Zooey Deschanel, the queen of whimsy/chanteuse/Maxim beloved, announced her pregnancy today. It will be her first child, and the father is Hollywood producer Jacob Pechenik.
The New Girl star announced her pregnancy only a day after her former husband, Ben Gibbard, announced a new album with his band Death Cab For Cutie. Competing for headlines? Probably not. The queen of twee is unfailingly nice – she would never do a thing like that to an ex. OR WOULD SHE?
Maxim wishes Zooey the best on her upcoming pregnancy. It’s quite possible the baby will be made of yarn or born with a pair of oversize glasses already on.
Check out all the reasons we love her.
