‘Idol’ Heartthrob Paul McDonald Marries Nikki Reed

This morning, "American Idol" heartthrob Paul McDonald shattered the hearts of thousands of female fans when he announced on Twitter: "Yesterday was the most amazing day of my life..everything was perfect. I'm officially a MARRIED MAN! Woohoo!"

That's right--sorry, McFangirls, but actress Nikki Reed has made an honest man out of Paul, after the pair met this past April on the Red Riding Hood premiere red carpet (during "Idol's" top 13 week) and began a whirlwind romance. The star-crossed couple got engaged in June, after just two months of dating.

"We couldn't be happier!" Paul told Us Magazine. "[We were] surrounded by our family and friends. We're so glad this day has come!"

According to Us Magazine, Paul and Nikki were married Sunday in a private Malibu ceremony in front of 100 guests. Us reports that Nikki's wedding gown was bedecked with 100 diamond buttons and a 72-inch train, though there's no word yet if Paul commissioned another $4,500 rhinestone Nudie suit from Nashville tailor Manuel Cuevas Jr. for the occasion. But I sure as heck hope he did. That would make him the best-dressed groom ever.

Check out an interview with Paul from the scene of the Idols Live Tour rehearsals earlier this summer, in which he talked glowingly about his then-fiance and offered a rare peek at his "Nikki" hand tattoo for the Reality Rocks camera. Congrats to the happy if unlikely couple!
