He’s looking for his dream woman, but if he doesn’t find her soon, Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott plans to adopt a child. In an exclusive interview with People, the reality TV star and producer said that he wants to have children by the time he’s 45, regardless of whether or not he’s found a partner. Scott, who recently celebrated his 41st birthday in Mexico, has been single for a year — but he hasn’t given up on love just yet.
“I’ve dated a lot in my life, and I’ve dated every kind of person you can imagine,” Scott told the outlet. “I I just want to be around people who bring energy and when you walk away you feel good about yourself and good about them. That’s it. The other people, I don’t need them.”

What a joy and an honor to be asked to open Michelle’s show in #Toronto. I hope you have a chance to read #Becoming. If you believe in Family. If you believe in being a positive role model for children. Or if you believe in inspiring others by injecting good into the world…then you’ll love the read #FamilyValues #ForceForGood
Although there are perks to the single life, Scott is ready to settle down and start a family. “I’m very blessed in a lot of ways,” he told People. “I can buy what I want and I can go anywhere in the world.” (Gee, don’t brag about it or anything, Scott.) “But at the end of the day,” he added, “coming home to that one person that you know has your back, there’s no better feeling.”
In fact, single ladies take note, because Scott also told the outlet he’s on the lookout for “sexy, cool, courageous women.” We know you fit the bill, so if Scott is your type and you’re hoping to have kids soon…you should probably slide into his DMs, right?
One of the main things Scott is looking for in a partner is someone who is as eager to be a parent as he is. “I want to be a dad, so it’s important for me to have a partner who would play a key role in that,” he explained. “When we film our shows I get along so great with the kids, and I like the idea that I can use what I believe to be good to shape the mind of a little human.” Ah yes, mind-shaping — the classic parenting motivation.
And if he doesn’t find his soulmate by the time he’s 45? Scott’s got a plan for that, too. “I have said to myself that if I don’t find the right person I think I would probably adopt on my own, because I think I would be a great dad.”
We agree, and we love that Scott is considering adopting rather than settling just for the sake of having kids with a partner. He’ll make a pretty classy dad, single or otherwise.
