AceShowbiz - Loved-up actress Zooey Deschanel has expressed her gratitude for her boyfriend Jonathan Scott for helping her ride out a rough 2020.
The "New Girl" star began dating the "Property Brothers" home renovation regular in August, 2019, and while the last 12 months have been difficult for many people, she's thankful she had Jonathan by her side to put a smile on her face.
Posting pictures of the couple together on social media, Zooey wrote, "My 2020 MVP (Most Valuable Player) was this guy, who always made me feel happy in spite of a weird and uncertain year. Hoping 2021 is full of silver linings for everyone (sic)."
The sweet post comes after Zooey marked her one-year anniversary with Jonathan over the summer after meeting during a TV taping for "Carpool Karaoke".
She wrote on Instagram at the time, "One year ago today I met this kind, caring, hilarious, generous, creative, nerdy, handsome and all around incredible human."
"I am so grateful for every smile, kiss, hug, snuggle, laugh, scrabble game, escape room, breakfast, lunch and dinner we share together. Even during the weirdest year for humanity I want a million billion more with you (sic)."
In his own Instagram tribute, reality TV star Jonathan insisted meeting Zooey had changed his life "forever."
He wrote, "How time flies when you're having the best time of your life. Who would've known that exactly one year ago my life would change forever. When I count my blessings, I count you twice."
