Zooey Deschanel has a new man in her life!
Multiple sources close to the New Girl actress have confirmed she and Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott are officially an item.
The news comes just one week after the 39-year-old announced she and husband Jacob Pechenik were calling it quits after four years of marriage and two kids together.
In photos obtained by Hollywood Life, Deschanel and the HGTV personality were seen holding hands while arriving at Little Dom’s restaurant on Friday in the Los Feliz neighborhood in El Lay.
Although he didn’t mention Zooey by name, Scott revealed he is currently seeing someone when Us Weekly caught up with the TV host that same day. He said:
“I am seeing someone. 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.”
Nice! But, how did these two even get acquainted in the first place?
Zooey and Jonathan reportedly met in August while filming a Carpool Karaoke segment with their respective siblings, Emily Deschanel and Drew Scott.
An insider told HL the pair became close friends after their appearance on James Corden‘s hit show and things took off from there! They dished:
“They started out as friends. They’ve been out a few times and seem to want to keep the romance on the quieter side. It’s pretty new still. They seem to like each other a lot and Jonathan travels a lot, but they see one another when they can.”
Additionally, a different source close to the 41-year-old told People the relationship is “new, but they are having a lot of fun together.”
As we mentioned at the top, the 500 Days of Summer star only recently announced the split from Pechnik. On September 6, the parents-of-two shared a joint statement about their separation, which read:
“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. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time.”
They’ll reportedly continue to co-parent their children, four-year-old Elsie Otter Pechenik and two-year-old Charlie Wolf Pechenik.
As for Jonathan, he and longtime partner Jacinta Kuznetsov were together up until April 2018. He was also previously married to Kelsy Ully for several years.
Time will tell how this new relationship plays out, but we wish the new happy couple all the best!
