People.com Lifestyle Home Jonathan Scott Shares a Sweet Selfie Calling Girlfriend Zooey Deschanel 'My Perfect Person' The HGTV star and the New Girl actress have been dating since August 2019 By Hannah Chubb Published on March 15, 2021 01:50 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Jonathan Scott/Instagram Jonathan Scott only has eyes for his girlfriend Zooey Deschanel! The Property Brothers star, 42, took to Instagram on Sunday to share an adorable, black-and-white snap from a recent hike he took with the New Girl actress, 41, whom he has been dating since August 2019. "What a perfect day with my perfect person," wrote the builder alongside a smiley face emoji surrounded by hearts. He also added two hashtags: "#BackToNature" and "#SunnySkiesAhead." In the photo, Deschanel is donning a large hat with a ribbon tied around her chin — the floppy brim of which is pressed into Scott's cheek. Some commenters jokingly noted that it looked like Scott was photoshopped into the photo, but Deschanel shut down the speculation with her own comment. "Haha. Controversy!" she wrote. "I am very amused by this conclusion that you would take the time to photoshop a picture from our hike and not that I was unironically wearing a ridiculously oversized Easter bonnet so big you could barely fit in the picture."
