Zooey Deschanel called things off with her husband on September 6... but she seems to already be moving on with a "Property Brothers" star!

In new photos obtained by Hollywood Life, Zooey and Jonathan Scott are shown walking hand in hand on September 13 in Silver Lake. They're all smiles, and look very much like a couple.

An insider told Hollywood Life of their date at Little Dom's restaurant, "Zooey and Jonathan kept looking at each other and smiling and sat closely, cuddling constantly throughout their meal. They looked very happy and casual."

Zooey, 39, and Jonathan, 41, met filming a "Carpool Karaoke" segment with James Corden in August. At the time, Zooey had come out of her four-year marriage to Jacob Pechenik, with whom she has a daughter, Elsie, 4, and a son, Charlie, 2.

Jonathan was previously married to Kelsy Ully from 2007-2010, and last year was dating Jacinta Kuznetsov.

As the images hit the news, Zooey's estranged husband spoke to Us Weekly about the situation, saying, "Everything is amicable and we have beautiful children together that are that way because we were the parents."

The exes share a business together, Lettuce Grow, a subscription service for growing veggies. Pechenik said of their working relationship, "I think we both know what our strengths and weaknesses are, and then turn to each other for suggestions or advice on the other’s expertise."

Pechenik's diplomatic comments are in keeping with the statement the couple released upon their separation, which read: "After much discussion and a long period of contemplation we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners. We remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time."
