Others remarked on the two different entertainment worlds colliding.
Is it common knowledge that Zooey Deschanel has been with a property brother for the past 4 years or have I just been out of the loop?

The pair have made several carpet appearances in support of one another over the years.
The pair first met on the set of “Carpool Karaoke” when they were filming an episode alongside their respective siblings in 2019. Years later in 2022, the couple appeared on the James Corden segment again, where they recounted several memories together.
This past fall, actress and TV host Drew Barrymore also spoke on the couple’s relationship with Deschanel, who was a guest on her show at the time.

It is unclear whether the couple plans to publicly share wedding planning details at this time. Deschanel’s fashion sense notably popularized the “twee” trends of the 2010s, and fans are already theorizing about her wedding dress. A wedding date is to be announced.
