Nikki Reed claims music is the secret to her happy marriage.

The 'Twilight Saga' actress - who celebrated her first wedding anniversary with former 'American Idol' contestant Paul McDonald in October - admits having a normal relationship in Hollywood is difficult but the couple tries not to lose track of what is important to them.

She told ''I feel like especially being in this crazy, weirdo world that we're in, where we're making movies and people are on tour, it's just so easy to lose track of what's important.

''I feel like it's really important to just be with each other and make the other person a priority.''

The couple has no plans to start a family anytime soon.

She said: ''Right now we're just so focused on what we're doing together musically and where we're at in our careers. I can't try to predict what life has in store for us because obviously at a certain point, you throw your hands up and say what's meant to happen will happen. But right now at this moment, I don't feel like I'm insistent on that. I just feel really content.''

The 24-year-old singer and actress revealed that she and her 28-year-old husband are in the process of writing a full-length album together and she can't wait for their fans to hear it.

She said: ''We're actually writing a full-length [album] and we should be releasing that in the next couple of months and hopefully doing some touring in Europe. We're playing a few shows at SXSW.''
