The 34-year-old actress has announced that she and her boyfriend Jacob Pechenik (42) are expecting their first child.
Deschanel, who earned her fame through roles in Elf and 500 Days of Summer, has been dating producer Pechenik since summer 2014. The couple drew attention when they went to the Emmy’s together, sparking interest in who Zooey’s mystery man was.
While he has no social media presence, Pechenik’s IMDB page shows that his production credits boast films such as Before Midnight by the Golden Globe-winning Boyhood director Richard Linklater.
Aside from her music career in the indie duo She & Him, Deschanel is best known for her lovable, quirky character Jess on the Fox sitcom New Girl.
Regarding the pregnancy, Deschanel has stated, “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.”
Zooey’s sister, Bones star Emily Deschanel, is also pregnant with her second child.
