Reeves' most important relationship was with actress Jennifer Syme. They started dating in 1998 and in 1999 Syme became pregnant with their daughter, Ava.

Who is Keanu's new girlfriend Alexandra Grant?
Alexandra Grant, based in Los Angeles, is an artist and philanthropist. Alexandra, born in Ohio, has graduated from Swarthmore College since 1994 with a BA in history and studio art.
The artist, 46, is known for her use of language and exchanges with writers as a source for imagery in her sculpture, painting, drawing and video works.
The talented artist cherished her love for the spoken word as a child after growing up all over the world and living in Mexico, Spain and France.
She has exhibited in prestigious spaces around the world, including Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Galerie Gradiva in Paris and The Harris Lieberman Gallery in New York.
In 2008, Alexandra founded the philanthropic grantLOVE project, which produces and sells original artworks and editions for artist projects and non-profit organizations.
Alexandra and Keanu have a history that goes back years and in 2011 they worked together for the first time on the picture book of an adult, Ode to Happiness.
The book was a success and led the poet-artist duo to compile their second book, Shadows, in 2016, while Grant Reeves photographed while filming John Wick.
Since then, the two have been spotted together at art galleries, signings, posed for Vogue Spain and even traveled to Germany to work together.
Speaking of collaborating on their second book, Grant told W Magazine: & # 39; We can spend a lot of time debating. Like, & # 39; A raspberry hue? And should it be darker? & # 39; We can become obsessive. & # 39;
Shadows is composed of dark silhouette images by Reeves made by Grant and poetry written by the Matrix actor.
Grant told the LA Times of her employee: & # 39; Nobody can move as they can. He is a really extreme performer.
& # 39; That's a huge piece why those images are so interesting. I knew that if I moved the camera while we were dancing together, as a photographer and subject, we could create these beautiful optical illusions. & # 39;
The two founded publisher X Artists & # 39; Books in 2017, with a focus on & # 39; unusual collaborations & # 39; and books that & # 39; don't really have a place because they are in genres & # 39 ;.
