Ant Anstead and Renée Zellweger are decamping to the UK

The Radford Reborn host, 45, is planning to temporarily relocate from Southern California to his native London to be with the Judy actress, 54, while she films the fourth installment of the Bridget Jones’s Diary series, a source tells PEOPLE.

“Ant is going over to the UK with Renée while she is filming [Bridge Jones’s Diary 4] later this year,” the source says. “Ant is excited to spend time with his older kiddos.”

The British-born car expert shares daughter Amelie, 20, and son Archie, 17, with his first wife Louise Storey. They live in the UK while his 4-year-old son Hudson, who he shares with ex-wife Christina Hall, lives in California.

Zellweger will reprise her iconic role as Bridget Jones in the franchise’s fourth film, which follows the previous releases Bridget Jones’s Baby (2016), Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004) and the original Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001).

During an April 2022 interview on Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle ShowZellweger expressed that she’s eager to play Bridget Jones again in as the character is “so much fun.”

The film also has a comical place in Anstead and Zellweger’s relationship history: Before they met on their discovery+ show Celebrity IOU: Joyride In 2021, Anstead thought the actress was actually British because of her iconic role. Her reaction to the news she’s from Texas is included in the episode that sparked their romance.

Although Anstead will make the temporary move back to London with his award-winning actress girlfriend, the couple — who have been in a relationship for nearly three years — already have a place together in Orange County.

In April 2023, a source revealed to PEOPLE that the pair had “found a house that they both love and are moving in together” after Anstead decided to sell their beloved Temple House in Laguna Beach, Calif. that same month.

“Temple is sold,” he confirmed to PEOPLE at the time. He added that the off-market sale “came at the right time, for another property and a change in my personal life that I’m really pleased about. So I was like, yeah. I made the call there and then.”

Ant Anstead reshared his friend’s post to his Instagram Story in February.
