Zooey Deschanel recently opened up about her relationship dynamics with fiancé Jonathan Scott, revealing who plays the “passenger princess” in their family.

The 44-year-old actress shared insights during an exclusive interview with PEOPLE about her new partnership with Vera Bradley.

Deschanel explained that both she and Scott contribute equally to their relationship but in different ways. “I’m obsessive about packing everyone’s suitcases down to the second — I want to be fully prepared for everything,” she said.

Meanwhile, Scott, 46, takes charge of logistics, planning their schedules, and managing itineraries. “Jonathan ensures everything is well taken care of, including time management,” she added.

Despite their balanced contributions, Deschanel revealed that her children, daughter Elsie, 8, and son Charlie, 6, hold the title of “passenger princesses.” “They just enjoy the ride and eat the snacks,” she said with a smile.

The couple, who got engaged during a family trip to Scotland in August 2023, are planning their wedding with a focus on intimacy and loved ones.

In May, Scott shared details with PEOPLE about their upcoming nuptials, emphasizing the importance of being surrounded by friends and family. “We’re not planning to do a crazy, extravagant wedding. It’s going to be pretty intimate,” he said. The couple also plans to host a local celebration for friends.

Deschanel and Scott first met in 2019 while filming an episode of Carpool Karaoke with Scott’s twin brother Drew and Deschanel’s sister Emily.

After four years of dating, Scott proposed during their family vacation in Scotland, with Elsie and Charlie playing a special role in the moment.

Following the proposal, the couple shared their joy on Instagram with a heartfelt message: “Forever starts now.”
