Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel first met while filming for ‘Carpool Karaoke’ in September 2019, and hit it off almost instantly
“I am seeing someone,” reality tv star Jonathan Scott told ‘Us Weekly’ one day before the news of his relationship with ‘New Girl’ alum Zooey Deschanel went public. “I’m a very private person, so I don’t typically talk about that. It’s definitely special for me because I am the guy who raises the bar in what I’m looking for in a partner. I was caught a little off guard. It was definitely a pleasant surprise.”
Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel first met while filming for ‘Carpool Karaoke’ in September 2019, and hit it off almost instantly. ‘Us Weekly’ confirmed the news of the unlikely romance shortly after Deschanel split from her husband of four years, Jacob Pechenik. The exes share daughter Elsie Otter and son Charlie Wolf.
Scott and the ‘500 Days of Summer’ actress made their relationship Instagram official in October 2019 after a fright-filled double date with Drew Scott (the other ‘Property Brother’) and his wife, Linda Phan. Jonathan and his new flame posted a PDA pic after the couples braved Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Los Angeles.
Back in August 2020, Jonathan and Zooey celebrated one year together. And, from what Jonathan told ‘E!’, it seems as though it was love at first sight. "We talked almost every day after we met," he stated. "When we started dating, it was just…all of the things lined up. And what I had been looking for in a person for years and years and years—and it was the same for her."
Speaking on how they are maintaining their relationships during the quarantine, Jonathan said in the same interview, “I kind of struck gold because quarantining with Zooey, she is this incredible chef," Jonathan relayed. "So, she makes the most fantastic meals every day. She also loves board games. We even did a virtual escape room the other night, which was a lot of fun."
Since the ‘New Girl’ actress is also a professional musician, Jonathan confirmed that his girlfriend "plays music all the time." He added, "So, really it's been nice to have this forced break."
