirlwind romance with McDonald. “I’ve never met anyone who has such a good solid heart and comes from such a good solid family and is just a genuine person,” Reed said. “We have the exact same sense of humor. I’ve never laughed so much with anyone as I do with him.”
