Zooey Deschanel is playing favorites when it comes to her "best" boyfriend. 

The New Girl alum, who is the executive producer and host of the new game show The Celebrity Dating Game, spoke to Us Weekly about why she's so smitten with her Property Brothers star boyfriend Jonathan Scott. The cute couple has been dating since 2019, and have been inseparable ever since. 

"I just think Jonathan is just the nicest person in the world," she shared with the magazine. "So, I'm just really lucky. I just try to be as nice back as, you know, he is. And it works."

When asked by the outlet if she would ever consider trying The Celebrity Dating Game out for herself, she said no way. "I have the best boyfriend in the world, so I don't even think about doing something like that," the 500 Days of Summer star explained of Jonathan, who she first met on the set of Carpool Karaoke

This is hardly the first time that Zooey, who was previously married to Jacob Pechenik and Ben Gibbard, has waxed poetic about her boyfriend. In April, she posted a sweet, "sappy" birthday tribute to Jonathan on Instagram

"Happy birthday to my kind, sweet, wonderful, hilarious, clever, generous, caring, handsome gentleman who sometimes orders pizza and grilled cheese at one meal," she shared. "I love you always and in all ways. I don't want too seem sappy or hyperbolic but the simple truth is: I'm the luckiest girl in the world."

The feelings are certainly mutual. In January, the HGTV star explained why he adores Zooey so much to People

"She's a very considerate person, and that's what I'm looking for," he shared. "I had said before that the most important thing for me was a sense of humor. But you have to be kind, and she definitely is."
