Ant Anstead is opening up about his new romance with actress Renee Zellweger.
The reality star confirmed on E!’s Daily Pop that the relationship is not new.
According to People, Anstead said, “Look … everybody knows that Renee and I have become quite close, because we kept it secret for a while, and unfortunately some pictures were taken and put out there.”
Anstead avoided going into detail about his relationship but said that it’s been a pleasure to work with Zellweger.
The duo attended the Radford Motors gala together at the Lyon Air Museum in Santa Ana, California, which was their first public event as a couple.
Anstead and Zellweger began to bond over their shared interests. He’s a creative individual and she enjoys writing and producing.
An insider revealed, “Renée is creative … and often goes for guys who think out of the box. She’s smart, thoughtful, and always looking to expand horizons and nurture those around her.”
Anstead finalized his divorce with his ex-wife Christina Haack in June of 2021. Zellweger was previously married to country star Kenny Chesney in 2005.
The couple is getting serious about each other and has been seen together on beach outings and on walks.
According to Page Six, Anstead said, “Renée’s really lovely … It’s really nice … It’s kind of amazing.”
He joked about his mom seeing a variety of photos of him and Zellweger showing PDA.
“Are we really gonna go there?… I thought we had done really well to keep it secret and keep it under the radar,” said Anstead.
