Love Story of Alexandra Grant and Keanu Reeves


 A known fact about the successful actor is that he has been very closemouthed to his love life. He wishes to maintain his privacy and not gain clout from the ups and downs of his personal life, unlike many other celebrities.

Keanu Reeves suffered a great loss when his pregnant wife, Jennifer Syme, gave birth to a stillborn child in 2000. They broke up a couple of weeks later and Syme passed away in a tragic car crash incident.

After dealing with this immense grief, many believed Reeves would never date again. Until in late 2019, when Reeves made his first public appearance with a new girlfriend, Alexandra Grant. The endearing couple held hands at the LACMA art and film gala and left fans immensely excited. They rocked the red carpet together and looked very much in love. Over the summer, they were also spotted holding hands at a Saint Laurent Fashion Show.

But the two had known each other for many years before they went public with their relationship. Reeves first crossed paths with the 47 years old visual artist in 2009 at a dinner party. They hit it off pretty well and collaborated on two books. An Ode to Happiness in 2011 and Shadows in 2016. The couple is still together in 2020 and has not revealed to the paparazzi exactly when and how their platonic friendship turned in to something more.

Nevertheless, fans wholeheartedly approve of the couple and their wholesome relationship. After all, Keanu has been through a lot we can agree he deserves every bit of happiness.
