(Newser) – With the news of Zooey Deschanel's split with husband Jacob Pechenik still fresh, the New Girl star is reportedly inspecting some new relationship real estate. A source tells People the 39-year-old actress and singer is now dating Jonathan Scott, 41, of the HGTV series Property Brothers. "It's new, but they are having a lot of fun together," the source says. Hollywood Life has pics of the couple holding hands on Sept. 13 as they arrived at a restaurant in Silver Lake, Calif. "Zooey and Jonathan kept looking at each other and smiling and sat closely, cuddling constantly throughout their meal," a source tells the site. "They looked very happy and casual" and "seemed giddy about one another."

Sources tell both People and ET Online that the two met while filming Carpool Karaoke with their siblings, Emily Deschanel and Drew Scott, who does Property Brothers with his twin. In early August, Drew Scott posted a pic on Instagram of the four of them together in a car with the caption "Brothers and sisters everybody sing." Hollywood Life's source notes Deschanel has been separated from Pechenik "for several months" and that "she wasn't really looking to date, but she and Jonathan hit it off unexpectedly." Scott was also previously married, to Kelsy Ully, whom he split from in 2010 after three years of marriage. Deschanel and Pechenik's breakup was announced earlier this month; they married in 2015. She also had a three-year marriage to Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard that officially ended in 2012. (Read more Zooey Deschanel stories.)
