Rebel Wilson Reveals She Started Dating Boyfriend Before Her ‘Year of Health’

Rebel Wilson has opened up about her relationship with Jacob Busch. The actress has talked about her ‘Year of Health’ journey. She opened up in an Instagram Live session as she revealed that she had started dating before changing her lifestyle.

The Pitch Perfect alum read one of the questions from one of the users, “Someone’s asking me if ‘the hot guy on your Instagram is your boyfriend.” She responded by saying it is correct and shared that Jacob is a private person so she does not like to give away too much.

Rebel, however, shared that they dated before she started her health journey. She had a point as she addressed all the ladies saying they don’t have to be a certain size to get a boyfriend. The actor went public with her relationship with Jacob back in September as she shared an adorable picture of themselves.

Jacob is part of the Anheuser-Busch brewing dynasty. The actress shared the picture of her and Jacob along with Helen Mirren and Kate Beckinsale. Not only that, the couple went ahead to make their red carpet debut after they attended a Gala in Monte-Carlo for Planetary Health.

The couple has since then given little bits of their relationship with social media posts. Back in October, Rebel and Jacob went on a trip to Mexico as the actress posted shirtless pictures of her man on Instagram.

“This is the first guy she’s met who is a match for her humor and personality. Someone who has his own life and success and isn’t intimidated by her,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “He’s entrepreneurial and they’re both very business-minded.”

“I was also freezing my eggs because — as all good, career women out there should note”

The source also revealed that Jacob is also health-conscious and the couple has been motivating each other with their health journey. According to the source, he is a gentleman and has very old school manners, and treats her well. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the couple has stayed indoors most of the time.

Although Rebel did share that the couple still finds ways to have date nights. “Well, right now because it’s gotten so cozy, I’ll put on the fire, and we just eat at my house,” she said. “I’m just all cozied up. We normally order in something, and then just cozy up, because it’s just that time of year.”

The actress also revealed her thought about fertility. She shared that she started focusing on her health when she felt she wasn’t going to work much that year. The Pitch Perfect alum revealed that she knew she had more time and she also froze her eggs. She said, “I was also freezing my eggs because — as all good, career women out there should note — that if that’s something that interests you, it’s a pretty good time to do it.”

Rebel revealed that she thought about having good quality eggs in the bank and she did it. The actress revealed that she went to a professional place to detox. She revealed she booked her stay at Austria’s VivaMayr which a wellness center. Their aim is to help their clients to reduce their sugar and gluten intake.

They also encourage whole foods with high alkaline content like vegetables, fresh fish, and sheep’s milk yogurt. The actress revealed that she is feeling a lot better after her trip and decided to change her eating and exercising habits.

“The goal was never to be skinny.”

“I wrote a little letter to myself about how I’m really gonna give it my all this year, and then I did,” she said. Rebel revealed she has achieved her end-of-year goal of getting down to about 165 lbs.

“Am I glad that I did it? Yeah,” she said. “The goal was never to be skinny. It was never to fit into a certain dress size. I put in a goal weight in there because I needed some tangible thing.” The actress revealed how glad she is about doing it as she shared she has been overweight for 20 years.

She shared that she is proud of herself as she did that and has a lot more balance in her life. Earlier this year, Wilson opened up to PEOPLE about her journey, saying, “It’s about: I was doing some unhealthy things to my body and I just wanted to change it and become a healthier person.”
