American Idol finalist Paul McDonald and Twilight star Nikki Reed announced on Monday that they are engaged to be married, after she was spotted with a huge diamond on her finger at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards. Now we can confirm that Nikki Reed’s father is delighted about the whirlwind romance.
Nikki Reed wore and extravagant diamond ring on the red carpet at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards. She looked very happy and gushed that the 26-year-old Nashville, Tennessee native Paul McDonald is definitely “the one” for her.
“I love him and I don’t care,” Reed said of blond hunk McDonald, who she only met in March. “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.”
Twilight star Nikki Reed’s father echoed that praise for Paul and said that he is “happy” that his daughter is engaged to the American Idol singer.
They might have only been dating for three months but the couple went public with their engagement when Reed flashed a diamond ring on the red carpet at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards.
Such a short courtship may make some parents antsy for their kids but Seth Reed has given the couple his blessing. He said, “I am happy for them both; it’s good news.”
Although he remained tight-lipped to preserve the couple’s privacy, he did reveal that Nikki Reed (23) and Paul McDonald (26) are house hunting in the Los Angeles area.
