Zooey Deschanel and “Property Brothers” Star Jonathan Scott Are Engaged After Nearly Four Years Together

After nearly four years of dating, Zooey Deschanel, the star of New Girl, and Jonathan Scott, one half of the popular HGTV series Property Brothers, have announced their engagement. The couple’s love story is nothing short of a whirlwind romance, with both having previously been married before finding happiness in each other’s arms.

How They Met

Their first encounter was on the set of a 2019 episode of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke segment, where they were filming alongside their respective siblings, Emily Deschanel and Drew Scott. While they initially bonded over their shared love for music, their connection quickly blossomed into something more as they started appearing together on red carpets for various events.

Finding Love Again

Prior to meeting Jonathan, Zooey was married to Ben Gibbard, the frontman of Death Cab for Cutie from 2009 until their divorce in 2012. She later married producer Jacob Pechenik, with whom she shares two children, Elsie Otter (born 2015) and Charlie Wolf (born 2017). The couple separated in September 2019, citing that they had grown apart.

As for Jonathan, he had previously been married to Kelsy Ully, an airline-crew scheduler, from 2007 to 2010. Their split was attributed to the pressures of fame after the success of Property Brothers.

Merging Their Passions and Talents

As a singer-songwriter, Zooey teamed up with her fiancĂ© to record a cover of “A Very She & Him Christmas Party” in 2020, while Jonathan made a guest appearance on her band’s holiday special. The couple even worked together on a design project for the Scott brothers’ lifestyle brand, Scott Living.
