Renee Zellweger looked absolutely smitten as she passionately locked lips with Ant Anstead during a romantic stroll down the beach.

The 52-year-old actress seemed mesmerised as the loved up couple piled on the PDA while they enjoyed a sunset walk at Newport Beach in California.

The Bridget Jones’s Diary star rocked a workout-style top, leggings and baseball cap as she hugged her man, who sported a pair of black swimming shorts and a t-shirt.

The couple were snapped hugging on the beach, and they were joined by Ant’s 22-month-old son Hudson – whom he shares with ex-wife Christina Haack – as he played in the sand.

It comes just a couple of weeks after they were pictured enjoyed a coffee on the balcony of his new Laguna Beach home.

It was previously reported that Renee and Ant began dating last month, with the pair said to have recently worked together on the set of Ant’s upcoming Discovery+ series Celebrity IOU: Joyride, according to TMZ.

Renee will also appear in the show so perhaps viewers will witness the moment when sparks begin to fly between the duo.

An insider later told People that they ‘just click’ and ‘the timing is right’ for the two of them.

‘Sometimes two people just meet and click, and the timing is right,’ they explained. ‘Renee 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.’
