Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik have only been dating for six months, but has revealed she is pregnant!
The New Girl star confirmed she is expecting her first child with the producer.
Zooey Deschanel, 34, said in a statement, “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one”.
The baby is due this summer.
Her older sister Emily, who stars on TV’s Bones, is pregnant with her second child. The 38-year-old actress’ husband is actor David Hornsby.
Zooey’s boyfriend and baby-daddy is a producer, whom she previously worked with on her movie Rock the Kasbah.
He has also produced 2013’s Devil’s Knot and 2014’s She’s Funny That Way.
Deschanel split from her boyfriend of two years, Jame Linden, in July. She began dating Jamie shortly after her divorce from singer Ben Gibbard was finalized.
Zooey and Ben tied the knot in September 2009 but they split in 2011 after just two years of marriage.
In early 2014 Zooey said she hates being asked if she is ready to start a family.
The actress said, “Nobody asks guys that. And you go into a supermarket and every tabloid is like, ‘Pregnant and Alone!’ They are stuck in the 1950s ideal of how a woman should live her life. This brings out the fiery feminist in me.'”
