Nikki Reed thinks starting a family immediately after getting married is a bad idea.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 actress believes that newlyweds should have more freedom when they first tie the knot.

She told People: "Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like it's a mistake for people to get married and then just [have kids right away].

"I feel like it is the pressure of the family making them do it. We want to travel and be able to fly on an airplane without a baby and just have freedom."

Meanwhile the 24-year-old whose spouse is former 'American Idol' contestant Paul McDonald says they don't have time for parenthood at the moment.

Reed said: "It's been a little stressful [lately] because it's been so busy. Paul's been recording his album full time, and I've been shooting, so we're both very busy right now."

The 27-year-old musician and the actress think they have found the successful formula to making their showbiz romance succeed.

McDonald said: "We try to stay together as much as we can. I'll [sometimes] go to set with her and she'll come with me to the studio."

His wife added: "You just have to make the other person a priority over your work, which is a very controversial statement, I guess. People, especially in this business, don't think that's a good idea, but that's what you have to do."
