Actress engaged just one week after announcing pregnancy!


Forget the January blues, as Zooey Deschanel's month has been pretty perfect so far!

Just last week the New Girl actress confirmed she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Jacob Pechenik, and now the pair are set to tie the knot this year too.

The news was announced by Us Weekly this evening,

Zooey is "over the moon" at the thought of welcoming a child this summer – but there's no news yet if the wedding will be before or after the little one is born.

The happy couple have only been publicly dating for five months – they were first seen together in August 2014, shortly after Zooey's split from screenwriter Jamie Linden.

We hope this marriage is second time lucky for Zoeey – she was previously married to Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard but the pair sadly split in 2012.
