Zooey Deschanel ‘engaged’

Zooey Deschanel is to marry boyfriend Jacob Pechenik, according to reports.

The New Girl actress only confirmed that the couple are expecting their first child together last week. But it seems the good news has just kept coming for the 35-year-old as it has been reported that she is now set to wed her 42-year-old beau.

Us Weekly confirmed the news on Wednesday. It will be the second marriage for the actress. She was previously wed to Death Cab for Cutie vocalist Ben Gibbard but they split in 2012.

The newly engaged pair made their first official appearance together on the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy’s in August last year.

The whirlwind romance led to the announcement last week that they were expecting.

“Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one,” she told People magazine.

The brunette is due in the summer and the baby will grow up with plenty of playmates. Her older sister Emily, 38, who stars in TV show Bones, already has three-year-old son Henry with her husband David Hornsby and the couple are currently expecting their second child.

While Zooey is yet to comment on the news on social media or to the press, she will no doubt be thrilled with the belated birthday present, having turned 35 on January 17.
