7 Reasons We're Crushing on Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel's Adorable New Relationship
We're kicking off December with a look at a celebrity couple we're so grateful got together this year!
Truth Time: We're totally obsessed with Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel as individuals, but especially as a couple. Ever since the Property Brother and New Girl star crossed paths back in August (more on that in a sec), we've been swooning over their flirty Instagram interactions, stunning red carpet debuts, sweet holiday celebrations and pretty much every other public milestone they've shared thus far.
So, when we started thinking about what we were thankful for this year, Jonathan and Zooey's adorable budding relationship was obviously at the top of the list. Here are all the reasons why we're so glad they got together!
Their meet-cute was straight out of a rom-com.
James Corden's segment-turned-Apple TV-series Carpool Karaoke has given us many iconic matchups over the years, from former First Lady Michelle Obama and rapper Missy Elliott to Captain Marvel co-stars Bri Larson and Samuel L. Jackson. But most recently, the hit show paired HGTV's Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott with actress sisters Zooey and Emily Deschanel, of New Girl and Bones — which led to the show's first ever love connection.
While filming their Carpool Karaoke episode back in August (and belting their lungs out and belly-laughing in the process), Jonathan and Zooey quickly bonded. Shortly thereafter, the two were spotted holding hands around Los Angeles and then eventually confirmed their relationship in October. Seriously, just imagine telling your family and friends that host James Corden was your own personal Cupid!
They're comfortable around each other's families, which we love to see.
Zooey and Jonathan didn't just hit it off with each other during Carpool Karaoke; they also vibed with the other's sibling, which is a major plus for any relationship. While other families squawk and squabble around their Thanksgiving tables this year, it's pretty likely that Zooey and Drew will be brainstorming band names for a future singing-related side project.
They inspire us with their cute date ideas and tasteful PDA.
A stroll through the new Tim Burton Exhibit followed by stand-up from comedian Jerry Seinfeld? Clearly, this is a couple who can teach us a thing or two about getting culture with your sweetheart.
They celebrate each other's interests ... and good hair days.
The only thing better than a partner who takes a genuine interest in your passion for documentaries and accompanies you to the Critics' Choice Documentary Awards? A partner who will double-tap your latest pic on Instagram documenting your good hair day. Eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot that Jonathan gave this photo from Zooey a heart.
They have a love that can survive even the scariest situations.
We knew this relationship was rock-solid when Jonathan and Zooey posted matching pics from Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights. Any couple that still gets those warm and fuzzy feelings for each other after encountering killer clowns and chainsaw-wielding skeletons is built to last in our books. (This obviously holds up for our other OTP, Drew and Linda Phan, who were there on a double date!)
They set a new standard for couples costumes.
Speaking of Halloween, Zooey and Jonathan are #goals when it comes to couples costumes. In honor of brother J.D. Scott's October 31 wedding to makeup artist Annalee Belle, Zooey and Jonathan attended the reception as Catwoman and Batman. Her black leather bodysuit complemented his cape so well that it led to this Insta-worthy moment.
They spread Christmas cheer apart and together.
It's no secret that the Scott family takes their Christmas caroling duties very seriously. In the past, Jonathan's shared that he, Drew and J.D. join parents Jim and Joanne every year in serenading their neighbors with classics like "Joy to the World" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." They've also been known to pass out cookies and hot chocolate while wearing matching Christmas outfits. (Need visual evidence? Just peep the pic above.)
So naturally, a Grammy-nominated singer like Zooey — who has both a solo in the Christmas film Elf and three Christmas albums with folk/indie band She & Him under her belt — will fit right in. In fact, Jonathan told People just days ago that, "She is leading that mix" before she joins bandmate M. Ward on their Christmas-themed tour.
We're pretty sure this means we can expect to see Jonathan and Zooey in matching Christmas pajama sets soon, which is just another thing we're thankful for this year.
