Renée Zellweger 'ready for marriage and kids'


Renée Zellweger is reportedly ready to have children with her beau. The 45-year-old actress has been quietly dating guitarist Doyle Bramhall II for two years, although they have known each other much longer as they went to college together. It's been claimed the pair are ready to make things more permanent and have been discussing marriage. On top of that, Renée is said to be hoping to become a mother before too long.

'She'd like to conceive naturally, but if that doesn't happen she's open to adoption'

"She'd like to conceive naturally, but if that doesn't happen she's open to adoption. She already has the names of a few agencies," an insider told the American edition of OK! magazine.

The actress and her beau are thought to be moving to Austin, Texas, which is where they met. Renée is apparently completely on board with the relocation and is already planning to sell homes she has in Connecticut and East Hampton so they can afford a spacious new home.

"She thinks Austin will be an ideal place to raise a family, and she can easily commute to Los Angeles for work," the source said. "She's thrilled she's found a man who accepts her for who she is - insecurities, faults and all."

According to the publication the pair will likely tie the knot next spring. They have already thought about where they'd like to say their vows, with Nashville coming out on top. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have a home there and are said to have offered it as a venue for the nuptials, so they can stay intimate and private. Also on the cards is a wedding in New York, which would take place at an inn owned by Richard Gere if it's eventually chosen as the venue.

Last month Renée hit the headlines when she sported a new look at the Elle Women in Hollywood event. Her face appeared different promoting plastic surgery rumours, which the actress soon swept aside.

"I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows," she smiled to People magazine.

"I did work that allows for being still, making a home, loving someone, learning new things, growing as a creative person and finally growing into myself.

"Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I'm happy."
