Last week, we told you that Zooey Deschanel was pregnant with her first child and now she is engaged!
The 34-year-old New Girl star and her producer beau are now prepared to walk down the aisle!
Deschanel confirmed last week that she’s pregnant with her first child with new beau Jacob Pechenik, 42.
Zooey said in a statement, “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one”.
Now just a week later the quirky actress is engaged!
There are no details on the proposal or her engagement ring, but hopefully we’ll catch a glimpse at her next red carpet event.
Zooey and Jacob’s baby is due this summer.
Her older sister Emily, who stars on the television show Bones, is also pregnant. Emily is expecting her second child with husband David Hornsby.
Zooey’s fiance is a producer. They worked together on her new movie Rock The Kasbah, about a washed-up American music manager who discovers a girl with an amazing voice in Afghanistan. Bruce Willis and Kate Hudson also star in the film.
The couple first went public in August, spotted walking holding hands in Venice Beach, California.
The 500 Days of Summer actor split from her boyfriend of two years, Jamie Linden, in July. She began dating Jamie shortly after her divorce to Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Hubbard was finalized.
Deschanel and Hubbard married in September 2009, but split just after two years of marriage.
