New Girl alum Zooey Deschanel and Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott made their red carpet couple debut at the Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards in Brooklyn, New York, on Sunday, November 10.
Deschanel wore a white floral cocktail dress for the event, while Scott dressed in an aubergine suit.
Back on September 14, numerous sources confirmed to Us Weekly that Deschanel and Scott were dating. The Property Brothers star hinted at a romance but didn’t name Deschanel as his love interest. A day earlier, Scott and the actress were photographed holding hands in Silver Lake, California.
“I am seeing someone,” Scott said to Us Weekly. “I’m a very private person, so I don’t typically talk about that. It’s definitely special for me because I am the guy who raises the bar in what I’m looking for in a partner. I was caught a little off guard. It was definitely a pleasant surprise.”
The pair met on the set of Carpool Karaoke over the summer and instantly hit it off, a source reported to Us Weekly. “Jonathan and Zooey had instant chemistry when they met on set,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’ve bonded over their love of music, film, theatre – and Christmas carols.”
The source also added that the pair “have a similar sense of humor” and “became friends and started texting and talking on the phone and it blossomed from there.”
The couple revealed their relationship to fans on Instagram last month. Deschanel posted a picture of her and Scott at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights and featured Drew Scott (Jonathan’s twin brother) and his wife, Linda Phan.
Also, on October 31, the actress shared with her fans she was “overjoyed” as she joined Scott at the Halloween-themed wedding of his eldest brother, J.D. Scott, to Annalee Belle.
