Meet the parents: Renee Zellweger shares a special moment with Bradley Cooper's dad

Since the start of their romance in the summer of 2009, Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper have quietly and quickly settled into a serious relationship.

And in that time, the actress has also cultivated a strong bond with the A-Team star's parents; taking mother Gloria to a glitzy fashion do as her special guest earlier this year, and even spending last Christmas with the Cooper family.

It seems her considerable charm is not lost on Bradley's father either.

The Bridget Jones beauty, 41, was seen with her arm wrapped around Charlie Cooper in New York this week as she and her beau joined his parents for a low-key lunch in the city.

Perhaps there was much to discuss between Bradley, Renee and her potential in-laws.

According to reports in the US, the Oscar winner was seen browsing in a Caroline Herrera boutique where a number of bridal gowns were on display, sparking speculation the couple are preparing to tie the knot.

Renee was previously married to country singer Kenny Chesney, a union that was annulled after just four months in 2005, while Bradley was wed to Spin City actress Jennifer Esposito. That marriage also came to an end four months later.

But whether wedding bells are on the horizon or not for the couple, one thing is sure. Renee has already been welcomed into Bradley's family with open arms.
