The Physical actress and Property Brothers host are ready to wed, after four years of dating.
Scott popped the question on Sunday during a family trip to Scotland, PEOPLE exclusively confirms. Deschanel’s two children — daughter Elsie, 8, and son Charlie, 6 — played a role in the special moment. Everyone was overjoyed and Deschanel, of course, said “Yes!”
In a photo shared, the couple are seen posing in front of the rugged Scottish scenery at the foot of a stone castle and smiling. Deschanel holds up her hand adorned with her incredibly unique ring, set with clear, pink and purple stones in a flower pattern.
The couple also announced the news in a joint post on their Instagram accounts on Monday afternoon. “Forever starts now” read the simple caption, which was accompanied by some smiling heart emojis and an infinity symbol.
Proposing in Scotland holds a special significance for Jonathan, who has often incorporated his heritage into key moments in his life. At his brother Drew’s 2018 wedding, for example both men wore kilts for the ceremony.
