Deschanel met the “Property Brothers” star while filming a sibling edition of “Carpool Karaoke” along with her older sister, Emily Deschanel, and Scott’s brother Drew Scott in August 2019. The two hilariously belted songs together, which definitely seemed to create a spark between Deschanel and Jonathan. “How cool was that that the first time we ever met was caught on tape . . . So I guess a big thanks to James Corden. It’s because of (‘Carpool Karaoke: The Series’) that we met,” Jonathan later revealed to Access Hollywood.
A month after connecting for the first time, Us Weekly reported that the two were dating in September 2019. The couple made their Instagram debut on Halloween in 2019 and ended up quarantining together at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in April 2020. Though the pair have mainly kept their relationship private, neither Deschanel nor Scott have trouble singing the other partner’s praises on social media.
On their one-year anniversary of meeting for the first time, Deschanel made a sweet post on Instagram gushing over her beau, writing, “One year ago today I met this kind, caring, hilarious, generous, creative, nerdy, handsome and all around incredible human. I am so grateful for every smile, kiss, hug, snuggle, laugh, scrabble game, escape room, breakfast, lunch and dinner we share together. Even during the weirdest year for humanity I want a million billion more with you.”
Outside of their relationship, the two have also collaborated on screen together, and in December 2020, Deschanel starred in the Scott brothers’ show “Celebrity IOU.” The couple live together in an LA home that they purchased in June 2020 and renovated together.
On Aug. 14, the couple announced their engagement on Instagram. “Forever starts now!!! 🥰♾️🥰,” they captioned a selfie of themselves. The photo also featured a close-up of Deschanel’s unique floral engagement ring.
