‘Twilight’ actress Nikki Reed and her fiancé ‘American Idol’ contestant Paul McDonald confused everyone last week when the couple was photographed walking hand in hand and wearing matching gold bands.
The rumor mill went crazy thinking that the couple had secretly run off and married each other, but a representative for Reed confirms that they are not actually married, but that they are wearing the rings as a commitment to each other while Paul was away on tour. They said;
“Nikki and Paul got rings a few weeks ago while in Washington, D.C., because Paul wanted to wear one while he’s on tour and away from Nikki, as a way to feel close to her while they’re apart. They aren’t married yet.”
It is also reported that the couple also have each others names tattooed on the inside of their ring fingers, which seems like it should be more than enough commitment then the gold bands if you ask us.
Paul and Nikki have been keeping their wedding plans top secret so it wasn’t any surprise that people got the wrong idea when they saw the stars wearing wedding bands. Really, who wears their wedding bands before they get married? Don’t they know that it’s bad luck to do that?
