Double congratulations are in order for Zooey Deschanel! Just one week ago, she announced her pregnancy and now she is engaged to her baby daddy, Jacob Pechenik!
Zooey Deschanel and her boyfriend of 6 months, Jacob Pechenik, are not only expecting their first child, but it has been confirmed that they are also getting married — so exciting!
Zooey Deschanel Engaged To Jacob Pechenik
Zooey and Jacob are getting married according to Us. The adorable couple first stepped out together in August of 2014 and made their red carpet debut at the 2014 Emmys.
This will be Zooey’s second marriage. She was previously married to Ben Gibbard, lead vocalist for Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service.
The two split in 2012. After splitting with Ben, Zooey dated screenwriter Jamie Linden for two years and they split right before she started dating Jacob. Her future husband is actually the producer on her upcoming film with Bill Murray, Rock the Kasbah.
Zooey Deschanel Pregnant
Just last week, Zooey announced she and Jacob are expected their first child together!
“Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one,” Zooey told People on Tuesday, Jan. 13, confirming the news herself.
There is no word yet on how far along Zooey is, or how her pregnancy will affect any filming schedules set for her hit show, New Girl. We’re sure it will all work out! Wouldn’t it be awesome if they worked her pregnancy into the show story line?!
We couldn’t be more thrilled for Jacob and Zooey! HollywoodLifers, if you could offer your congratulations to the couple, what would you say? Let us know in the comments below!
