American Idol Alum Paul McDonald Engaged to Nikki Reed
After just 3 months of dating, Paul McDonald and Nikki Reed are said to be engaged. A source confirms to E! that the American Idol alum popped the question and Reed accepted. When the Twilight actress, who was sporting what appeared to be an engagement ring, was asked about her future with McDonald at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards she said, “He’s the one. He’s the one.”
McDonald, 26, and Reed, 23, began dating in March after meeting at a screening of ‘Red Riding Hood’ in Los Angeles. At the time McDonald told Us Weekly magazine that Reed was “supercool” and had been supportive of his stint on American Idol. “[Nikki’s] supercool. She’s been real supportive of the whole thing,” he said.
In May, Reed gushed to People magazine about her relationship with McDonald. “I’ve never met anyone like him. 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. We have the exact same sense of humor. I’ve never laughed so much with anyone as I do with him,” she said.
Neither Reed nor McDonald has commented on the engagement rumors.
