London: `Twilight` star Nikki Reed says she believes the success and happiness she has enjoyed in her life are the "pay-off" she has earned from her hard work.

The 23-year-old actress, who recently finished shooting the `Twilight Saga` movies and tied the knot with former `American Idol` contestant Paul McDonald following a whirlwind romance, insists she isn`t living in a "fairytale" because she deserves her good fortune, Femalefirst reported.

"From finishing the `Twilight` movies to meeting Paul and having our wedding, it`s not like I`m living a fairytale, but when you work hard for things there`s a nice payoff," she

Reed will appear in `Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1` later this month, and she says her alter-ego is set to finally find common ground with Kristen Stewart`s character
Bella Swan on the subject of motherhood.

"Bella gets pregnant against everyone`s wishes, and Rosalie`s life dream is to be a mother, so we find our one common platform with the baby and are on the same page for the
first time," she added.
