Florence Pugh’s romance with Zach Braff got a shot in the arm after the Scrubs actor jetted to the UK to wow her parents.

Black Widow actress Flo, 25, has been dating medical comedy star Zach, 46, since 2019. There is a 21-year age gap between the pair.

A source who has known Zach for years tells me: “Zach has this reputation like he’s Charlie Harper on Two and a Half Men – this kind of lazy bachelor with a revolving door of younger women in his life.

“He’s conducting himself completely differently with Florence, and has gone as far as spending time with her family in England earlier this year and moving her into his LA mansion.

“He didn’t do this with other girlfriends – nothing close to that – and he’s making every indication that he’s really ready to settle down, especially now they’ve passed through the gauntlet of working together and getting out the other side without killing each other.

"Of course, Florence is different from every other woman he’s dated in that she has a hot career – hotter than his – and he’s been very supportive and not held her back in the slightest.”

Zach, who has dated a string of beauties including Drew Barrymore, Kirsten Dunst and Mandy Moore, met Florence’s family for the first time in September.

My source reckons the “only thing that’s keeping him from proposing is wanting to know for certain she’ll say yes”.

Florence has previously hit out at trolls who have criticised the pair’s romance, saying: “I do not need you to tell me who I should and should not love.

“I would never in my life, ever, ever tell anyone who they can and cannot love.

“It is not your place and it has nothing to do with you.

“The abuse that you throw at him is abuse that you are throwing at me, and I don’t want those followers.”

Sounds fair enough!
