Deschanel started dating Scott, 44 in 2019. Earlier in June 2022, the duo debuted their dream home in Los Angeles. Talking to Today about their five-bedroom, eight-bathroom property, Scott said, "We literally designed this house, so that … my hope is it will stay in the family forever, our kids will take it over, and then their kids will take it over."
Before Zooey was involved with Scott, she married Pechenik in June 2015. The following month of the same year, they welcomed their first child Elsie. Then in May 2017, the two were blessed with their son Charlie.
They called their marriage off in September 2019 and began co-parenting their two babies. In a joint statement, they said, "After much discussion and a long period of contemplation, we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners. We remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children.”
Pechenik also told Us Weekly in the same year that he and Deschanel have maintained an "amicable" dynamic. He said, "We have beautiful children together that are that way because we were the parents. We’ve been raising them, and we’re going to continue to raise them and take great care of them.” They applied for and were granted joint custody of their children Elsie and Charlie when their divorce was finalized in June 2020.
Zooey and Jonathan
“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.”
The couple celebrated one year together in August 2020 and from what Scott told media, it was love at first sight. He said, "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."
