Everyone, including an unexpected duo, the Property Brothers, seemed to be cheering for Renée Zellweger and Ant Anstead to get together. Drew and Jonathan Scott have stated that they were responsible for arranging for Zellweger and Anstead to meet and fall in love. And all of their hard work paid off!
“Actually, directly responsible.”
The Scott brothers sat down with ExtraTV on April 14, 2022, to discuss everything from Drew’s approaching fatherhood to Jonathan’s love for GF Zooey Deschanel’s Vanity Fair gown. While we enjoyed the entire conversation, this new piece of information about one of our favourite celebrity couples has us in tears. “You’re indirectly responsible for Renée Zellweger meeting Ant Anstead?” the interviewer began the question. “Actually, directlyresponsible.” Jonathan said, correcting her.
Drew added, “Yeah, so Celebrity IOU Joyride was actually not just about a car show giving back to people. That was actually an undercover dating show to find Ant, the love of his life.”
Zellweger wanted to go on Celebrity IOU after seeing Brad Pitt on an episode, but instead agreed to guest feature in the spinoff Celebrity IOU Joyride, according to the interview. She met Anstead after that, and the rest is history.
