The famous couple has been silent leading up to this point about their budding romance, even after photographers spotted the duo hanging out in Orange County, California. But, Anstead decided the couple had waited long enough and shared an intimate black and white photo of them together.
The ‘Celebrity IOU: Joyride’ host didn’t include a caption alongside the selfie, but a picture is worth a thousand words!

Obviously, this is the first time the couple has officially confirmed their relationship. It should be noted, Zellweger doesn’t have any social media profiles, so don’t expect her to return the favor! The post was liked and commented on by a few celebrity friends, including his co-host Cristy Lee — who just happened to be there when the couple met — saying, “You two” alongside a smiley face and heart emojis.
Anstead’s ‘Wheeler Dealers’ co-host also jumped into the comment section saying, “Boom” alongside an explosion and heart emojis. The best part, Tarek El Moussa who was married to Anstead’s ex-wife (Christina Haack) like the post. The two co-parented together while Anstead and Haack were still together.
“Renée and my relationship is something that’s really private,” Anstead told People.

He continued, “It’s something I’m not really willing to talk too much about. It’s really early in our relationship and I don’t want to put any pressure on that.”
As for how the two stars got together in the first place…Zellweger was a guest on Antstead’s show. At the time, Anstead was working with the ‘Jerry McGuire’ star to restore two vintage cars as a surprise gift for two brothers, Jerome, and Jerald. The two are sons of Renee’s late publicist Nanci Ryder, who acted as caregivers during her battle with ALS.
“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,” a source told the outlet. Adding, “Both of them are private and dislike public scrutiny, so they have that in common. He’s a creative guy with lots of interests, and she likes to write and produce, so they have things to talk about when together.”
Wedding Bells On The Way?!
As you know, Ant Anstead recently settled his divorce with ‘Flip Or Flop’ star Christian Haack. We broke the story, Haack kept several properties she acquired before the marriage — and the couple’s Newport Beach home was deeded over to her by him before they split. The couple shares a young son together.
The new couple has been spotted serval times in the same area of Orange County, where Anstead currently lives.
