Zooey Deschanel, the quirky star of the New Girl, has announced she is expecting her first child with her partner Jacob Pechenik. 

The 34-year-old actress shared the news with People magazine, revealing “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.”

The bub will be the first child for both Zooey and Jacob, who started dating mid way through last year after meeting on the set of Rock The Kasbah. 

It is a particularly exciting time for the Deschanel family, with Zooey’s sister Emily currently expecting her second child with her husband David Hornsby. The pair are also parents to 3-year-old Henry.
