You know Zooey as the ~quirky girl~ who starred in New Girl, Elf, and 500 Days of Summer.


And you know Jonathan as one half of the massively popular house-flipping show Property Brothers.

So, how did this all begin? Last week we learned that Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik, her husband of four years, were splitting up.

Their joint statement read: “After much discussion and a long period of contemplation we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners. We remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time.”

Then just a few short days later, exclusive photos were published of Zooey and Jonathan holding hands in LA after getting dinner, thus confirming the budding relationship.

But how did they even meet in the first place? A source told People that Zooey and Jonathan first met pretty recently while filming Carpool Karaoke, which paired the two HGTV brothers with Zooey and Emily Deschanel.

While the episode has yet to air, it's safe to assume from their excited social media posts that everyone had a blast...

One of us was very excited about taping @CarpoolKaraoke yesterday. Maybe two of us. @PropertyBrother X #DeschanelSisters @MrDrewScott @MrSilverScott

...and that ~romantic sparks~ were flyin'.

Looks like James Corden can now add "Matchmaker" to his resume...

...we salute you for this one!

The best way to end a baby shower is everyone yelling "WHAT?!?!?" upon discovering that Zooey Deschanel is dating a Property Brother.
