UPDATE 04/08: New Girl star Zooey Deschanel just announced the gender of her and Jacob Pechenik’s first born and it’s a …. girl!

But the two have more exciting news. Not only did the couple just welcome their first child, they also got married. Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik secretly tied the knot in late July after the birth of their baby girl. With all the hype surrounding celebrity couples it is not easy to keep a wedding private, but the two made the impossible possible.

Congrats Zooey and Jacob!


Congratulations Zooey Deschanel!

The New Girl star announced to People magazine last night that she’s expecting her first child with boyfriend Jacob Pechenik. She told the magazine: ‘Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.’

We’re pretty excited about her little one too because we have so many questions! Will Zooey’s signature polka dots transfer well to maternity wear? Will her baby be fed a healthy dose of indie music every night before bed? Will it come out of the womb wearing thick-rimmed Elvis Costello-esque glasses?

We’ll have to wait and see.
