Zooey Deschanel engaged to Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott

Zooey Deschanel has announced her engagement to Jonathan Scott.

The New Girl actress, 43, has been dating the Property Brothers host, 45, since 2019.

Taking to Instagram on Monday night, she shared that she’s now his bride-to-be.

The star captioned a selfie of her flashing her diamond engagement ring and cuddling up to Jonathan with the caption: ‘Forever starts now!!!’

Her striking band features diamonds alongside purple sapphires and what appears to be a pink stone.

Jonathan popped the question on Sunday during a family vacation in Scotland, according to People magazine, with the couple posing in front of a castle amid striking scenery.

The outlet added Zooey’s daughter Elsie, eight, and son Charlie, six, who she had with her ex-husband Jacob Pechenik, 51, played a role in organising the special moment.

Plenty of the couple’s famous friends rushed to congratulate them on the news, with Mindy Kaling commenting: ‘Omg!!! So amazing Zooey! Congrats!! ❤️’

‘CONGRATS!!!!’ wrote Zooey’s New Girl co-star Jake Johnson, while Jonathan’s brother Drew Scott added: ‘This makes me so happy❤️❤️’

Zooey and Jonathan first met in a brilliant onscreen meet-cute while they were filming an episode of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke with their siblings, Drew and Emily Deschanel.

The pair were then spotted holding hands the following month, one week after Zooey revealed she was splitting from Jacob, who she married in 2015.

They confirmed their romance in October 2019 when they shared a kiss during a taping of Dancing with the Stars.

The pair’s bond strengthened during the Covid lockdowns, which they spent sharing glimpses into their lives with fans on social media including at-home haircuts.

Zooey called her beau the most ‘kind, caring, hilarious, generous, creative, nerdy, handsome and all around incredible human’ in a tribute for their first anniversary.

‘I am so grateful for every smile, kiss, hug, snuggle, laugh, scrabble game, escape room, breakfast, lunch and dinner we share together,’ she wrote at the time on social media.

‘Even during the weirdest year for humanity I want a million billion more with you.’

Jonathan said on Entertainment Tonight in August 2021 about the actress: ‘We just celebrated our second anniversary… and I know I am dating up.’

He added he plans to ‘keep raising the bar and keep up with those expectations’.

The couple bought a home together in 2020 for $9.5million and completed renovations on the five-bedroom Georgian revival two years later.

Before getting wed to second husband Jacob, Zooey was married to Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, 47, from whom she split in 2012 after a three-year marriage.

Jonathan was previously married to flight coordinator Kelsy Ully.
