Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon: Birthday Romance

Reese Witherspoon, 32, and Jake Gyllenhaal were spotted having a cozy, three-hour dinner in the romantic setting of Santa Monica’s Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi on Friday evening.

The occasion? Not that they need one, but they were celebrating Jake’s 28th birthday.

Jake and his lady friend met on the set of Rendition in 2007 and have been an item since. The couple shared champagne, wine and a sumptuous dessert of tiramisu. And held hands at the table, according to Us.

But the million-dollar question is—did Jake take the opportunity during this romantic scene to ask for Reese’s hand in marriage?

Extra reports that, despite all sorts of romantic ambiance, no engagement ring was to be found. Awww…

Reese appears to still not be ready for marriage, since she divorced her pap battlin’ ex Ryan Phillippe in 2006.

But she is ready to share Jakey G with her kids for the holidays. Gyllenhaal will reportedly spend Christmas with Reese, Ava, 9, and Deacon, 5, before flying back to Europe to finish shooting his new film Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, a 6th century, sword and sorcery fantasy epic.
