New Girl star, Zooey Deschanel and her partner Jacob Pechenik are expecting their first baby!
The pair couldn’t be more excited. “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one,” Deschanel told People magazine.
The couple have been dating since 2014, where they worked together on her new movie Rock the Kasbah, which is about “A washed-up music producer [who] finds one last shot at redemption with a golden-voiced young girl in Afghanistan.”
The news may come as a surprise to some of you as Deschanel told InStyle Magazine she was over talking about starting a family.
“When I was married, that was the first thing people wanted to know,” she said. “Like every woman is dying to give birth! I don’t think so. Nobody asks a guy that. And you go into a supermarket and every tabloid is like, ‘Pregnant and Alone!’ Stuck in this 1950s ideal of how a woman should live her life. That’s not something that defines me at all.'”
It looks like things have changed and we couldn’t be more excited about the baby news!
