Zooey Deschanel Is Pregnant & She and Boyfriend Jacob Pechenik Are "Over the Moon”
The Deschanel family is about to get even bigger. Zooey Deschanel is pregnant with her first child, and it happens to be at the same time as her sister Emily Deschanel's second pregnancy. The New Girl star revealed to People that she and her boyfriend, producer Jacob Pechenik, are "over the moon" about the news, adding, "We are so excited to meet our little one." Aww!
Deschanel and Pechenik met on the set of their upcoming film, Rock the Kasbah , and started dating in mid-2014. They made their red-carpet debut at the Emmys in August, and have been spotted showing off some major PDA around L.A. ever since. Previously, Deschanel was married to Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard from 2009 to 2012, and then after her divorce, she dated writer and director Jamie Linden before meeting Pechenik. Surprisingly enough, Pechenik has a busier year coming up than his girlfriend — he produced Anne Hathaway's next musical film, Song One, and has Jennifer Aniston's next film She's Funny That Way and Kevin Costner's Black or White coming out this year, too. Looks like 2015 is going to be a supremely big year for both parents-to-be. Congratulations to the happy couple!
