The "New Girl" actress met "Property Brothers" co-host Jonathan and his identical twin Drew Scott when she and her actress sister Emily Deschanel were paired with the Scotts on an August 2019 episode of "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" and they "got on so well" they were dating within a month.
Now Zooey admits she was immediately attracted to Jonathan, as she drove the car during the TV episode, while he sat beside her in the passenger seat.
"We just got on so well," Zooey beamed during a Friday, June 11 virtual appearance on "Live with Kelly and Ryan". "Still. I'm always excited to see him."
And while everyone else struggles to tell the difference between her man and his twin brother, Zooey insists she can easily single out Jonathan.
"Some say he's the taller one... and Jon doesn't have a beard and Drew has a beard," she quips. "I honestly don't think they look that much alike but everyone else thinks they look just [identical]. I remember when we first met them, my sister was like, 'They're identical. How do you tell them apart?' And I'm like, 'They look so different.' "
The She & Him singer has previously been married twice - to film producer Jacob Pechenik from 2015 until 2019 and Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard, the father of her kids Elsie Otter and Charlie Wolf, from 2009 to 2012.
