Are Zooey Deschanel And ‘Property Brother’ Jonathan Scott An Item?
Published on September 27, 2019
Everyone loves seeing new couples come out of Hollywood. Folks will find new nicknames for the couple and create fan Twitter accounts. It’s even better when it’s two people from different worlds. One intriguing alleged couple making the rounds is actress Zooey Deschanel and Property Brothers‘ Jonathan Scott.
Who’s That Girl?
While they’re not from the same line of work, they have two things in common: television and music. Deschanel spent seven seasons portraying teacher Jessica Day on Fox’s New Girl. The actress gained three Golden Globe nominations and one Emmy nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. In 2012, she was tied with Amy Poehler in the same category at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards.
In 2008, Deschanel joined forces with singer-songwriter M. Ward for the indie-pop band She & Him. The group released six studio albums, including 2016’s Christmas Party. In 2012, She & Him gained a Grammy nomination for Best Song Written for Visual Media with “So Long.”
Getting Their Hands Dirty
Scott co-hosts the HGTV reality show Property Brothers with his twin brother Drew. The series finds the two fixing homes for potential homebuyers. Much like New Girl, the show debuted back in 2011. Scott also handles the spin-offs Buying and Selling, Brother Vs. Brother, and Property Brothers: At Home.
In 2015, Scott and his brother started the pop/country band The Scott Brothers. That same year, they unveiled their first single “Let the Night Shine In.” Their last single was a cover of Flo Rida’s “My House,” which was released on January 12, 2017. Before Property Brothers, Scott had minor acting roles in The X-Files and Breaker High. While the acting gig didn’t last long, Scott still became a success later on in life.
Karaoke On Their Minds
The whole thing began after Deschanel and Scott taped an episode of Carpool Karaoke in August. This episode featured the Scott Brothers teaming up with Zooey and her sister Emily. “They were all talented and spontaneous and they had a really fun time shooting the show. They became friends after and then started talking as friends and realized there was more to it. It’s still a very new relationship,” an unnamed source told People.
Earlier this year, Deschanel announced her split from her husband Jacob Pechenik. “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,” they told People in a joint statement. “We remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time.” The couple split months before the announcement was made.
Recently, Deschanel and Scott have been seen together in public. While they haven’t made it official, fans are freaking out about their pairing. “The best way to end a baby shower is everyone yelling “WHAT?!?!?” upon discovering that Zooey Deschanel is dating a Property Brother,” Twitter user sdpowell1 said. Some people have been making sly references to Deschanel’s 2009 film 500 Days of Summer. “Property Brothers renovations are now all going to take 500 days and be shown out of sequence,” Twitter user bkmcconnell said.
Melodies Bringing People Together
How did the pair get closer together? It was through the power of music! “He makes her laugh and he’s so sweet to her. They bonded over a shared love of music. He’s very close to his family and loves children,” an unnamed source told People. With their aforementioned music careers, it’s too soon to see if they’ll appear on each other’s albums. For now, they’ll just take it one step at a time.
