Barely three months after their first meeting, "American Idol" contestant Paul McDonald and "Twilight" star Nikki Reed are engaged. The couple walked the MTV Movie Awards red carpet together Sunday and confirmed their plans to wed with E!'s Mark Malkin. "He's the one," Reed told E!.

And yes, the romance is whirlwind, but that's not an issue for the couple. "I love him and I don't care," Reed told People in May. "I've never met anyone like him. I've never met anyone who has such a good solid heart and comes from such a good solid family and is just a genuine person. We have the exact same sense of humor. I've never laughed so much with anyone as I do with him." 

No wedding date has been announced, but a summer wedding would be tough, since McDonald begins the "American Idol" tour in early July.
