Rebel Wilson and Jacob Busch are a match made in heaven — and, her friends are thrilled about it! HollywoodLife has learned the keys to their successful and supportive romance!
The perfect match! Rebel Wilson and Jacob Busch‘s relationship is a carbon copy of a romance she’s always dreamt about. The Pitch Perfect actress, 40, and the businessman, 29, are on the same when it comes to their outlook on life. HollywoodLife has learned that they’ve been bonding over their love for the same things — such as living a healthy lifestyle.
“One thing Rebel loves about dating Jacob is how healthy he is. They push each other in the right direction and working out is one of their favorite things to do together,” a source close to Rebel, who made the romance Instagram official in September, said. But, that doesn’t mean they don’t indulge from time to time. “They’re not obsessive about it though, they still love to Netflix and chill together and order takeout. But overall, they’re very healthy together, it’s a very positive relationship that way because they bring out the best in each other,” the source explained.
It’s no secret that Rebel has dedicated herself to her 2020 “year of health” (she’s already reached her goal weight of 165 lbs.!). And, having Jacob in her life has only aided in her motivation, which is something her inner circle has pleasently noticed. “It’s clear to Rebel’s closest friends that she’s happier than ever and they couldn’t be more thrilled for her,” a second source close to the Cats star said.
“She has always had the most positive attitude, but she can’t stop smiling lately and who could blame her? She’s committed to getting in the best shape of her life and she’s so proud that she stuck with it so far, and accomplished her goal because she feels absolutely incredible,” the source continued, noting that Rebel is “so happy with Jacob” because “he completely supports her, gets along great with her inner circle, and she really couldn’t ask for anything more in a partner.”
Ultimately, “Rebel is very happy with the woman she has become this year both physically, mentally and emotionally,” a third source added. “She has taken the steps to make this a year to do things for herself that benefit herself and she’s very proud of the outcomes that have come from everything.” Now, Rebel’s looking forward to 2021, which she sees as “a continence of all the progress she has achieved in her newfound healthy lifestyle — not a fresh start.”
Rebel has been open about her healthy journey throughout 2020. She’s spent a lot of time doing a variety of workouts including boxing, hiking and even tire-flipping during intense circuits. Fans were so focused on her health success, that they were thrown for a loop when she introduced her new beau to the world. The pair made their red carpet debut as a couple at Prince Albert’s Planetary Health Gala on September 24. And, they’ve been inseparable ever since!
“They have friends in common so right away there was a mutual trust there,” a source close to the Isn’t it Romantic actress told HollywoodLife. “They started hanging out, but then the pandemic happened and suddenly they couldn’t see each other at all [because Rebel was in her native Australia]. But in a weird way, being so far apart helped them get closer because both their lives were slowed way down and they had all this time to really get to know each other.”
