Zooey Deschanel’s boyfriend Jonathan Scott is a lucky man and he realizes it. The New Girl Star and her man have been an item for two years, and he is proud of “dating up.”

Scott, 42, knows a good thing when he sees it. He recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight where he admitted that he “dated up” when getting with the Elf star.

“We just celebrated our second anniversary, yeah, and I know I am dating up.”

Deschanel, 41, and Scott have a good life together. He plans “to keep raising the bar and keep up with those expectations.”


The couple has been through a lot, including the pandemic. They’re still going strong as well, and they’re not shy about opening up about their happiness. Some might envy them, at least Scott likely expects plenty of men to feel a tinge of jealousy.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
