The nuclear family has long been a thing of the past, and family dynamics take on all kinds of forms now. For Zooey Deschanel’s family, it would seem that two father figures for her kids are co-existing pretty peacefully. In a new Instagram post, Zooey Deschanel honored both Jacob Penchenik and Jonathan Scott with a photo of the two men together with both holding up one of the kids on their shoulders. Check it out in the post below:The happy photo is pretty solid evidence that the family has taken a leaf out of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis’ book of blended family wins and are perfectly comfortable hanging out together as a full family unit. Even more evidence of this is the response Jacob Pechenik dropped in the comments of the photo, saying that it is his “absolute greatest privilege” to be the father of her two children and raise them together. All in all, it certainly seems as though the two have remained close and are expert co-parents.
It makes a lot of sense that the former couple would bring in Jonathan Scott as another supporting figure in their co-parenting journey. Talks of engagement between the Property Brother and actress have persisted for some time now, and the two are in the process of renovating their dream home together, which will certainly affect the kids as well.
However, one would assume that it won’t be a hectic or messy transition at all if an engagement does end up happening, given the family unit looks to be pretty well maintained and the dynamic seems to work. Fans are loving the dynamic that Zooey Deschanel seems to have with her family, too, as they’re flooding the comments with co-parenting praises. Many are saying that the group serves as an example of what a blended family should be.
Father’s Day can be hard for a lot of people who have had a loved one pass away or don’t have anyone that they can call dad. With this, Zooey Deschanel’s kids are definitely fortunate to have more than just one person in their life that helps fill the role. Although you won’t see it on our 2022 TV schedule, it seems Jonathan Scott has a TV idea involving Zooey Deschanel that could potentially see some more sneak peeks into their blended family. That could be pretty sweet, considering the love emanating from Deschanel’s recent post.
