Update: Zooey Deschanel's rep confirmed her engagement with Jacob Pechenik to People. Well, this New Girl actress sure is having a happy 2015. According to Us Weekly, Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik are engaged! No further details have been revealed about their engagement or their impending nuptials, but the news does come a week after Deschanel and Pechenik announced they're having a baby. I told you these two are having an all-around great beginning of a year. I'm sure it will get even better once they tie the knot (if the news is true, because they have yet to actually confirm the engagement) and welcome their little one into the world.
The two were first spotted in August 2014, after Deschanel and screenwriter Jamie Linden called it quits. Soon after, Deschanel and Pechenik made their debut as a couple at the Emmys.
Ever since then, apparently, the two have been inseparable and are now becoming one happy family. Other than being captured out and about by photogs, the couple have pretty much kept their relationship under wraps. It makes even more sense that they'd be keeping this time of their life private, because it is such a special moment and should be celebrated with close friends and family.
This will be Deschanel's second marriage, as she was previously married to Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard.
Congrats to the happy couple!
