Ant Anstead spends a romantic evening with his girlfriend Renée Zellweger.

While the pair have mostly kept their relationship low-key, the HGTV alum, 43, proudly showed his love for the Oscar-winning actress, 53, in an Instagram post on Friday, in which the two appear to be dancing to a outdoor patio under the night sky as they stare into each other’s eyes.

“Always pausing for moments of magic under twinkling lights…❤️💫x,” Anstead wrote in the caption.

In the sweet snap, the pair are dressed for a night out, with Anstead wearing a gray suit and white Converse sneakers, and Zellweger wearing a long blazer, black dress and metallic stilettos.

After Anstead shared the sweet tribute to Zellwegger, many admired the adorable photo, including Secret Celebrity Makeover host Nischelle Turner, who posted a series of red hearts in the comments section.

While the British-born car expert rarely posts photos of himself with the movie star, who he started dating in June 2021, he often gives her subtle nods on his social media.

Earlier in January, the Celebrity IOU Joyride the host also gave a little insight into the Judy actress when he shared Instagram snaps from a vacation trip to the UK

In a post, fans pointed out that Zellweger was wearing his favorite orange University of Texas baseball cap and green cargo pants in the background of a photo of Anstead’s 3-year-old son Hudson (whom he shares with his ex-wife Christina Hall) learning how to play cricket. “It is simply my parental duty to teach Hudzo British sports,” Anstead captioned the post.

In a different post from the same trip, another user noticed the actress made a brief appearance in a video of a “walk in the woods” Anstead took with her two older children, Amélie, 19, and Archie, 16.

“Renée for the holiday win!! 😍 Always recognize this cap,” the follower wrote, referring to the same orange hat the actress wore in previous snaps.

He also alluded to Zellweger in his Thanksgiving post and in a snapshot of his Christmas tree, which was decorated with British and Norwegian flags — the latter a nod to the actress’ legacy.
