Renee Zellweger to meet the parents

LOS ANGELES: Renee Zellweger is to meet her boyfriend Bradley Cooper's parents.

Hollywood hunk Bradley - who has been dating his 'Case 39' co-star since earlier this year - has dispelled rumours the couple have split and has decided to make their relationship "serious" and introduce the screen beauty to his family.

A source said: "Things have been heading in this direction for the two of them for a while, but this definitely solidifies how serious they are."

Renee - who had her 2005 marriage to singer Kenny Chesney annulled - is anxious to impress Bradley's mother Gloria and father Charlie.

The source explained to the New York Daily News newspaper: "She says she's nervous, and she's really hoping it goes well. But she's very excited.

"It's quite serious. Renee and Bradley are crazy about each other. For both their sake, I certainly hope Gloria likes her."

It was reported over the weekend the 34-year-old actor had separated from Renee after growing close to movie producer Holly Wiersma.
