“Bridget Jones” star Renee Zellweger finally found love at 54 after numerous flings with famous actors!

“Bridget Jones” star Renée Zellweger and Ant Anstead are reportedly engaged.

A close friend said Zellweger and Anstead couldn’t wait to tie the knot.

Zellweger, who has been married once, and her TV presenter boyfriend are madly in love with each other.

Actress Renée Zellweger and her TV presenter boyfriend Ant Anstead are reportedly planning to tie the knot after a low-key engagement. Zellweger and Anstead started dating in September 2021.

Zellweger has only been married once. She and Kenny Chesney, a country music star, wed in 2005, but their union was shortlived as the pair divorced just four months later.

A friend of Zellweger said the actress and Anstead were keeping their plans very private and had no plans of making a big announcement about their engagement or wedding date. However, the “Bridget Jones’s Diary” star has informed her inner circle of her arrangements.

The friend said even the wedding would be low-key as only Zellweger’s and Anstead’s close friends would know about it. However, the insider added that the pair were in a super strong relationship. “They’re madly in love, and they can’t wait to get hitched,” the friend revealed.

Anstead, who has been married thrice and is a father of three, has dated Zellweger for less than two years. On the other hand, Zellweger, who has no kids, had a couple of relationships after her first divorce, but she was mostly tagged as being unlucky in love.

Now, the 54-year-old seems to have found the right man for herself and is ready to settle down with him. The lovebirds were spotted together at the Goodwill Festival of Speed last weekend.

How Did Zellweger Meet Boyfriend Anstead?
Anstead and Zellweger met while filming “Celebrity IOU Joyride,” a Discovery+ show. In June 2021, People Magazine confirmed that the two were dating, and in September 2021, the couple made their relationship Instagram-official, with the British TV host sharing a sweet black-and-white picture of the actress.

Zellweger and her boyfriend had kept their relationship so private when they began dating. The actress, who doesn’t have a social media profile, hasn’t spoken much about the relationship. However, Anstead opened up when the two started dating.

He said they were taking their relationship one day at a time. He added that their relationship wasn’t something he was willing to talk about. He noted that since the two were still in the early stages of their relationship, he didn’t want to put any pressure on it by revealing more details.

After they started dating, Anstead introduced Zellweger to his three kids, Hudson, Archie, and Amelie. The TV host shares Hudson, 3, with his second wife, Christina Hall. He and his first wife, Louise Storey, share Archie, 16, and Amelie, 19.

Zellweger first met Hudson before she met Archie and Amelie, who live with their mother in England, during the holiday season in 2021. Anstead revealed that everything went great when Zellweger met his two oldest kids. He added that everyone was excited to get together, and everybody got on well.

Zellweger seems to have found people to call her family. She once confessed in an interview that her life was almost similar to that of Bridget, the character she plays in “Bridget Jones.” The actress’s character was unlucky in finding love in the fictional world, but now Zellweger has found someone who loves her so much in the real world.

How Is Anstead’s and Zellweger’s Relationship?
A source revealed in March 2023 that Anstead was smitten with the actress. They said Anstead really loved Zellweger and was very happy with her. The insider also said that Anstead didn’t want to rush things but wanted to propose, which he has now reportedly done.

The pair live together in Laguna Beach, California, where they spend quality time with Anstead’s youngest child. An insider said the couple prioritized Hudson in their relationship because they wanted him to be happy and comfortable.

Even so, the lovebirds also include Archie and Amelie in their relationship. On July 18, 2023, Anstead shared the first picture of Zellweger, himself, and his two older kids. The three looked happy and stunning, with Anstead and Archie rocking black tuxedos. Zellweger was in a gold dress, while Amelie wore a gorgeous black gown.

Zellweger and Anstead have found love and are committed to each other. They enjoy going for simple dates that include bike riding and beach trips. The two reportedly prefer a quiet life, away from the spotlight, so that they can spend lots of time at home to nurture their relationship.
