Awww! They had us at "hello"!
Renée Zellweger and her pretty new boy-toy Doyle Bramhall II were spotted shopping at Abbott Kinney in Venice Beach over the long holiday weekend and their cuteness was OFF the charts!
We haven't read any passages from Bridget Jones' diary recently, but we bet the 43-year-old leading lady and her handsome new hunk cozied up by the fire and exchanged
romantic gifts bodily fluids on Christmas!
Doyle is a guitarist and singer for the group Arc Angels, which isn't entirely surprising considering her fondness for musicians!
Though we're sure Renée is grateful that Doyle, unlike his predecessor Kenny Chesney, doesn't cover his purdy face with a cowboy hat!!
Congratulations, you two! We can't wait to see what the new year brings you!

Aw! Come on, Brit Brit! You know you love your Louisiana boy AND his “black boy tan!” Ha!
Though his audition definitely proved to be better than last night’s performance, Willie still made it through for another chance at $5 million!
