Zooey Deschanel celebrates Father’s Day with Jonathan Scott, ex

Zooey Deschanel celebrated Father’s Day with her blended family.

The 42-year-old “New Girl” posted a sweet photo to Instagram of her boyfriend, Jonathan Scott, and her ex-husband, Jacob Pechenik, ringing in the holiday together on Sunday.

“I am so grateful that my children have these two wonderful boys in their lives: @jonathanscott and their father @jacobpechenik,” she wrote.

In the social media upload, 44-year-old ‘Property Brothers’ held Deschanel’s 6-year-old daughter Elsie on his shoulders while 50-year-old Pechenik held their 5-year-old son Charlie.

“It’s definitely my greatest privilege,” the producer commented on the post.

Scott, for his part, gushed, “One big happy family.”

The HGTV personality began dating Deschanel in 2019. Earlier this month, the couple debuted their “dream home” in Los Angeles.

“We literally designed this house so…I hope it will stay in the family forever, our kids will take it over, and then their kids will take over,” he said on the show “Today” after the purchase of the five-bedroom, eight-bathroom home in April.

Prior to her romance with the contractor, Deschanel married Pechenik in June 2015. They welcomed Elsie the following month, followed by Charlie’s arrival in May 2017.

When the former couple called it quits in September 2019, they began co-aging with their little ones.

“After much discussion and a long period of reflection, we have decided that we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners,” the duo wrote in a joint statement. “We remain committed to our company, our values ​​and most importantly, our children.”

The exes maintained an “amicable” dynamic, Pechenik told Us Weekly in 2019.

“We have beautiful children together who are like that because we were the parents,” said the founder of Venture Films Production. “We raised them and we will continue to raise them and take good care of them.”

The former spouses were given joint custody of Elsie and Charlie when their divorce was finalized in June 2020.
