The 'John Wick' star, 57, is already prepared with the ring and the proposal speech, but “just can't follow through it”, a source close to the Hollywood star told Radar Online, adding "he also worries about jinxing something that's already so perfect." Reeves and the visual artist, 49, are said to have first met at a dinner party in 2009 before sharing a platonic relationship in 2011, when their debut book ‘Ode to Happiness’ was released, according to People.

Reeves and Grant "get along so well," noted the insider. "It's been so much fun hanging out because she's so cool and intellectual. She constantly astounds him." As for what's causing his trepidation, the source said, "It's really all in his head. No one but Keanu really thinks she'll say no." "Alexandra thinks the world of him," the tipster continued. "They've been inseparable these past few years. She's accompanied him on his shoots, including Berlin for The Matrix 4, and she's been a tireless supporter of his other endeavors, like his writing and music. He just needs to build up his confidence — and shake those jitters.”

Year after keeping their relationship under wraps, the ‘Matrix’ star and Grant made their relationship official in 2019 when they made their red carpet 'debut' at the LACMA Art + Film Gala presented by Gucci in Los Angeles. It's worth noting that besides their debut book, the pair has also collaborated on multiple projects, including 2016's 'Shadows', which was also written by Reeves and featured illustrations by Grant. They even opened their own publishing company, X Artists Books, pre-romance.

Following Grant's debut with Reeves, she told Vogue that she felt mixed emotions about her decision to publicize her relationship. "I think every single person I knew called me in the first week of November, and that's fascinating, but the question I've been asking in all of this is: 'What is the opportunity for good,'" she said.
