Video: Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald “Now That I’ve Found You”

Nikki Reed and her American Idol husband have released a video for their song “Now That I’ve Found You.”  MTV’s Hollywood Crush has the story:

“I’m always walking around the house with a guitar, and I’m always writing songs and stuff like that,” Paul said. “Nikki’s a great writer and she always kind of sings along with me. I’m like, ‘Dude, you have a great voice. Why don’t we do something?’ When we were on the way back from France, this song kind of happened on the plane. We just got together and wrote it.”

“Basically, what Paul and I are learning about each other, which is so awesome, is I’m a completer. I like to complete things and Paul likes to start things. It’s really great,” Nikki continued.

And so it was that Paul handed Nikki the beginnings of “Now That I’ve Found You,” which she put the finishing touches on in about 20 minutes. Coming up with the video concept, however, wasn’t quite so easy. Nikki originally had a June Carter/Johnny Cash-esque performance treatment in mind, but scrapped it for something a bit more stripped down.

We want your reaction! Do you love it? DO you want more? And would you like to hear a song by the duo on the soundtrack for Breaking Dawn Part 2?


  1. Nikki’s voice is such a nice compliment to Paul’s. The video is so sweet, and I think the song is the perfect love song for any couple.

    I’d love to hear it on BD’s next soundtrack (or another one featuring them.)

  2. I didn’t know Nikki had such a nice voice… Very sweet song, and yes she does look georgeous, but then again… she always does. 😛

  3. Sorry to be the first one to say this, but I don’t like the song or the video. They don’t seem to have much chemistry for a newlywed couple. Personally, I much prefer the old song “Baby, Now That I’ve Found You”. Check out the version of that song by Alison Krauss. Now that’s a real love song.

    I love Nikki’s voice and it would be awesome if she was on the BD Part 2 soundtrack. The video is uniquely shot and I think it makes it refreshing and yet sweet.

    I think its a sweet song and they sound good together- I especially liked the part towards the end about sleeping with socks on LOL. I think they look so happy and Im so glad she found happiness!

  6. I loved it! They sound so sweet together! I want to hear more! And I think I it would be a great addition to the Breaking Dawn Pt. 2 Soundtrack!

  7. Aw, amazing!!!!!

    yes it is sweet and all, but am i the only one that minds that nikki constantly kneels in front of him/gazzes up to him/rubs his shoulders/etc? i find it all a bit demeaning or something. i mean, i don’t mind if there is a scene of that in a video, it is a position someone can adopt naturally from time to time, but it seems to be like that most of the time in the video. ok i don’t want to start a whole fight about what is feminism, etc., but i just want to state that- i wouldn’t want it to be me in the video, not that way. but i guess she doesn’t mind, since she co-directed it.
    anyway, thanks for posting. hipster and cute and nice voice she has.
