Zooey Deschanel Got Mom’d and Married!


Woah, Zooey Deschanel is taking on two new titles…mom and wife!

The actress and her new husband Jacob Pechenik welcomed their daughter at a hospital in Austin, Texas, People confirms.  The kid was born in late July, and I guess the two kept that and a wedding under wraps, which is pretty impressive if I do say so myself.

The New Girl star confirmed that she and producer Pechenik were engaged and expecting a baby together back in January, and man, did all this stuff come fast.

“Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one,” the mom-to-be said.

We are too. And let me guess- this kid is gonna have a hipster name like NO OTHER. Am I right?

Zooey Deschanel Is So Over Her Preggo Diet


Zooey Deschanel can’t wait to give birth…yeah for the miracle of motherhood and yada yada yaya BUT AND ALSO THE FOOD.

I get what she’s throwing down. The only reason I DON’T have a baby is because I can’t stop drinking and eating cheese for five seconds (also, it’s for the greater good). Anyhow, The New Girl star, 35, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel‘s late-night show on Thursday, March 26, and told him all about how fascist it is to be on a preggo diet.

“You can’t eat so many things when you’re pregnant!” Deschanel lamented to Kimmel via US Weekly. “You can’t have sushi. You can’t have cheese that tastes good,” she explained of pregnancy. “You can have a little bit [of coffee], but I would have, like, four cups a day. And now I can have a half cup, which is a joke! It’s a total joke!”

Also on the no-no list, of course, is booze. “You can’t have alcohol,” she said. “I miss that, I like wine.”

I hear you, girl.  But all delicious foods you can’t eat aside, Deschanel also shared that she is keeping the gender of the kid a mystery.  The (500) Days of Summer star said “We are gonna be surprised. It’s more fun. Make it into a game!”

Sure- a cheese-less, wine-less, coffee-less game.  Sounds fun.

A Portrait Of Delusion: Zooey Deschanel Thinks She’s Not Anything Like Her “New Girl” Character

69th Annual Golden Globe Awards 2012: Red Carpet Part 1

Suuuure you aren’t.  Suuuure.

Apparently, Zooey Deschanel wants EVERYBODY to know that she’s nothing like her character Jess in real life, so let it go (blinks eyes, wears vintage dress). The star tells Huffington Post Via Us Weekly:

“I don’t always identify, perhaps, with the way that I’m portrayed in certain public contexts. I try to stay away from that sort of thing,” she told the site, explaining that the word “adorkable” doesn’t reflect who she is offscreen. “That was something that was calculated, you know what I mean? That was our marketing department at Fox and they did a really good job with our first season, but that’s a word that describes the character that I play, not me. I don’t personally have identification with that word myself.”

But also, you know, she doesn’t care what people think!  She’s spunky and her own woman!

“I know that sounds crazy because you’re supposed to care about what people think of you, I guess, as an actor, but I really don’t,” Deschanel, who is pregnant with her first child, told The HuffPost. “Obviously I’m grateful for all of the opportunities that I’ve had thus far, including New Girl, but I don’t think I’ve ever met a person who knows me use that word to describe me, so it’s not of any consequence to me.”

And she also wants you to know she LIKES a break from quirky. You know, to play another quirky character in…SHOCKER, an indie film:

“It’s nice to be able to do something different from what I’ve been doing for the last five years on TV. It used to be that I’d play a lot of different characters, so it’s nice to get the opportunity to do something really different, too, because of how much playing one character -– as fun as it is -– is kind of the same thing every day,” she said of her role in upcoming indie flick The Driftless Area. “It’s nice to get to stretch.”

The jig is up Jess- I mean, Zooey.  Just embrace the fact that you’re exactly the character you play on TV. If you REALLY wanted to break the mold, you’d do some crazy drama where you play an overweight serial killer with a shaved head or something.  And YEAH, I’d watch that.

Zooey Deschanel Is Engaged!

Zooey Deschanel & Jacob Pechenik Stop For Snacks In Studio City

Zooey Deschanel is not only pregnant, she’s engaged!

News of Jacob Pechenik popping the question come on the heels of  news that the two are expecting their first child together. Deschanel is due to give birth this summer…I wonder if the two will marry before then?

Pechenik and the New Girl actress first stepped out together in August after Zooey’s split from screenwriter Jamie Linden, whom she dated for two years. They presented themselves as a couple at the 2014 Emmys, posing together at the Nokia Theatre.

Zooey was previously wed to Death Cab for Cutie vocalist Ben Gibbard, but they split in 2012. Sounds like Zooey is liking the Chad Michael Murray MO of doing things– marriage and pregnancy ASAP!
