"The kids' dad is a great dad. We have an amazing relationship there as well," Scott told ET of Pechenik. "I love it when the kids draw photos. They draw Mommy and Daddy and Jonathan. It's really sweet."

He added that "everything [Zooey] does she just knocks it out of the park."

"We were laughing because she did Celebrity IOU and she on the record says she hated the demolition," said Scott.

"It was loud and noisy and dirty, and she did it because she loved her recipient [best friend]. It's the same when she's onstage singing with She & Him, when she's doing a film or a TV show. Everything she does she pours her heart into it—but mostly being a mom. She's just the most incredible mom anybody could ever ask for."
