After two years of celibacy since her split from Doyle Bramhall, Renée Zellweger has found love again in the arms of a man named Ant Anstead. While the American magazine People had already revealed the couple to the world last July, this time it is the British host himself who has publicly opened up about their relationship. While the two lovebirds have kept a low profile for several weeks, Ant Anstead is finally out of the silence, this Wednesday, August 17. “Everyone knows that Renée and I have become quite close,” he began on the Daily Pop talk show, broadcast on the E! Channel, reports People.
Then, Ant Anstead added transparently, “Because you know, we’ve been keeping our relationship a secret for a while and unfortunately pictures were taken and released, but it was a real pleasure working with her,” said he explained, specifying that René Zellweger “is super professional and she knows how to bring people together”. The British host and the 52-year-old American actress met on the set of the Celebrity reality TV show IOU Joyride, which will soon air on Discovery +. According to information from TMZ, the two of them fell in love with each other, and since then, they have not left each other.
