An ideal match? Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel’s rapid romance caught their admirers off guard, yet it came at the perfect time in both of their lives. In September of 2019, while filming for Carpool Karaoke, the Property Brothers star and the New Girl alum met for the first time and hit it off nearly immediately. Shortly after Deschanel filed for divorce from her marriage of four years, Jacob Pechenik, Us Weekly confirmed the tale of the improbable romance. Ex-spouses Elsie Otter and Charlie Wolf have a child together.
Scott told Us a day before their relationship was made public, “I am seeing someone.” I’m an extremely reserved individual, therefore I don’t usually broach topics like that. It’s more meaningful to me because I’m the one raising the standard for what I want in a life mate. To be honest, I was taken aback by it. That came as a very pleasant surprise.
In October of 2019, following a terrifying double date with Drew Scott and his wife Linda Phan, Scott and the 500 Days of Summer actress made their relationship Instagram official. After braving Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, Jonathan and his new flame shared a PDA photo. When the two initially met, a source told Us that they had “immediate chemistry” and that they bonded over their mutual appreciation for “music, \
film, theatre — and Christmas carols.” They hit it off right away because they shared similar interests and a good sense of humour, and their “texting and talking on the phone and it developed from there.” Their love has only grown stronger since then, and they have celebrated several significant relationship milestones together. The pair who originally made their red carpet debut on HGTV and She & Him spent their first Thanksgiving together shortly after. They celebrated “a genuinely wonderful New Year” together a month later. Jonathan captioned a cute selfie for 2020 with the words, “Once in a lifetime you find someone who changes everything.” Read on to learn more about this fast-paced romance.
Fresh fires! In an exclusive interview with Us, the home improvement expert said that his romance with the Elf actress came as “a pleasant surprise” after the two met while recording Carpool Karaoke with their siblings. It’s very meaningful to me since I’m the one who sets the standard high for what I want in a life partner, he said. “That took me by surprise a little bit.”
It’s like having two dates in one! Jonathan and the ex-New Girl cast member attended a filming of Dancing With the Stars with Jonathan’s twin brother Drew Scott and Drew’s wife Linda Phan. A viewer claims that the new couple “looked quite comfortable together” after observing that “Jonathan moved his chair closer to Zooey and put his arm around her while he murmured closely in her ear” during the performance.
After dating for a month, the HGTV star and the star of Yes Man made their romance Instagram official. Deschanel leaped into Jonathan’s arms as they posed for a Halloween-themed portrait with Drew and his wife. “The party we had last night was fantastic. It wasn’t me who screamed so loudly.” To put it simply, Jonathan wrote the caption.
Cozying up to the family! Deschanel was “overjoyed” to attend the Las Vegas celebration of her new boyfriend’s older brother J.D. Scott’s marriage. This is the first time I’ve ever been cat-woman escorted to a fancy dress party wedding by Batman,” the Almost Famous actress captioned an Instagram image in the days leading up to the wedding. I was thrilled to be a part of the festivities honouring this beautiful and kind couple.
Indulging in some quality time with the clan. Deschanel was “overjoyed” to attend the wedding of her new boyfriend’s older brother, J.D. Scott, in Las Vegas. The Almost Famous star wrote in the caption of a wedding-related Instagram image, “It’s the first time I’ve ever been cat-woman led to a fancy dress party wedding by Batman.” I am so pleased for you two, and it was my pleasure to attend your wedding.
The She and Him vocalist gushed about her man on his 42nd birthday, saying, “This great guy makes me sincerely happy every day and fills my life with love and joy.” “You stand out as exceptional in a truly unique way. It makes me joy to bake you a birthday cake.” On the same episode of the “At Home With Linda & Drew Scott” podcast, the couple talked about the day they met each other’s families, went on their first date, and filmed their Carpool Karaoke episode.

According to the show’s producer, “I was flirting so hard that they had to clip a bunch of that out,” the HGTV star laughed. My intent was to appear charming and gentlemanly.
Scott marked their first year of marriage by posting an endearing video of their time together, complete with images, set to a soothing instrumental soundtrack. He captioned the photo on Instagram, “How time flies when you’re having the best time of your life.” Who knew that a year ago today, everything would alter in my life. I always think of you twice as I tally up my good fortune.
