How Nikki Reed Met Fiance Paul McDonald

Nikki Reed and her fresh fiancé, Paul McDonald, may have gotten engaged kind of fast, but Reed says, “I love him and I don’t care.” Sounds like these crazy kids have it all figured out.

Paul McDonald was a contestant on the latest American Idol season. When the Idol crew was taken to the premiere of Red Riding Hood, Nikki ran into Paul and said, “You’re amazing. I’m blushing,” before giving him a hug and leaving.

“Was she a famous actress or something?” McDonald asked. Well, there’s at least one redeeming quality about this guy. He doesn’t watch Twilight.

“I would definitely hang out with her,” he gushed. “It would be really good for my IMDB page.”

Ok, he didn’t say that last part. But the two just started dating in April, it seems just a little fast. Then again, who am I to judge? Oh right, a sane human being with basic cognitive reasoning.

Not long after dating, the couple moved in together, and Reed announced her engagement to American Idol contestant Paul McDonald on the red carpet during last night’s MTV Movie Awards.

Reed has won a variety of awards for Best Screenplay when she wrote Thirteen. Reed was dating Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis, but the couple split in June of 2010.

She said in a statement,
“It’s about time that I focused on me. In the last four months, people have been reaming me to know what’s happening in my relationship world.”
