Hollywood star Zooey Deschanel has been into showbiz since 1998. The actress has been a part of some really big projects such as The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, 500 Days of Summer and many more. She announced her separation from husband and film producer Jacob Pechenik just last week, and seems to have finally moved on. The actress was recently photographed holding hands with Property Brothers star, Jonathan Scott. They were seen arriving at the Little Dom's restaurant in Silver Lake, California together on Friday. According to E! News, it has been confirmed that the two are officially dating.
Reports state that Zooey and Jonathan met on James Corden's show, The Late Late Show with James Corden, where the two filmed a segment together along with their siblings, Emily Deschanel and Drew Scott. It was then that the two clicked and thought of taking things forward. A source close to the new couple revealed, "They both seem pretty happy and into it so far. It's still very new and she wasn't really looking to date, but she and Jonathan hit it off unexpectedly." Another added that they were having a lot of fun together.
Zooey was earlier married to film producer Jacob. The two tied the knot back in the summer of 2015 and welcomed their first child together, a daughter Elsie. Two years into the marriage, they had their second child, this time a son named Charlie. They announced their separation last week after 4 years of marriage and released a joint statement. It read, "After much discussion and a long period of contemplation we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners. We remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time."
