“Love at every level is deeply important to my identity," Grant previously said.
Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant enjoyed a night out in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 15, complete with a dose of PDA. The couple, who mostly keep their relationship private and quiet, clasped hands as they walked on the red carpet for the MOCA Gala, sharing an adorable kiss at one point.
Grant donned a red flowery dress to the gala sponsored in support of the Museum of Contemporary Art, while Reeves wore a black suit with a red and navy striped tie, per TODAY.

Their delightful night out comes shortly after Reeves, 58, talked about his relationship with Grant, 50, in an interview with PEOPLE. In response to a question about his "last moment of bliss," the John Wick: Chapter 4 star referenced a moment with his longtime love Grant. “A couple of days ago with my honey,” he shared. “We were in bed. We were connected. We were smiling and laughing and giggling. Feeling great. It was just really nice to be together," he added.
Grant and Reeves have been dating for a long time. The two, who had been close friends for more than ten years first connected over dinner in 2009. In 2011, the couple first collaborated to publish an adult picture book called Ode to Happiness. But Grant had originally intended it to be just a personal gift to Reeves. “The book was made as a surprise, by me, for Keanu, as a private gift,” Grant told British Vogue. “All our friends sitting in the room got the giggles when I gave it to him – they said, ‘Please publish it!’ So that’s how we got into publishing.” After publishing Ode to Happiness, the couple went on to found an independent publishing business called, X Artists' Books.

The couple made waves online when they first made a public appearance together on the red carpet in 2019 at the LACMA Art + Film Gala. Reeves, even then looking at Grant adorably, was seen holding hands with her in the pictures taken during the occasion, and the photos instantly went viral online.
Grant shared that it was extremely overwhelming. “I think every single person I knew called me in the first week of November, and that’s fascinating,” she said wryly.
For Grant, relationships are extremely important, and when asked if marriage is on the table, she responded, “Over a glass of wine… I would love to tell you,” with a laugh. “Love at every level is deeply important to my identity. How’s that for dodging the question? I do not believe that isolation is the way. There is a period of isolation that I do as a painter, but I deeply value the experience of being in relationships,” she added.
