Posted on

Not only is Zooey Deschanel on the way to motherhood, she’s also on the way to the altar!

The New Girl star is engaged to 42-year-old producer Jacob Pechenik, her rep has confirmed to PEOPLE.

The couple, who have been dating since mid-2014, are also expecting their first child together.

“Jacob and I are over the moon,” the 35-year-old mom-to-be told PEOPLE earlier this month. “We are so excited to meet our little one.”

The baby is due this summer.

In a happy twist of fate, Zooey’s sister, Emily Deschanel, is also expecting a baby. It’s her second child with husband David Hornsby.
