During her December 2 Instagram Live session with her fans, Rebel Wilson opened up about her “year of health” throughout 2020 and shared a number of updates and insights with her nearly 10 million followers. Although many of the questions the Pitch Perfect star, 40, got from fans related to her healthy weight loss journey, she did receive a question or two about the man in her life — Jacob Busch. “Someone’s asking me is the hot guy on your Instagram your boyfriend,” Rebel said in the last few minutes of her video.

“Yes, yes that is correct,” the actress confirmed to those tuning in. But out of respect for her beloved partner, Rebel decided to tell fans that he’s “a very private person, so don’t like to give away too much in that department.” However, Rebel used the opportunity to offer her thoughtful perspective on dating. “I will say we dated before I started any of this health journey, as well as now. So, goes to show you ladies you don’t have to be a certain size to get a boyfriend,” she said.

Over the course of the last few months, Rebel’s Instagram feed has featured the actress with Jacob on dates, taking a dip in the pool, and even getting spooky for some fun Halloween festivities. The star, who noted that her beau is a very private person, hasn’t been shy when it comes to showing her fans just how happy and confident she’s become during this pivotal chapter in her life. She also completely reiterated that during her Instagram Live session!

Rebel really took the time to encourage everyone who watched her Instagram Live to fully embrace their most authentic selves. “Never ever feel bad about your size,” she told viewers. “Beauty can be at any size and that’s what I’m a big proponent of.” The actress, who has been documenting her healthy weight loss journey over the past year on Instagram, has really shown fans a different side of herself, and that includes her romantic life!

But more than anything, Rebel is so proud of what this journey has meant to her. “I’m actually proud of myself for not crying while talking about this because sometimes it can be a really emotional thing talking about health,” Rebel confessed. “It makes me sad sometimes but I didn’t value myself enough to be healthy and to treat myself with respect and that’s kind of really sad. But, you know what, no regrets. I have an amazing freaking life and I’m sure you guys can tell from what I post I live life to the fullest. Life is short; you’ve got to just go for it!”
