‘Twilight’s’ Nikki Reed officially marries ‘American Idol’s’ Paul McDonald


Just a mere 24 hours after the news hit the internet that Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald were going to be married on Sunday, the two have officially tied the knot.

In a statement (per Us Weekly), the “Twilight” star, 23, had this to say about marrying her 27-year old “American Idol” beau:

“We couldn’t be happier! [We were] surrounded by our family and friends. We’re so glad this day has come!” 

The ceremony comes after a rather quick relationship. The two met this spring when Paul (as a part of an “Idol” results show package) attended the premiere of “Red Riding Hood” along with the rest of the season 11 cast, and the two were engaged and moving in together just a couple of months later. They have actually spent a good bit of their time apart, especially with Paul on the road for much of the summer with the show’s extensive tour.

Are you happy for the new couple?
