Looks like Paul McDonald is off the market (sigh). The Nashville crooner is busy doing press rounds today after his elimination on last night's American Idol, and the singer with a swoon-worthy smile has already answered one of our most pressing questions — his relationship status with Twilight beauty Nikki Reed. So what's the scoop?

"Me and Nikki Reed are dating. It's officially true," Paul told reporters during a press conference today, via Zap2it. "She's super-cool, she's super-smart and a really cool girl. We've been hanging out here and there, we're both pretty busy, but it's been fun so far."

It all began when Paul and the rest of the Idol crew went to the Hollywood premiere of Red Riding Hood last month.

Nikki approached Paul on the carpet and gushed: “You’re amazing. I’m blushing, I should go.”

Paul responded, “Wow, thank you” and the two awkwardly hugged good-bye.

As soon as Nikki was out of earshot, Paul asked, “Was she a famous actress or something? I’d hang out with her!”
