Huge congratulations are in order today, as it has been revealed that actress Zooey Deschanel is expecting a baby.
A representative for the New Girl star confirmed that she and her partner, Jacob Pechenik, are expecting their first child together.
In a statement released to People magazine, the 34-year-old said: “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.”
Zooey and producer Jacob have been dating since mid-2014.
It certainly is an exciting time for Zooey, whose sister, Bones star Emily Deschanel, is also expecting!
Emily, who is already mum to three-year-old son Henry, announced back in December that she and husband David Hornsby are due to welcome their second child together.
It looks like Zooey’s little one will have plenty of playdates coming up with his or her little cousins!
Congratulations to Zooey and Jacob on their wonderful news.
