Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel have gotten engaged after four years of dating.

The HGTV star, 45, and the actress, 43, announced their engagement news in a joint Instagram post on Monday, August 14.

"Forever starts now," they captioned a selfie of the couple in which Zooey was showing off her unique engagement ring.

Jonathan and Zooey also added smiling heart emojis and the infinity symbol to their post.

The Property Brothers and Brother vs. Brother star popped the question to the Physical and New Girl star on Sunday, August 13 during a family trip to Scotland, People reported.

Jonathan incorporated Zooey's daughter Elsie, 8, and son Charlie, 6, into the sweet marriage proposal, to which Zooey said, "Yes!"

Jonathan apparently popped the question in front of a stone castle with a band that features large clear, pink and purple flower-shaped stones.

Jonathan is very proud of his Scottish heritage. Not only did his twin brother and fellow HGTV star Drew Scott wear a kilt to his wedding ceremony in 2018, but the men's father, Jim Scott, reportedly emigrated from Scotland to Canada as a teenager.

The Property Brothers star met Zooey four years ago when they filmed an episode of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke. The lovebirds starred in the episode alongside Drew and Zooey's sister, Bones actress Emily Deschanel.

After a fun filming experience, the group of four found a spot in Los Angeles to sing karaoke on their own.

"They were all talented and spontaneous and they had a really fun time shooting the show," a source told People at the time. "They became friends after and then started talking as friends and realized there was more to it."

Jonathan and Zooey went out on their first date in September 2019, and then they confirmed their romance later that month when they attended a taping of Dancing with the Stars and sneaked a kiss while sitting in the front row.

"I am seeing someone," Scott told Us Weekly in September 2019.

"I'm a very private person, so I don't typically talk about that. It's definitely special for me because I am the guy who raises the bar in what I'm looking for in a partner. I was caught a little off guard. It was definitely a pleasant surprise."

In October of that year, Jonathan and Zooey went Instagram official with a funny Halloween picture in which Jonathan was holding his girl in his arms. The couple had enjoyed a night out at Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights with Drew and his wife Linda Phan.

Jonathan and Zooey later attended his older brother J.D. Scott's Halloween-themed wedding for which they dressed as Batman and Catwoman, and then the couple quarantined together through COVID-19.

"He makes her laugh and he's so sweet to her," an insider previously told People, adding how "they bonded over a shared love of music" and Christmas carols.

During an April 2020 episode of Drew and his wife Linda's podcast, "At Home," Jonathan admitted he was "flirting so hard" with Zooey when they first met.

"The show's producer had to cut a bunch of it out," he reportedly joked. "I thought I was playing it cool."

Jonathan and Zooey purchased a five-bedroom home in June 2020, and then that winter, Zooey made her HGTV debut on Jonathan and Drew's hit show Celebrity IOU.

Zooey appeared on the show's Season 2 premiere in December 2020 and surprised her best friend with a drastic home renovation.

Prior to getting romantically involved with Jonathan, Zooey was married to Jacob Pechenik for four years. She and Jacob, who share Elsie and Charlie, split in 2019 and their divorce was finalized in May 2020.

Zooey's first marriage was to Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard. They got married in 2009 and divorced in 2012.

Jonathan was also previously married to flight coordinator Kelsy Ully. He and Kelsey wed in 2007 and broke up in 2010.

The Property Brothers star was also in a long-term relationship with Jacinta Kuznetsov, a producer at the Scott brothers' production company, but they split in April 2018.
