Enquirer: Renée Zellweger and Doyle Bramhall are getting married

Well, Renée Zellweger is a singleton no more. The 48-year-old actress is set to walk down the aisle with her blues guitarist beau, Doyle Bramhall, who is also 48.

The couple have been together since 2012, but cited schedule conflicts as a reason that they’ve waited so long to make it legal. Renée was married (briefly) to country singer Kenny Chesney and Doyle was also married to frequent Prince collaborator Susannah Melvoin (sister to Wendy Melvoin, of Wendy and Lisa fame) before his relationship with Renée.

A source told the National Enquirer that “Doyle’s proposed to Renée so many times that even she’s lost count! But she’s finally gotten over her fears. Renée and Doyle are deeply in love and their feelings have only gotten stronger.”

As for the wedding, which sources say won’t be happening unit fall at the earliest, the couple plans on having a small dinner party and a honeymoon in Europe. Renée and Doyle will do some wedding planning in Germany, where she will be working on a new project, the romantic anthology film Berlin, I Love You.

Mild spoiler for Bridget Jones’ Baby
One project Renée would love to work on is a fourth movie in the Bridget Jones franchise. When asked by US Magazine about the series at the Greenwich International Film Festival in Connecticut earlier this month, Renee said of the possibility of revisiting the role, “Selfishly I hope so!” She added, “She’s a lot of fun!” I’m not a huge fan of the series, but there’s definitely enough material for another film. Fans surely want to see Bridget endure the trials and tribulations of motherhood and, as the Huffington Post noted (spoiler in link), the last film left open the possibility of Hugh Grant’s character returning.

Renée is also reportedly looking to do some work behind the camera, telling US, “I have something that I’m going to do this summer that I haven’t done before and so I’m looking forward to that.” And, when asked if that “something” was directing, she replied, “Yeah, we’ll see. We’ll see how that goes. We’ll see what happens!” I always like to share good news around here, so I have nothing but good wishes for these two.

    Aw, great news. All the best to them.

    I’ll always have a soft spot for Renee. Congrats to the happy couple!

    I did a Bridget jones marathon this weekend and it was disturbing how much her face has changed. By the third film whole sections didn’t move as she just looked bizarre. It made me sad for her.

  5. Jess says:

    Why did she stop working so much? She was a good actress. I mean I know she got older but people like Kidman and Rachel Weiz are in the same age bracket and never stopped.

      I think Renee’s a great actress, I tend to think she overdid it on the plastic surgery and hardly looks like herself anymore. I could see that turning off casting directors. Nicole overdoes the Botox, but it’s been a slow evolution and she still looks like herself. Renee looks like a real housewife now.

      • Nancy says:

        It should be a lesson learned for woman who want to push time back. It doesn’t always work. A story can’t be printed about Renee without her botched up surgery taking over. She’s sailing in the same boat as Meg Ryan, Courtney Cox to name a couple. She seems happy now, but they couldn’t find time for marriage in five years together because of their busy schedules….she must be working underground…lol

      • Esmom says:

        Hm, I disagree, I think Nicole looks much more overdone and waxen than Renee does. And Renee is nowhere in Courtney Cox territory either. I tend to think she’s either consciously stepped back from work or she just hasn’t been offered roles but that her face isn’t the problem.

      • Janet R says:

        I think she looks more like herself now than she did. I’m happy for these two – they look good together!

    She had to kiss a lot of frogs ( I empathize) to get here. I’ve always had a soft spot for her…
    Love his devil may care, hair!

  7. minx says:

    Congrats; they are a handsome couple.

  8. OTHER RENEE says:

    I think she’s beautiful. And I have a lot of trouble looking at Nicole’s frozen waxen face without wincing at what she’s done.

  9. CityGirl says:

    Awww, I am happy for them both!

  10. Penelope says:

    Good for them. He’s cute!

  11. Andrea says:

    I always wondered what the fraud was regarding Kenny Chesney.

  12. HoustonGrl says:

    I loved Bridget Jones’ baby! I thought it was hilarious, and I vote yay on another movie.

  13. Mylene says:

    How many times a year she marry somebody ?
