The 'Property Brothers' star proposed to the 'New Girl' alum last month in Scotland
On Thursday, the New Girl alum, 43, posted several snaps from the August trip, including sweet snaps of her two children — daughter Elsie, 8, and son Charlie, 6 — in an Instagram post that was simply captioned: “Europe things.”
The couple of four years got engaged in Scotland (Scott's ancestral home) before jetting off to Paris, where they hit all the tourist hotspots.
The first image in the carousel (top) featured a smiling selfie of the newly engaged couple in a Parisian garden wearing sunglasses, plus a cute sun hat for Deschanel.
Three of the pictures include Deschanel’s children taking in the sights during the trip. Elsie can be seen from the back taking in a massive historic hall featuring suits of armor behind its velvet ropes.
Another shows both Elsie and Charlie taking in the city views and a lake beyond from a stone lookout. And a third captures the two clearly over their mom and soon-to-be-step-dad's sightseeing agenda, lying down together on a bench in a museum.

PEOPLE confirmed the Physical star and the Property Brothers host’s engagement that happened on Aug. 13. Scott, 45, proposed to Deschanel during a visit trip to Scotland with Elsie and Charlie playing a role in that special occasion. Of course, Deschanel answered "Yes!"
The pair also announced the engagement via an Instagram post from Aug. 14 that featured the actress and her fiancé posing in front of a stone castle with Deschanel sporting an engagement ring. “Forever starts now!!! 🥰♾️🥰,” per the post’s caption.
Popping the question in Scotland is special for Scott, who has frequently referenced his heritage for important moments in his life. For instance, he and his twin brother and HGTV costar Drew Scott wore kilts for Drew’s wedding ceremony in 2018.
Following the couple’s engagement in Scotland, Scott shared his own photos via Instagram on Aug. 17 of the couple spending time in Paris. One of the snaps showed the two with the Eiffel Tower in the background, accompanied by the caption “Amour de ma vie ❤️,” translated in English as “Love of my life.”
Deschanel and Scott first met in August 2019 while filming James Corden's Carpool Karaoke. In October of that year, the two made their relationship Instagram official after going on a double date with Drew and his wife, Linda Phan, to Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights. In 2020, Deschanel appeared on the Scott brothers HGTV show Celebrity IOU.
A source told PEOPLE in 2019 about the couple’s chemistry: "He makes her laugh and he's so sweet to her," adding that "they bonded over a shared love of music."
Deschanel was previously married twice, first to Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard from 2009 to 2012. Her subsequent marriage to Jacob Pechenik lasted four years and both of them are parents to Elsie and Charlie. Scott’s previous marriage was to Kelsy Ully, a flight coordinator, from 2007 to 2010.
Last month, Scott marked the fourth anniversary of his relationship with Deschanel, posting on Instagram: "500 days of @zooeydeschanel …actually it’s been a lot more, but who’s counting anyway? 😆 4 years really flies by. Happy anniversary baby!!! 🥰."
