Renee Zellweger has been pictured with new love Damien Rice for the first time - confirming rumours they are enjoying a romance. The Oscar-winning beauty and the Irish singer, who began secretly dating last month, were snapped having a coffee together in Los Angeles. A source said: "They looked very at ease. She was dressed down, not star like at all - which is what Damien likes about her." However, the smitten pair are keen to keep their relationship low-key and, in a bid to stay out of the limelight, Damien refused to accompany Renee to last month's Oscars, preferring to watch it on television at her Hollywood home. A source close to the couple said: "He's been staying with her since February, but it's all very low-key. They have been avoiding the whole Los Angeles scene, preferring to keep to themselves." Last month, it was claimed Renee - who split from White Stripes frontman Jack White last September - had visited Damien's family in his home city of Dublin.
While she was there, she was also spotted house-hunting - sparking speculation she wanted to move closer to her new beau.
