People reported on the moment on May 22, with pictures featuring the couple sharing a kiss after Anstead’s semi-professional soccer team, Football Club UK (the U.S. affiliate of Southampton FC), won their championship game. Zellweger was spotted cheering Anstead on throughout the game, taking photos and videos on her cell phone from the stands, before hugging and kissing her boyfriend in his green uniform after the team’s win, according to the outlet.
How Long Have Ant Anstead & Renée Zellweger Been an Item?
Anstead and Zellweger’s relationship began right as the television host was parting ways with his ex-wife, HGTV star Christina Hall. Anstead has appeared on Hall’s show “Christina on the Coast” in the past, as the former couple began dating in 2017, married a year later, and separated in September 2020 after having one child, a son named Hudson, in 2019.
Two years in, Anstead has started to open up about his relationship on social media, sharing on April 23, 2023, that he and Zellweger had hit the 2-year mark in their relationship with an Instagram post.
“Two years of magic 💫 💫 x,” Anstead captioned his post, which featured a video slideshow of photos of the couple’s happiest moments, including them walking arm-in-arm down a wooded path, sharing a kiss in a photo booth, and a more casual kiss while seated outdoors.
Days later, Anstead also posted a “fancam” video of Zellweger to that a fan had put together on his Instagram story in honor of Zellweger’s 54th birthday (Anstead is 44). The fan mostly included solo photos and clips of Zellweger in the montage. However, clips of her with Anstead on the “Celebrity IOU: Joyride” set made the cut as well.
Zellweger Is ‘an Old-Fashioned Gal’ Who Doesn’t Use Social Media
But Anstead and Zellweger have kept much of their relationship off social media, which Zellweger doesn’t use anyway.
Zellweger is known to keep her relationships private, including the reasoning behind her divorce from ex-husband and country music star Kenny Chesney after only four months of marriage.
The “Judy” star told the Advocate in September 2016, “I’m an old-fashioned gal who doesn’t feel it’s appropriate to hang out your laundry on the lawn. I feel you devalue yourself as a human being when you share very personal things with a bajillion strangers who are making fun of you. I just don’t see that there’s any dignity in that.”
