American Idol’ Season 10 alum Paul McDonald and new wife Nikki Reed, who stars in the ‘Twilight’ franchise, are really in love. They are so in love that the newlyweds are even working on music together!

The pair debuted the song ‘Now That I Found You’ on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show — which is essentially the center of the pop music universe — and it features McDonald’s endearing, husky and raspy voice singing lyrics written by the love of his life. So it truly was a collaborative effort and a creative partnership. McDonald’s twangy, acoustic guitar riffs fill your ears as he sings the verses penned by Reed, who lends her hubby some help with the vocals during the chorus.

“Paul basically lives with a guitar strapped around his body, and he just walks around the house and plays stuff,” Reed gushed about her husband. “He recorded the music, and on the way back from Europe… I just sat and wrote lyrics to his music. Then we went in this Saturday, and recorded it with Andre Harris.” The couple that plays (music) together, stays together.

This young and madly in love couple show off their still-hot (and relatively new) relationship with this sweet, romantic ode. Luckily, it never crosses into “Enough already” or “Get a room” territory. They’re not being annoying about sharing their love with the world — it’s more charming than anything!
