Ant Anstead is opening up about his love life.
On Wednesday, Anstead and his “Celebrity IOU: Joyride” co-host Cristy Lee made an appearance on E!’s “Daily Pop.” Anstead was asked about Zellweger, who he met while filming her appearance on the Discovery+ show.
“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,” he said, per People magazine.
He dodged giving any other details about their relationship but did share one other fun tidbit about the Hollywood star, who he said was a “real pleasure” to work with.
“She’s super pro, and she can weld,” he gushed.
“Celebrity IOU: Joyride” will follow Anstead and Lee, both car gurus, as they help out A-list celebrities to surprise a deserving loved one with their dream car. James Marsden, Octavia Spencer, Danny Trejo, Tony Hawk and Mary J. Blige all join Zellweger, 52, in paying their good fortune forward on the show.
Anstead and the “Chicago” star made their first public appearance together not long ago, attending Radford Motors gala at the Lyon Air Museum in Santa Ana, California earlier this month.
The reality star looked dapper in a traditional tuxedo and the “Judy” actress wore a dark V-neck dress with loose sleeves, according to photos posted on social media. The car expert, 42, was co-hosting the event during which the new Lotus Type 62-2 race car was unveiled.
The formerly married pair share one son, Hudson, almost 2 years old, and agreed on joint legal and physical custody of him.
Anstead also shares two kids from his first marriage, daughter Amelie 17, and son Archie, 14.
Zellweger was previously linked to musician Doyle Bramhall II from 2012 to 2019. The actress was briefly married to Kenny Chesney in 2005.
