Keanu Reeves is one of the most loved and popular actors in Hollywood. Every role that he’s played so far has gained immense popularity, and fans go crazy whenever he appears on the big screen.
Reeves is famous for acting in blockbuster movies like John Wick, Speed, Point Break, The Matrix, The Lake House, The Replacements, Exposed, Constantine, Man of Tai Chi, and Replicas.
In April 2022, rumors circulated that The Matrix star secretly proposed to his girlfriend, Alexandra Grant, as reported by sources close to the couple. These rumors were only given further credence because Reeves had been spotted shopping for diamond rings in Los Angeles back on March 31st.
Before the engagement rumors, a friend that was close to the couple told OK! Magazine: “Keanu isn’t hiding the fact that he’s going to propose to Alexandra.”
And after the rumors started swirling around, the same source said: “Keanu popped the question after they returned home from Europe, where he was filming back-to-back movies, and she was there the whole time to support him.”
The duo first met in 2011 and like his other life affairs, Keanu kept his relationship with Grant extremely private until 2019 when they made their first public appearance as a couple.
“Reeves took Grant to the LACMA Art + Film Gala in 2019. They walked the red carpet holding hands, sparking romantic rumors,” Elle Magazine reported.
In March 2020, Grant spoke to Vogue and shared that her friendship with Keanu started when she gifted him a book in 2011.
“The book was made as a surprise, by me, for Keanu, as a private gift. All our friends sitting in the room got the giggles when I gave it to him — they said, ‘Please publish it!’ So that’s how we got into publishing,” she said.
According to Insider, “Ode to Happiness’ is a playful guide to climbing out of depression that combines text by Reeves with drawings by Grant. They later followed it up with a sequel, called Shadows.”
Speaking to Vogue, the Los Angeles based artist further said that she deeply valued her relationship with the John Wick actor.
“I think every single person I knew called me in the first week of November, and that’s fascinating. But the question I’ve been asking in all of this is: ‘What is the opportunity for good?’”
“Love at every level is deeply important to my identity… I do not believe that isolation is the way,” Grant said. “There is a period of isolation that I do as a painter, but I deeply value the experience of being in relationships.”
In July 2022, Reeves and Grant were spotted enjoying a date night in New York.
According to Elle, “The couple went out looking elegant, but comfortable. Reeves was wearing a black t-shirt with a blazer in a dark grey that matched his slacks, paired with brown leather shoes. Grant wore a sleeveless navy blue dress that stopped just above her ankles, showing off her sandals covered in small gold beading.”
In 2006, Reeves told Parade Magazine that he wanted to get married and have kids; however, he’ll need some time before settling down with the right person.
“I’m trying not to be alone so much,” he said. “And man, it’s a struggle. I want to get married. I want to have kids. That’s at the top of the mountain. I’ve got to climb the mountain first. I’ll do it. Just give me some time.”
