Zooey Deschanel is showing off her one big happy family!

In honor of Father's Day on Sunday, the New Girl actress posted rare sightings of her kids — son Charlie Wolf, 5, and daughter Elsie Otter, 6 — as they spent time together with her ex-husband Jacob Pechenik and current boyfriend, Jonathan Scott.

In the sweet photo, Charlie sat on Pechenik's shoulder while Elsie sat on Scott's. The children's faces, however, were hidden behind red heart emojis.

"So thankful my kids have these two awesome guys in their lives: @jonathanscott and their dad @jacobpechenik," she captioned the Instagram post.

"🙏 ❤️ It's my absolute greatest privilege," Pechenik, 50, replied in the comment section. Meanwhile, Scott, 44, responded to the adorable snapshot by writing, "One big happy family 🥰"

Deschanel, 42, and her ex Pechenik have joint custody of Charlie and Elsie following their divorce in 2020.

The former couple first met on set of the Bill Murray comedy Rock the Kasbah. They confirmed their engagement in January 2015 and got married that June. Following three and a half years of marriage, they separated on Jan. 8, 2019. Nine months later, Pechenik filed for divorce citing "irreconcilable differences."
