Zooey Deschanel is Pregnant with First Baby

The Short of It

Zooey Deschanel is pregnant! Looks like Zooey is jumping on the baby-on-board bandwagon with the likes of Keira Knightley, who also recently announced that she is pregnant. The "New Girl" star and She & Him singer announced this week that she's expecting her first child with her boyfriend, movie producer Jacob Pechenik.

The Lowdown

Zooey, 34, and Jacob, 42, started dating over the summer of 2014 and are expecting the arrival of their little bundle of joy later this year. The couple is over the moon and can't wait to meet their new baby.

Zooey and Jacob worked together on the upcoming film "Rock the Kasbah," which will hit theaters later this year. They went public with their romance last September, when they attended the Emmy Awards together.

The Upshot

Baby Pechenik is not the only baby being born in the Deschanel family this year. Zooey Deschanel's sister and "Bones" star, Emily Deschanel, is expecting her second baby this year with her husband, David Hornsby.

Congrats to Zooey and Jacob and to the entire Deschanel family!
