New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel engaged! Star announces news with TV star fiancé

American actress Zooey Deschanel has announced her engagement to Jonathan Scott, the co-host of a US reality TV show, Property Brothers.

The New Girl star, 43, and Jonathan, 45, both posted a photo to their Instagram accounts which showed Deschanel sporting pink nails and an engagement ring with a photo caption that read: “Forever starts now”.

A number of celebrities commented on Zooey’s post, offering their best wishes.

Hannah Simone, who played Deschanel’s onscreen best friend, Cece, in New Girl, commented: “I LOVE YOU!! This is so wonderful.”

Mindy Kaling, creator of TV show The Mindy Project, said: “Omg!!! So amazing Zooey! Congrats!!”

Bryce Dallas Howard, who played Claire Dearing in Jurassic World, also offered her congratulations and so did Mad Men star January Jones.

Zooey, who has appeared in 500 Days Of Summer, Elf and Trolls, met Scott for the first time when they filmed Carpool Karaoke: The Series – Deschanel Sisters; and The Property Brothers in 2019.

Carpool Karaoke: The Series is based on a regular segment from The Late Late Show with James Corden that has become a viral online sensation.

New episodes of the Apple TV+ series, which involves celebrities singing in the car, were released in June.

In 2022, Zoeey and Jonathan starred in another episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series, where they discussed their relationship.

Zooey has been married twice before and wed Ben Gibbard, lead vocalist for the indie rock band Death Cab For Cutie, in 2009.

The couple divorced in 2012 and Deschanel went on to marry film producer Jacob Pechenik in 2015, with whom she now shares two children: Elsie Otter and Charlie Wolf.

Before Zooey gave birth for the first time, she admitted that she would not be bouncing back into photo-shoot shape after giving birth.

The star said that she would not be pressuring herself to shed the pounds immediately, telling Cosmopolitan: "Haven't we all seen those pictures of a sexy new mom in a bikini after one month? I will not be that person. I've always gone my own course and never been someone who had the need to be super skinny."

She split from Jacob in 2019, the same year she then met new fiancé Jonathan, who is known for co-hosting the reality TV show The Property Brothers with his identical twin, Drew.
