Actress Zooey Deschanel, 34, is excited to announce that she and boyfriend Jacob Pechenik, 42, are expecting their first child together!
“Jacob and I are over the moon. We are excited to meet our little one,” Deschanel told People magazine.
Deschanel and Pechenik have been dating for several months and the couple will be joining Zooey’s older sister Emily Deschanel in pregnancy bliss, as she just announced her second pregnancy in early December 2014.
The Bones star Emily, 38, and her husband David Hornsby, 39, are already parents to 3-year old son Henry, meaning there will be lots of playdates for the Deschanel’s this summer when Zooey is due.
This will be the first child for the New Girl star who was previously married to Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard.
Gibbard and Deschanel shared a love of music and were engaged in December 2008 before tying the knot in September 2009.
Only two years later the pair announced their separation and Zooey officially filed for divorce on December 27, 2011 citing irreconcilable differences.
Deschanel and Pechenik confirmed their relationship at the 2014 Emmy Awards in August after the couple stepped out together for the event’s red carpet.
The two met on the set of the film Rock the Kasbah which was produced by Pechenik and stars Deschanel as well as Bill Murray, Danny McBride, Bruce Willis and Scott Caan. The film is set for release in late 2015.
