“New Girl” TV star Zooey Deschanel is pregnant with her first baby! Get details about this much-loved actress and her pregnancy here.

According to Glamour Magazine, Deschanel has been with her boyfriend Jacob Pechenik for six months. The first time that reports of the two dating can be traced back to August 2014. The 34-year-old actress had just split from Jamie Linden, a screenwriter who was her boyfriend of two years. Prior from Linden, Deschanel was married to Ben Gibbard from “Death Cab for Cutie.” Their divorce was finalized in 2012.


During the 2014 Emmys, the “New Girl” actress made her red carpet debut with the 42-year-old producer at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. This confirmed the couple’s relationship to the public. After just six months of dating, the two are already expecting their first child together.

“Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one,” Deschanel told Express.

Deschanel has previously worked with Pechenik on the movie “Rock the Kasbah.” According to Express, the movie tells the story of “how a washed-up American music manager in Afghanistan discovers a girl with an amazing voice.” Along with Deschanel, Kate Hudson and Bruce Willis will also star in the movie.

Deschanel’s sister, Emily, is currently also expecting her second child with David Hornsby. With this, Deschanel is sure to get some great advice on how to handle her pregnancy and still be healthy.

According to Us Weekly, Emily shared information about her pregnancy at a “Bones” party.

“I work with a nutritionist to make sure I have the protein that I need. It’s so weird. I just get thirsty. You have to drink more water and I can only drink so much water. I used to drink a ton of [fluids] and now I’ve hit my limit so I think of a variety. Once I get thirsty, I’ll want lemonade or a sparkling water. Maybe it is citrus fruits!” she said to Us Weekly.
