Zooey Deschanel and Property Brother Jonathan Scott recently bought their first home together. The sweet couple announced their purchase on Instagram. Now many fans are wondering if an engagement ring is in the (near) future.

Taking to Instagram, Jonathan posted a photo of him and Zooey in what appears to be their new home and said, “I’ve got some exciting almost New Year’s news…Zooey and I bought our OWN forever home! It’s a full blown reno and you can follow us through the journey over the next few issues of Drew + Jonathan Reveal (sneak peak in the new issue of #RevealMag on newsstands Jan 7th).”

According to the couple, their new home is exactly what they wanted. Jonathan even called it “magical.” Located in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, the house is a 1938 Georgian style home with plenty of trees and a little yard. While fans don’t have a lot of pictures of the home, according to Jonathan, they won’t have to wait long.

Zooey and Jonathan, and Zooey’s kids Charlie and Elsie, named the home Park House after closing in June 2020, and according to the property brother, the beautiful home has a lot more damage than he originally thought.

Jonathan wrote an essay in issue #9 of Drew + Jonathan Reveal and talked all about the renovations that Zooey and him have started to do on their new home.

“And you know what happens when you name something, whether it’s a mangy stray dog or a beautiful home of your dreams?” Jonathan wrote. “You keep it. The next thing you know, Zooey and I owned the Park House. This dream home would become the largest residential renovation I had ever done in my career.”

With the new house announcement, many of Zooey Deschanel’s fans are wondering how serious they are. The couple have kept their romance private, but according to reports they met on an episode of Carpool Karaoke in 2019 and Jonathan said that he was instantly attracted to the New Girl actress.

He said, “From the first moment she walked over to say hello, she had a bounce in her step and an energy about her that made me immediately take notice.” He later learned that they had many things in common, like their love of real estate. “I also discovered that she’s obsessed with real estate — one of those ‘Friday Night Zillow’ types,” he wrote. “And she knows her stuff! We both cherish old homes—the intricate details, the wood floors, the vintage hardware. We like a home that feels special and loved, with its own unique story.”

In his essay, the reality TV star said that Zooey made him love living in Los Angeles and that was why they decided to buy their new home there. Jonathan and Drew Scott are both natives of Canada.

“What I found out very early on is that Zooey loves Los Angeles. Like, love-loves it. She’s a native Angeleno, her parents still live in her childhood home, the whole deal. But the more she showed me her Los Angeles — the parks she went to growing up, the neighborhoods where she made memories with her closest friends — the more I found myself in love with an Angeleno, and with L.A., too,” he gushed.

While fans really want to see this adorable couple get married, they understand if Zooey and Jonathan want to wait to tie the knot given their history. Both of them have been married before, and Zooey has two kids from her previous marriage to Jacob Pechenik.

She shares Charlie, 4, and Elsie, 6, with her previous husband and was also married to Ben Gibbard from 2009 to 2012. Jonathan didn’t have children with his ex-wife. He was married to Kelsy Ully from 2007 to 2013.

During a November 2020 episode of the SiriusXM podcast Covino and Rich, Jonathan Scott joked with reporters that the first person to know about their engagement would be Zooey.

He said, “I’m pretty confident that I will ask my girlfriend to marry me before I tell a reporter.”
