Nikki Reed & Paul McDonald Get Affectionate at Twilight Afterparty

Originally posted 07/12/2012 10:30AM

After meeting and greeting throngs of fans waiting for hours outside the San Diego Convention Center, the stars of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and more, headed to Hard Rock Hotel's Float Lounge to party.

While some (like Peter Facinelli and new dad Jackson Rathbone) skipped the red carpet, newlyweds Reed and hubby Paul McDonald walked together, and the former Idol contestant waited patiently, sipping a drink while his wife did interviews. When she finished, he snaked his arm around her waist, then Reed gave her hubby's butt a little pinch before heading inside the party, where the couple mingled with fellow guests.

Lutz seemingly started the night with dessert: he was spotted snacking on frozen yogurt inside a VIP cabana, though he later grabbed a slider from a waitress's tray.

Nikki Reed: 'It's a Mistake' to Have Kids Right After Marriage

Originally posted 06/13/2012 04:35PM

Nikki Reed stands by what she said in November shortly after getting hitched: She and her American Idol alum hubby Paul McDonald want kids "one day," but definitely not any time soon.

"Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like it's a mistake for people to get married and then just [have kids right away]," the Twilight star, 24, told PEOPLE last week at the MTV Movie Awards at the Gibson Amphitheater in L.A.

"I feel like it is the pressure of the family making them do it. We want to travel and be able to fly on an airplane without a baby and just have freedom."

Aside from their own personal preference not to dive right into parenthood, the happy couple doesn't really have the time.

Married life is apparently quite sweet for Nikki Reed.

A few months after telling PEOPLE that marriage is "easy breezy" so far, Reed was given a thoughtful treat from hubby Paul McDonald just before the pair celebrate their first Valentine's Day as husband and wife.

The holiday "came a little early," Reed, 23, wrote on WhoSay Monday, in a post that included a photo of a chocolate heart-shaped cake topped with two pink frosting flowers.



Reed noted that the sugary gift from the American Idol alum – which read "Happy 4 Months" on top – was "a lot of calories."
