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."
