Renee Zellweger is reportedly set to the the knot with her British boyfriend of two years.
Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger is said to be engaged to UK TV presenter, Ant Anstead.
The 55-year-old Bridget Jones star has been dating Ant since 2021 and new information has emerged that the pair are planning to wed.
A close friend of the pair said: "Renee and Ant are keeping their plans incredibly private, they’re not planning a big public announcement.
"She has been telling her inner circle about organising their nuptials, everything will be very low-key," they told The US Sun.
The friend continued: "Her relationship with Ant is super strong and they’re madly in love, and they can’t wait to get hitched."

In 2017 Anstead became co-host of the show Wheeler Dealers, alongside Mike Brewer, and the presenter now resides full-time in the US, where he stars in the show World's Greatest Cars on Sky.
Ant and Renee reportedly met in 2021, seven months after Ant split from his ex-wife Christina Haack, and the pair have been inseparable ever since.
The news comes of the pair's engagement comes just days after Ant Anstead posted a picture of himself, girlfriend Renee Zellweger, and his eldest two children on his Instagram.
The blended family were attending a party to celebrate Goodwood's Festival of Speed and shared pictures of them dressed up before the party, and then dancing into the early morning hours.
Ant captioned the post: "How it started. How it ended 😂 x"
