Zooey Deschanel has MORE surprising news.

Congrats Zooey.

Actor Zooey Deschanel and her partner Jacob Pechenik are just a never ending supply of good news. The couple have confirmed through Zooey’s rep that they are now engaged.

Last week the 34-year-old perpetually gorgeous/quirky/adorable New Girl actor announced she was expecting her first child with her Jacob, a 42-year-old Hollywood producer.

Zooey confirmed the news herself yesterday, telling People magazine: “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.”

The ridiculously attractive, dark-haired couple certainly haven’t wasted any time: they started dating in the middle of last year after Zooey split from her boyfriend of two years, Jamie Linden. Zooey was previously married to Ben Gibbard from 2009, but divorced in 2012.

No word on when the baby is due, or whether the pregnancy will affect any filming schedules set for New Girl.

One thing we can confirm: there will be many a Deschanel baby playdate in future, because Zooey’s sister Emily is also pregnant; the Bones star announced last month that she’s expecting her second child.


Congratulations, you beautiful people.
