Since actress Zooey Deschanel and “Property Brothers” host Jonathan Scott met over two years ago, they have been relatively open about their bond.
Here’s a timeline of their relationship so far:
August 2019: Deschanel and Scott met while filming an episode of ‘Carpool Karaoke’
The pair met while filming an episode of James Corden’s singing talk show, in which the “Property Brothers” twins were pitted against the Deschanel sisters.
Afterward, Scott posted a photo of the group on Instagram with the caption, “Met some new humans today. We had fun. I think I’ll keep them #carpoolkaraoke”
The “New Girl” actress was still married to Jacob Pechenik at the time, though the pair had been separated since January.
During an April 2020 appearance on his brother’s podcast, “At Home With Linda and Drew Scott,” the HGTV star said that he had developed a crush on Deschanel that day.
“I thought I was playing it cool. I didn’t think anything of it,” Scott said. “The producer said I was flirting so bad, so hard they had to cut a bunch of that out.”

After four years of marriage and two children together, Deschanel and Pechenik formally announced they were ending things.
In a September 2019 statement published by People, they said, “We have decided we are better off as friends, business partners, and co-parents rather than life partners.”

Later that month, they made their red-carpet debut as a couple at the 2019 Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards in Brooklyn, New York.
During the show, the actress presented the award for best music documentary.
