Nikki Reed and Paul McDonaldFrom PopEater: 'Twilight' actress Nikki Reed is reportedly dating 'American Idol' hopeful Paul McDonald.

According to E! Online, Reed has been calling McDonald her "boyfriend" and the two have been keeping in close contact via Skype.

This is due to the fact that the young actress is busy filming 'Breaking Dawn' and McDonald is still one of the finalists competing on 'Idol.'

The couple first met when the top 13 'Idol' finalists were taken to see 'Red Riding Hood' in early March. Reed met McDonald and complimented his singing saying, "You're amazing. I'm blushing, I should go."
