Linda Phan is the fiancee of Property Brothers star Drew Scott. The two dated for six years before Drew popped the question last December.
Read on to learn more about Drew’s fiancee, Linda Phan.
1. They Became Engaged in December 2016
Before their official engagement in December 2016, Drew and Linda fielded rumors that they were engaged on countless occasions.
In January 2016, Starcasm wrote, “Drew Scott– one half of HGTV’s famous Property Brothers duo– is in a long-term relationship with girlfriend Linda Phan, and the couple have been fending off marriage rumors for almost as long as they’ve been together.”
On April Fools Day 2015, the couple posted two videos to Drew’s Twitter in which they pretended they had become engaged. In the first video, Linda holds up her hand, sporting a beautiful “engagement” ring. In the second video, they joke that they were just showing off their nails– not the ring. The caption reads, “Oops! Forgot to play the full video! We LOVE manicures! Lol #AprilFools”.
2. She Is the Creative Director of ‘Scott Brothers Entertainment’
Phan doesn’t just work with Drew and Jonathan– she’s their creative director, as well. According to the Scott Brothers website, Jonathan and Drew were actors before foraying into real estate and construction. They even founded their own production company, Scott Brothers Entertainment, which is “a major arm of the Scott Brothers lifestyle brand.”
Phan is the Creative Director for the Scott Brothers brand. In the words of the company’s website, she is “responsible for developing concepts that contribute to the company’s growth across the platform”, by managing projects, digital content, product and merchandise, marketing campaign, and philanthropic efforts.
3. They’re Very Open About Their Relationship
At first, Drew and Linda were quiet about their relationship. Over the past couple of years, though, they’ve posted multiple photos of one another on their social media accounts. In an interview with Your Tango in 2013, Drew discussed he and Phan’s relationship and how small gestures are what really make it work. “My girlfriend and I are both workaholics. We love what we do and that we can work side by side. The small gestures are romantic to me— it makes me smile every time I find funny notes in my bag when I go away on business trips.”
Just because they are tying the knot doesn’t mean Linda is totally prepared for her impending HGTV fame, though. On November 22, Property Brothers at Home: Drew’s Honeymoon House premiered on HGTV. The show stars Phan alongside Drew and Scott. Speaking about the series, and having her personal life documented on camera, Phan told People, “I’m definitely still not used to it… But working with Drew and Jonathan for the past seven years — they make everything so easy, and make everyone feel so comfortable. So I really did feel right at home.”
When it came to designing their first house together, Drew admits he was skeptical. Luckily, it all paid off in the end. Drew tells HGTV, “I was actually nervous at first, having Linda come in. I know she has an architectural design background but we’ve never actually designed a house together… I was wondering how we were going to mesh. Were we going to butt heads too much? I was blown away by Linda’s ideas.”
4. There Were Rumors She and Drew Had a Child
Given the number of years they’ve been together, it’s not all that surprising that the rumor mill has churned out some pregnancy rumors. In January 2016, when Linda posted a photo of her and Drew hugging a young child, Property Brothers fans freaked out, wondering if the child was theirs.
Eventually, Phan addressed the rumors and revealed that the little guy in the photo is her nephew. Fans will notice that he shows up in a lot of Phan’s and Scott’s Instagram photos.
5. There’s Over a One-Foot Height Difference Between Phan and Scott
Drew and Jonathan are both quite tall– the former stands at 6’4″. Linda, on the other hand, is just 5’2″. Phan is also seven years younger than Drew– he is 39, while she is 32.
Linda and Drew met in Toronto in 2010, at a Toronto Fashion Week event, according to Pop Sugar. They’ve been together ever since.
