But, not so fast, a source tells PEOPLE. Oct. 16 “I dos” can’t be possible: Their wedding singer has another gig!
Fellow Idol alum “Stefano Langone will be performing at it and he’s in Las Vegas performing for Eva Longoria and George Lopez at their annual “Padres Contra El Cancer,” the source says, calling the report false.
McDonald, 26, and Reed, 23, were introduced on the red carpet of Red Riding Hood. “We crossed paths on this random American Idol journey,” McDonald told PEOPLE. “That led me to my future wife, so that’s cool.”
As Reed recently gushed to PEOPLE: “He goes beyond American Idol because he’s so talented.”
Reps for the prospective bride and groom could not immediately be reached for comment.
E! also quoted a source as saying of the groom, whose band is the Nashville-based The Grand Magnolias, “He’s going to play with his band at the reception. He’s got some surprises for Nikki.”
