Rebel Wilson reveals heartbreaking reason she still hasn't met fiancée's parents after years of dating

Rebel Wilson reveals heartbreaking reason she still hasn't met fiancée's parents after years of dating

Rebel Wilson and Ramona Agruma went public with their relationship in June 2022

Actress Rebel Wilson has revealed the heartbreaking reason she is yet to meet her fiancée Ramona Agruma's parents.

The Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect star, 44, has enjoyed a fairytale romance with her partner Agruma, 40.

The couple went public about their relationship in June 2022 and got engaged a couple of months later.

They also welcomed their first child together, a baby girl named Royce Lillian Elizabeth Wilson, in November 2022, via surrogate.

However not everyone in their respective families has been accepting of the union, with Rebel revealing to Today that she is yet to meet all of Ramona's family.

During the interview, the actress explained that Ramona is originally from the country Latvia and that many people in the country still hold conservative reviews towards LGBTQ relationships.

"Ramona was born in Latvia, and it's not as LGBTQ+ friendly as other countries are," Rebel explained.

"I just think some people need a bit more time - and some people won't ever come around to it, and that's fine, and that's their decision.

"There are still parts of the world that aren't as accepting."

However Rebel went on to add that she is hopeful of building a relationship with Ramona's family, revealing that the couple are planning to head over to the European country in the near future.

"I'm really excited to meet them because I know they are very smart. Ramona's mother is a doctor," she said, adding that the family have already seen their 19-month-old daughter on FaceTime.

"Roycie is the real icebreaker. They've been FaceTiming with her."

The admission comes after Rebel previously revealed the reactions from family members to their relationship during an interview with BBC4's Desert Island Discs programme.

"I'm lucky in my case, even though I come from a very conservative background, it went very, very well," she said.

"My grandparents, who are in their 90s, just so chilled and cool with it"

However she went on to add that Ramona hasn't had the same experience from all of her family.

"Ramona's family, not as much. Her mum has luckily come around now, her father still doesn't talk to her, but we're hoping that will change," she added.

The actress also expressed her gratitude to Ramona's acceptance of her IVF plans, revealing she had already been planning to have a child when they met.

"I'd already been planning to use a surrogate to have a child and I'd done several rounds of IVF and I had one embryo transfer, which sadly didn't work. Almost right at meeting Ramona, I was planning on the second embryo transfer, and I was like, 'Babe I don't know how to tell you this, but I'm going to have a child kind of around November'," she recalled.

"Ramona just looked at me and said, 'Well, I love you and if you have a child, I'm going to love your child exactly the same way."
