Jonathan Scott, 43, and his fiancée, Elf actress Zooey Deschanel, 41, have officially become homeowners, and he’s giving fans a glimpse into their relationship.
The Property Brothers star and New Girl alum met in September 2019 while filming Carpool Karaoke and hit it off right away. Deschanel’s unexpected romance was revealed by Us Weekly shortly after her four-year marriage to Jacob Pechenik ended. Elsie Otter was the couple’s daughter, and Charlie Wolf was their son.
Scott told Us one day before their relationship became public, “I am seeing someone.” “Because I’m a really private person, I don’t usually talk about such things.” It’s one-of-a-kind for me since I’m the type of person that sets the bar high for what I want in a mate. I was caught off guard by the situation. Without a sure, it was a wonderful surprise.”
Following a terrifying double date with Drew Scott and his wife Linda Phan, Zooey and Scott revealed their love on Instagram in October 2019. After attending Horror Nightmare Weeks at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, Jonathan and his new flame shared a PDA photo.

The HGTV star and New Girl alum met while filming an episode of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, and Zo0ey instantly caught Jonathan’s attention. “From the minute she went over to say hello, she had a bounce in her step and an energy about her that made me swiftly take attention,” he said in his Reveal essay. On YouTube, fans can see their 2019 Carpool Karaoke episode, which they taped with their siblings Drew and Emily Deschanel of Bones.
During a 2020 episode of At Home With Linda and Drew Scott, Jonathan admitted that his heated flirting with Zooey was edited out by producers, but it’s impossible to miss the smiles on both of their faces throughout the show.
They’re photographed holding hands in Silver Lake, CA, just before they appear together on set of Dancing With the Stars, and Jonathan tells Us Weekly that he’s dating someone new (though he doesn’t name names). “Because I’m a really private person, I don’t normally talk about such things. It’s unusual for me because I’m the type of person who sets the bar for what I want in a partner. The situation had caught me off guard. To say the least, that was a wonderful surprise “he explained.
Jonathan and Zooey made their relationship public on Instagram, posting photos of their double date with Drew and his wife, Linda Phan, at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights in Los Angeles.
Jonathan and Zooey ring in the new year as a pair, just two months after making their red carpet debut as a couple at the Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards in Brooklyn. “Once in a lifetime you meet someone who changes everything,” Jonathan writes on Instagram on New Year’s Day.
When the epidemic strikes a few months later, the pair remains on lockdown together. He told E-Daily !‘s Pop, “I kind of struck gold because quarantining with Zooey, she is this fantastic cook.””As a result, she creates wonderful meals on a daily basis. She also likes to play board games. The previous night, we also did a virtual escape room, which was a lot of fun… [She possesses] all of the qualities I’ve been looking for in a partner for years.”
As soon as the engagement rumours start to circulate, Jonathan puts an end to them. “I’m fairly confident that I’ll ask my girlfriend to marry me before I tell a reporter,” he said during an appearance on SiriusXM’s Covino & Rich. “I don’t talk about my personal life because it’s my personal life,” she says, “but the rumour mill goes crazy.”
The couple is celebrating their two-year anniversary of marriage. “2 years and still my favourite,” Zooey writes on Instagram, to which Jonathan answers. “Two years ago, I knew you were going to transform my life.”
In the Winter 2022 issue of Drew + Jonathan Reveal, Jonathan discloses that the pair bought a property in June 2020 and started renovating it soon after.
According to Jonathan’s personal essay, they both have a passion for real estate and old homes. Zooey’s passion in real estate, along with Jonathan’s construction expertise, led to a series of noncommittal house inspections that eventually led to the couple purchasing their “forever home.”
Jonathan characterised their first tour of their ideal home as follows:
“It was a Georgian-style house built in 1938 by renowned California architect Gerard Colcord. It seemed… wonderful as we approached the road. It was on a little more than an acre, and it looked like a park with its beautiful lawn and enormous California sycamores. This is why the Park House was given to the property when we first showed it to the kids. And do you know what happens when you give something a name, whether it’s a stray dog or the house of your dreams? It’s yours to keep. Zooey and I were soon the proud owners of the Park House.”
“See the kids grow up laughing and adventuring in the yard,” Jonathan added of Zooey’s children with ex-husband Jacob Pechenik, daughter Elsie Otter, 5, and son Charlie Wolf, 4, who live at the Park House.
