"Property Brothers" star Jonathan Scott credits his happy home life to the "no BS" policy he and his brother created.
The "Property Brothers" star Jonathan Scott has a special way of parenting which he thinks is what makes his home happy. Scott has been with actress Zooey Deschanel for the last four years. They have a blended family with Deschanel's two children, 6-year-old Charlie and 7-year-old Elsie, who she shares with her former husband Jacob Pechenik. according to ScaryMommy.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the reality TV personality explained that he is inspired by the mantra he and his brother, Drew Scott, created over time to make peace. He said, "It honestly just stems from what Drew and I created. We have a 'no BS' policy. If there's ever anything that's troubling us, we get it out before it turns into something bigger than it needs."
He appreciated his partner for her conflict-resolution skills: "Zooey also has the greatest conflict resolution skills of anyone I've ever known. She's incredible. Our communication keeps everything together."
Scott also gives a lot of credit to the kids' father, Jacob Pechenik. The 45-year-old said: "The kids' dad is a great dad. We have an amazing relationship there as well. I love it when the kids draw photos. They draw Mommy and Daddy and Jonathan. It's really sweet."
Scott and Deschanel met in 2019 while filming an episode for Apple TV+'s "Carpool Karaoke." Since then, their professional lives made them run into each other frequently. Reportedly, in 2020, Scott renovated Deschanel's best friend Sarah's home for an episode of "Celebrity IOU" with the Property Brother.
Speaking about his girlfriend, he said: "Everything she does she just knocks it out of the park. We were laughing because she did 'Celebrity IOU' and she on the record says she hated the demolition. It was loud and noisy and dirty, and she did it because she loved her recipient [best friend]. It's the same when she's onstage singing with 'She & Him' when she's doing a film or a TV show. Everything she does she pours her heart into it -- but mostly being a mom. She's just the most incredible mom anybody could ever ask for."
Earlier this year, he spoke to TODAY about how it feels to be a dad. "I always knew I would be a great dad — former clown, magician, I can build stuff — and it's been incredible," Scott explained. "You see your life transform, your priorities become your kids, and when they have a performance that they're doing at school, or working on some of their homework, or whatever it might be, it's a joy."
On the show, "Celebrity IOU", the Scott brothers help Hollywood celebrities express their gratitude to individuals by surprising them with over-the-top home renovations. "There's nothing that compares to when you see how this is going to change the lives of these families and also with all the celebrities," Drew told ET.
"They're not just handing over money and saying, 'Make this pretty.' They're in there with their own hands, doing things they've never done or that they're not comfortable with. They're still doing it."
