It's hard for Nikki Reed to accurately describe how much she loves being married to Paul McDonald.

"I love everything about it. When you're married to someone as wonderful as Paul, you can't pick one thing," the newlywed told Us Weekly at The Cinema Society and DKNY's screening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 in NYC Wednesday. "That's the best part about it. It's like everything."

Shortly after tying the knot, McDonald, 27, happily accompanied the jet-setting actress as she promoted Breaking Dawn in Europe and the United States. "I don't want to spend a single day without him," Reed explained.

Before they became an item, Reed told reporters she "hadn't been on a date in a year and a half. My dad said it jokingly and lovingly but he said, 'It's kind of weird that you're 23 and you don't date at all.'"

Since their October 16 Malibu wedding, Reed said she hasn't felt pressure to start a family with the former American Idol contestant.

"I just want to make sure that I do it young enough that my parents are still young, if that makes sense," Reed, 23, told Us. "My parents were in their mid-30s when they had me. I don't want to be 40 when I have a baby."
