Renee and Ant’s possible new relationship comes just days after Ant finalized his divorce from HGTV star Christina Haack, 37. A source told PEOPLE that the reported new lovebirds bonded over their common interests. “Sometimes two people just meet and click, and the timing is right,” the source says in this week’s issue. “Renée is creative…and often goes for guys who think out of the box. She’s smart, thoughtful and always looking to expand horizons and nurture those around her.”

“Both of them are private and dislike public scrutiny, so they have that in common. He’s a creative guy with lots of interests, and she likes to write and produce, so they have things to talk about when together,” the source continued.
