Nikki Reed is showing off her singing skills on a new duet called 'Now That I Found You,' which she recorded with husband and 'American Idol' alum Paul McDonald.
The newlywed couple premiered the tune on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, revealing a sweet acoustic ditty that includes lyrics written by the 'Twilight' actress. Although Paul takes the lead on the song, Nikki holds her own with pretty back-up vocals.
According to the 23-year-old star, the duet "happened about a month ago," and this isn't the first time she's dabbled in music. "I've experimented with writing lyrics for other people in the past," she said.
Will the couple continue to make sweet music together? The outlook is good. "He really wants me to," Nikki added. "He's really supportive and encourages everything, so he wants to be a super team. I'm a little more shy. We've done some open mics together. I probably will end up doing it."
