Rebel Wilson and Jacob Bausch are dating and the pandemic helped bloom their romance.
Rebel Wilson is dating Anheuser Bausch heir Jacob Bausch and is beyond happy if sources are to be believed. They met last year in Los Angeles but it took time for things to get serious.
Wilson kicked off 2020 by calling it the year of health. She’s stayed committed to her goal for the past nine months and she’s now fitter than ever — and loving it. “She’s had a pretty great life and now everything is working out,” a source close to the Australian actress says. “She is healthy and happy and she thinks she is dreaming with all her good fortune with Jacob. She really is happy and nothing is that problematic for her right now.”
“Rebel and Jacob met last year in Los Angeles. They have friends in common so right away there was a mutual trust there. They started hanging out, but then the pandemic happened and suddenly they couldn’t see each other at all with Rebel being in Australia. In a weird way being so far apart helped them get closer as both their lives were slowed way down. They had all this time to really get to know each other.”
“Rebel and Jacob talked nearly every day, even with the crazy time difference and he really proved himself to be reliable,” the source informed.
“Rebel is beyond happy as she really appreciates how supportive he is and of course he’s very easy on the eyes too. They’re having so much fun together and everyone’s hoping that this will last, because Rebel has never been happier.”
Rebel’s friends are extremely happy for her, says another source. “Rebel’s closest friends are super happy for her and can tell that she really likes Jacob. She has a newfound confidence in herself and to see how happy she is makes them thrilled for her. Rebel has a heart of gold and is always there for her friends, so it means the world to them to see her just as happy and to put herself first because she deserves it. They have hung out with Jacob and get along great with him. They see how happy he makes Rebel and wish nothing but the best for them.”
It took a while for Rebel to make her relationship with Jacob Instagram official but when she finally took the plunge on September 24, she did in style.
The Pitch Perfect star shared an adorable series of photos of her trip to Monaco with fellow actresses and she had Jacob by her side for the holiday.
