Zooey Deschanel and beau Jonathan Scott are one of the most happening couples in tinsel town. Only a few months into dating and their social media posts and never-ending PDA have already set major relationship goals and created an immense buzz among fans and the industry.

However, there’s more to their highly adored relationship, which left us baffled when it started off. 

For the uninitiated, the '500 Days of Summer' actress was previously married to film producer Jacob Pechenik, with who she has two children — Elsie Otter and Charlie Wolf. The couple got engaged in January 2015 and tied the knot in June 2015, before ending their marriage of four years last September. 

Although Deschanel and Pechenik decided to walk different paths after agreeing they were “better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners", what came across as shocking and rather puzzling was her relationship with the ‘Property Brothers’ star Jonathan Scott, who she started dating only a week after announcing divorce from her previous husband. 

In what began as only hearsay, Deschanel and Scott were soon spotted walking hand-in-hand during the shooting of an episode of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke with Scott’s brother JD Scott and wife Belle in August 2019, according to sources. 

Even before fans could fathom what was brewing between the two, Deschanel and the HGTV star made an appearance together at Little Dos restaurant in Silver Lake, California, in September 2020. 

Wasting no time, Scott decided to introduce his new lady love to his family by taking her with him to Scott and Belle's wedding. More than their next big step in the relationship itself, what garnered more attention was their costumes as Batwoman and Catwoman which they sported during the wedding, cuddling up in each other’s arm for nearly every picture. 

Following their attendance at the eccentric nuptials, the couple never shied away from openly talking about their relationship as they made it Instagram official. 

Since then, their relationship has only gotten stronger, with the couple leaving no opportunity to embrace each other and putting the same on display with cheesy yet adorable captions. 

They began the year 2020 in each other’s presence and celebrated their relationship with fans through a string of loving Instagram posts. 

Deschanel posted a picture of her with Scott on Instagram and captioned it: "A truly Happy New Year with my sweetie!" Meanwhile, he captioned the same picture: "Once in a lifetime you meet someone who changes everything?"

The rest of the world may have come to a halt due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but Deschanel and Scott continue to have their share of fun as they are isolating together. 

How are they enjoying each other’s company you ask? Well, with at-home haircare, which saw Deschanel recently color Scott’s hair gray.

Gushing about his girlfriend of seven months, Scott told People, "Let me tell you, I've been quarantined with the perfect person." He then went to praise Deschanel some more and said not only is "Zooey an amazing cook, but she's a musician, so our house is constantly filled with music".
