There’s about to be a new girl — or boy! Zooey Deschanel is pregnant with her first child, she and boyfriend Jacob Pechenik revealed today.

“Jacob and I are over the moon,” Zooey, 34, told People. “We are so excited to meet our little one.”

Zooey and Jacob, 42, began dating last year. They were first spotted locking lips during a hike in August and then made their public debut that same month at the Emmys. Jacob is a producer known for Jobs, The Skeleton Twins and Before Midnight. The pair met during filming for the upcoming comedy Rock the Kabash.

Adding to the excitement of this time in their lives, Zooey’s sister, Bones actress Emily Deschanel, recently announced she’s expecting her second child. Both Deschanel sisters are due in Summer 2015.
