The news that Zooey Deschanel is going to be a mother was exciting not only to the actress but also to her New Girl co-stars. One of them, Jake Johnson, 36, told E! on Saturday that he was ‘really excited’ for the 34-year-old Zooey. Jake did, however, reveal that the actress’ pregnancy would not be written into the current season of New Girl.
This will be the first child for Zooey and her 42-year-old boyfriend, Jacob Pechenik, who have been dating since the middle of 2014. Their baby is expected at some point during the summer of 2015.
