The couple have been married for over two years, having tied the knot in October 2011. McDonald is a singer-songwriter who first appeared on American Idol season 10 and the couple met at the premiere of Red Riding Hood in March of the same year, according to People. Their meeting was televised and it was apparently immediate the two had a connection. Nevertheless, there was grumblings from the onset about the amount of time the couple managed to spend together. McDonald, when questioned about his blossoming relationship, said "There isn't too much time. She's super busy and I'm super busy. We'll figure it out".
