Just over a month after her sister Emily Deschanel confirmed she's pregnant with baby no. 2, Zooey Deschanel's rep confirms toETthat the 34-year-old actress and her beau Jacob Pechenik, 42, also have a baby on the way!
"Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one," Zooey told People. She and her producer boyfriend have been dating since mid-2014 after the actress divorced Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard back in 2012.
Zooey's pregnancy may come as a surprise to anyone who read her interview in the August 2014 issue of InStyle. The She & Him songstress told the women's magazine that she despises answering questions 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.'"
