Zooey Deschanel Is Engaged to Jacob Pechenik
Congratulations are in order for Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik! Days after announcing Zooey's pregnancy with their first child, the couple have confirmed to the Huffington Post that they are also engaged to be married. Zooey and Jacob first went public in August 2014, after Zooey split from her boyfriend, Jamie Linden, after two years of dating.
Zooey, who is reportedly due to give birth at some point this summer, told PEOPLE just how excited she and Jacob were to welcome a child into their lives, saying, "Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one."
This will mark Zooey's second marriage. She married Death Cab For Cutie frontman, Ben Gibbard, in 2009. The couple split in 2011, after two years of marriage, though things were rumored to have ended amicably.
We wish Zooey and Jacob all the best with both their impending marriage and baby on the way!
