The quirky New Girl actress, thirty four, and her producer boyfriend, forty two, are eagerly anticipating the arrival of their little one this summer.
“Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.” stated an excited mother to be.
Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik were dating last August, after she split from her boyfriend of two years, screenwriter Jamie Linden.
Later that month, Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik made their red carpet debut together at the 2014 Emmys at the Nokia Theatre in L.A.
Zooey Deschanel’s pregnancy overlaps with that of her famous big sister Emily Deschanel, who is currently expecting her second baby with David Hornsby.
Zooey Deschanel was previously married to Death Cab For Cutie lead vocalist Ben Gibbard, whom she divorced in 2012.
A self-proclaimed feminist, Zooey Deschanel has gone on record saying that she has no interest in having a child for the sake of it, nor in living up to societal expectations because it’s what’s done.
“Like every woman is dying to give birth! I don’t think so. Nobody asks guys that but when you go into a supermarket and every tabloid is like, Pregnant and Alone! Stuck in the 1950s ideal of how a woman should live her life. This brings out the fiery feminist in me.” she had stated a while ago.
Now if she is ready to have a baby, it’s clear from her past comments that she’d never have one without being truly ready to take that next step.
No word yet about the baby’s sex, but we hope it’s a girl because just imagine the adorable babydoll dresses a mini Zooey Deschanel could rock.
Here wishing both of them all the happiness in the world!!
