New Girl Zooey Deschanel and Property Brother Jonathan Scott are one of 2019’s most unexpected couples, but the duo seems to have really found a nice groove since meeting during a Carpool Karaoke shoot.
Deschanel split from her husband Jacob Pechenik this summer and was seen with Scott very soon after.
Scott recently opened up a little bit about his new relationship, and things seem to be getting a bit more serious, including double dates with his brother Drew and his wife Linda Phan. Jonathan explained the type of “quirky” woman he’s attracted to, and honestly, it sounds exactly like Deschanel.
“[She’d be] somebody who’s articulate, has a great sense of humor and a fun, optimistic outlook on life. Can’t take themselves too seriously.”
Drew explained that there is an “approval process,” and Deschanel seems to have passed with flying colors.
“I have my ‘good for Jonathan’ checklist. [Zooey and Jonathan are] both amazing people, and I think it’s great. It’s exciting. It means I get to have Jon out here to spend more time with us in L.A.”
Jonathan his ex-wife Jonathan split in 2001, and he has explained in the past that with the right partner, “you feel good about yourself and good about them.”
He also sees children in his future.
“I want to be a dad, so it’s important for me to have a partner who would play a key role in that. When we film our shows I get along so great with the kids, and I like the idea that I can use what I believe to be good to shape the mind of a little human. I have said to myself that if I don’t find the right person I think I would probably adopt on my own, because I think I would be a great dad.”
Deschanel is a mother of two, so this is another thing the quirky couple has in common.
