Brief romance: Jacob and Zooey tied the knot in 2015 after meeting on the set of his comedy flop Rock The Kasbah, but they split in January 2019 and he filed for divorce later that year
Elsie and Charlie were transporting stuffed animals before loading them into their father’s white SUV.
Zooey was spotted leaning over to hug them before spending the day alone with her boyfriend.
The actress and her film producer ex-husband first met on the set of his comedy flop Rock The Kasbah in 2015, in which she starred with Bill Murray and Bruce Willis.
The two confirmed their engagement in January that year and married in June 2015, but they had separated in January 2019 and Pechenik filed for divorce later that year.
“After many discussions and a long period of consideration, we have decided that we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners,” the exes announced in a statement to the era. ;We remain attached to our company, to our values and above all to our children. Please respect our privacy at this time.
The two now share joint custody of their young children.

A month before Zooey and her ex belatedly announced their split, she started dating Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott after she and her sister Emily appeared with him and brother Drew on an episode of Carpool Karaoke. .
The couple, who celebrated two years together in August 2021, took their relationship to the next level in December by buying a house together that dates back to 1938.
“We’ve found our forever home and we’re embarking on this renovation,” he said last week during a Shop Today interview with Jill Martin.
“Our hope is that when it’s done, it stays in the family forever and ever,” he added sweetly.
Love at first sight? After they broke up (but before announcing the split), Zooey met Jonathan during an episode of Carpool Karaoke, and the two began dating soon after.
He revealed in his brother’s magazine Drew + Jonathan Reveal that the couple hadn’t even planned on buying a house and were just looking at properties in the area for fun because Zooey is also “obsessed with real estate “.
But once they found the house, designed by architect Gerard Colcord, it was love at first sight.
“As we parked the driveway, it just felt…magical,” he recounted. “It sat on just over an acre, and with its lush lawn and clumping California sycamores, it looked like a park.”
He added that it’s ‘refreshing’ that he and the Elf star have similar tastes when it comes to renovations, as he finds it more common for couples to have different goals when it comes to renovating old homes .
Jonathan was alongside Zooey earlier this month as she celebrated her 42nd birthday, which falls on January 17.
“Best (birthday) dinner,” she captioned a series of Polaroid-style photos she posted to Instagram of the two cuddling at the party.
