After 50 years of marriage Jonathan and Drew Scott have something special planned for their parents who have taught them a lot about love and marriage.
“Drew and Linda could take a lesson from mom and dad,” Jonathan notes of his twin and fiancee Linda Phan, who got engaged in December.
While their parents' romantic nature have clearly been passed down to the brothers, their preference for a low-key union may have skipped a generation.
Drew's epic proposal in a Toronto bistro certainly got a lot of attention. A professional recording of him singing Train's "Marry Me" played over the restaurant speaker and a giant Dr. Seuss-themed cake.
Linda and Drew are in the early stages of planning a destination wedding.
“They haven’t set a date yet, but I know that they’re really prepping and I think Drew is one of those guys who’s had his wedding planned since he was a kid,” Jonathan says. “I know it’ll be great.”
Drew is not the first brother to have tied the knot. Jonathan had been married once before.
“We were young, and there was a rush going into it,” he explains of his brief union.
After the relationship ended, he was single for a long stretch. He even continued to live with Drew after Linda moved in, in 2012, surprising their fans.
“People were always like, ‘Isn’t that weird?’ But there’s an ease to it,” Linda said. “You wake up and you go to work. It’s nice and really convenient to be able to have meetings with the people you live with.”
Drew and Linda ended up buying a place of their own in Los Angles while Jonathan and Jacinta are based in Toronto.

“They had originally eloped, so they never had a real wedding,” Jonathan explains during a Facebook Live stream. “So after 50 years of marriage, this August we’re going to Scotland and we’re going to renew their vows.”
His father Jim is a retired actor and director that moved from Scotland to Canada as a teenager. There he met and married Joanne, a paralegal. The couple now lives part time at the Las Vegas home Drew and Jonathan built for their family.
The family consists of older brother 41 year-old J.D. Scott and the twin 39 year-old brothers.
“There was always sibling rivalry but they build each other up, not tear each other down,” says Joanne.

As the brothers close in on 40, they look ahead to the future to make starting a family a big priority.
“I’m definitely looking forward to having kids,” says Drew. “Linda and I have talked about it, and we’ve considered adopting.”
Jonathan also feels the same way.
“I love kids, and I get along great with kids,” he says. “Plus I’m very immature, so that helps."
