2015 seems to be, until now, full of surprises for Zooey Deschanel (35), the New Girl star: last week a rep confirmed to E! News that she and boyfriend Jacob Pechenik are expecting their first child together and yesterday a new rumour popped out: the 42-year-old producer proposed to the She & Him singer, on her birthday, Jan.17. The love birds spent the special day on Catalina Island.
Deschanel and Pechenik, who have been dating since mid-2014, are working on her next movie together, Rock the Kasbah (also stars Bruce Willis, Bill Murrar and Taylor Kinney).
“Jacob and I are over the moon,” the Zoey Deschanel told PEOPLE earlier this month. “We are so excited to meet our little one.” The baby is due this summer.
This will be marriage no. 2 for Deschanel, as she was married to Death Cab for Cutie‘s vocalist Ben Gibbard, but they divorced in 2012.
