The Vancouver-born star was spotted hand-in-hand with the former New Girl actress on Sept. 13, according to HollywoodLife, which obtained photos of them outside Little Dom’s restaurant in Los Angeles’ Silverlake neighbourhood.
“Zooey and Jonathan kept looking at each other and smiling and sat closely, cuddling constantly throughout their meal,” a source told the publication. “They looked very happy and casual… They seemed giddy about one another and held hands as they arrived and whispered to each other often. It was really sweet.”
A source later told People the romance is “new” for the two, “but they are having a lot of fun together.” A separate source told the publication Jonathan and Zooey met while shooting Carpool Karaoke.
On Sept. 6, Zooey and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, announced they were separating. The two were married in 2015 and have two children together: Elsie, 4, and Charlie, 2. On Sept. 14, Jacob spoke to HollywoodLife about their decision to separate.
“Everything is amicable and we have two beautiful children together,” he said. “We’ve been raising them and we’re going to continue to raise them, and take great care of them… I’m happy.”
Jonathan was married to Kelsy Ully from 2007 to 2010 and the couple divorced in 2013. From 2009 to 2012, Zooey was married to former Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard.
We’re happy Jonathan and Zooey are having fun together!
