Zooey Deschanel is known as the cute, girl next door, whom we remember from movies like Elf , 500 Days Of Summer, and the popular show New Girl.
However, it’s her love life that appears to have stoked curiosity recently as she has been in a very public relationship with Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott.
Her second husband recently filed for divorce, and the actress has moved on very quickly, showing off her new relationship on Instagram with every chance she gets.
Zooey was married to Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard in September 2009, to the shock of many people. However, there wasn’t much time to get accustomed to the relationship, as they divorced just a short time later in January 2012.
Her most recent marriage was to producer Jacob Pechenik, whom she met on the set of Rock The Kasbah. The couple married in June 2015, welcoming their first child together just a couple of months later. They had another child together in 2017, and even started a business together.
However, they hit a rough patch this year, confirming in September that they would be divorcing.
Just a week after announcing her divorce, the New Girl star was seen out with Jonathan Scott having a romantic dinner, to the surprise of many. A source told HollywoodLife, “They looked very happy and casual. They seemed giddy about one another and held hands as they arrived and whispered to each other often. It was really sweet.”
The pair met while filming Carpool Karaoke back in August (while she was still married) so it’s not surprising that many people are questioning the timing of her new relationship.
The smitten couple made things Instagram official in November when Jonathan posted a loved up selfie with the caption “Simple a perfect date night.”
They are apparently super into each other, with a source telling People, “He makes her laugh and he’s so sweet to her. They bonded over shared love of music. He’s very close to his family and loves children.”
It appears this may be a match made in heaven then! The source also confirmed that Zooey is “really happy and in a good place” since she started dating Jonathan. They seem to be taking things a little slower than what is normal for her however, as he has yet to meet her children.
The couple spent the Thanksgiving holidays together, and Jonathan posted multiple pictures on Instagram, gushing about the actress and his relationship with her.
He captioned one cozy snap, “I am beyond thankful to be surrounded by such incredibly fun loving people & puppies. You bring joy to my life. I love you. #HappyThanksgiving #ThankYouToOurFansToo.”
Fans were delighted at the fact that he dropped the L-bomb, and this gives quite a bit of insight into how serious the new couple is. Perhaps an engagement will be on the horizon?
