After a heartbreaking year things are finally looking up for Zoe Ball – as she’s just got the thumbs up on her new relationship from ex-husband Fatboy Slim and her kids.
The 47-year-old presenter has reportedly introduced new man, Michael Reed, to ex hubby Norman Cook and their children Woody, 16, and Nelly, seven.
And the meet and greet was a total hit.
Zoe was left crushed earlier this year when her boyfriend Billy Yates committed suicide.
But after a string of successful dates with businessman Michael Reed, Zoe is starting to smile once again.
A source told The Sun that this new union looks like it could be the real deal, seeing as Zoe has wanted her family’s approval so soon.
“It shows things are getting serious,” the source said. “Zoe’s family are so important to her. Zoe has remained very close to Norman and he has been a rock to her through everything.”
And the fact that Norman and the kids genuinely liked Michael so much makes things much easier for Zoe.
“For her family to want to spend time with them as a couple is just the icing on the cake after she has found happiness again. She’s over the moon they approve.”
However, Zoe is still clearly upset by the passing of her late boyfriend Billy as she paid tribute to ‘loved ones up in the stars’ on Christmas Eve.
In an emotional social media post the presenter wrote: ‘Candle lit in the window for our loved ones up in the stars. Always in our hearts beautiful ones, missing you all muchly especially at this time of year when we want our nearest & dearest close.’
‘Feeling grateful to be surrounded by love. Sending out some prayers & thoughts to those most needing them this Christmas. Peace & Love to all #merrychristmas #gratitude #healing #love #shootingstars #angels’.
