‘Twilight’s’ Nikki Reed records duet with ‘American Idol’ star husband

Nikki’s got a new song.

We already knew that Nikki Reed was more than a little bit of a talented actress — but who knew that she was also a singer to boot?

In order to promote “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” (which finally hits theaters on Friday), the actress made an appearance on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show — and she unveiled a song with her new “American Idol” star husband Paul McDonald in the process. Ironically, Reed said that she only recorded the song a matter of days ago:

“[It] happened about a month ago. Paul basically lives with a guitar strapped around his body, and he just walks around the house plays stuff; I’ve experimented with writing lyrics for other people in the past. He recorded the music, and on the way back from Europe, a week and a half ago,  I just sat and wrote lyrics to his music. Then we went in this Saturday, and recorded it with Andre Harris.” 

This song is actually among one of the cutest songs we’ve ever heard — while it may not be a radio hit, it’s certainly something we could totally see on a film soundtrack (or our iPod if we want to be in a good mood).

What do you think of this song?
