Zooey Deschanel is going to be a mom!
The 34-year-old New Girl star is expecting her first child with boyfriend Jacob Pechenik (a producer), 42. The baby’s said to be due this summer.
“Jacob and I are over the moon,” Zooey tells People. “We are so excited to meet our little one.”
Zooey and Jacob have been dating since August 2014. Indeed, their big relationship debut was on the Emmys 2014 red carpet, on August 25, 2014 (photos above).
And looks like Baby already has a play date in the works (literally): Zooey’s sister, Bones star Emily Deschanel, 38, is also pregnant. This will be Emily’s second child with her hubby, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor David Hornsby—they also have a three-year-old son, Henry.
