It's the first time they've been photographed together.

Rumored new (and unlikely) couple Renée Zellweger and Ant Anstead were spotted together for the very first time, and there are pictures to prove it. Following what appeared to be an overnight date at the HGTV star's oceanfront home in Laguna Beach on Friday, the pair shared a morning coffee together on the balcony of his beach house.

In photos obtained exclusively by The Daily Mail, Zellweger was snapped wearing her pajamas and with her hair pulled back in a pink scrunchie. She went makeup-free while holding a mug that read "Home Is Where Dad Is" in one hand, and her iPhone in the other. Anstead stood close next the actress, and was dressed in a black T-shirt and gray sweatpants.

Last week, reports began to surface about how Zellweger and Anstead's professional relationship unexpectedly turned romantic. Sources say that they met on the Discovery+ series, Celebrity IOU: Joyride, and after the project wrapped, Zellweger returned to set to return a pair of boots — and soon, the two began to date.

"Sometimes two people just meet and click, and the timing is right," an insider previously told People. "Renée 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." The source added, "Both of them are private and dislike public scrutiny, so they have that in common. He's a creative guy with lots of interests, and she likes to write and produce, so they have things to talk about when together."

Zellweger was last linked to musician Doyle Bramhall II in 2019, while Anstead finalized his divorce from Flip or Flop star Christina Haack this month.
