The news of Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel’s romance was broken by Hollywood Life and since then the Property Brothers star hasn’t been holding back on the Instagram love for the New Girl actress.
Love is in the air for the couple, with hand-holding, Instagram flirting and the works. 41-year-old Jonathan Scott showed that he was a fan of 39-year-old Zooey Deschanel by liking his new girlfriend’s portrait on Instagram on 30 Sept.
The 500 Days of Summer actress was showing off her bedhead-inspired hairdo to her 5.4 million followers, captioning the photo with, “Felt cute, won’t delete until my hairstylist calls, concerned.”
Even if her hairstylist does call, Jonathan wouldn’t want Zooey to delete the post. He liked the photo.
Jonathan was also IG-flirting with Zooey on an announcement for her holiday tour dates with her She & Him bandmate M.Ward posted on 17 Sept.
He let her know that he intends to cheer her from the audience.
“Well there’s no way I’m missing this ? ?,” the HGTV star affectionately commented. Even his twin and co-star, Drew Scott, chimed in from the comments section: “Can I sing backup??❤️.”
News of Zooey and Jonathan dating was broken by Hollywood Life with exclusive photos of their date in Silver Lake, CA on 13 Sept.
They looked smitten holding hands en route to Little Dom’s restaurant and were once again photographed hand-in-hand (and even colour coordinating in blues) in Beverly Hills on 19 Sept.
The pair met while filming a segment of Carpool Karaoke for The Late Late Show with James Corden in Aug 2019 and their relationship has taken off since then.
“They started out as friends,” an insider exclusively told Hollywood Life.
“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. They both seem pretty happy and into it so far.”
Zooey had also just announced her split from her husband of four years, Jacob Pechenik, 47, in a joint statement issued on 6 Sept, and a source confirmed with Hollywood Life that the former couple had been separated for “several months.”
Jonathan himself revealed the details of his meet-cute with Zooey in an exclusive interview with Hollywood Life, while promoting his and Drew’s new children’s picture book Builder Brothers: Better Together.
Jonathan and Zooey’s look-alikes — their siblings Drew and Emily Deschanel, respectively — also joined the Carpool Karaoke segment, and it was Jonathan and Drew’s first time ever meeting the sisters!
“It’s sometimes a little weird when you just get thrust on camera with people you’ve never met before but we just clicked,” Jonathan admitted, who added that they “just had so much fun.” As you can see, he and Zooey are still having fun! -/TISG
