“I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl.”
According to Page Six, “insider sources” say the baby was born in Austin. (So, “please don’t move here” crowd, don’t tell this baby to go back to California.)
As for the wedding bells: At last report, Deschanel and Pechenik were engaged, and ABC reports that it is unclear when the pair married. Deschanel has been spotted with Pechenik around town lately, according to multiple reports.
Far be it from your friends at Team 360 to pander to the gossip rags — FAR BE IT — but this one bears mention. “New Girl” star, She & Him singer and bangs icon Zooey Deschanel, currently expecting a child, has been spotted around Austin recently alongside fiancé Jacob Pechenik, according to several reports by the Daily Mail.
(She was also spotted by yours truly on a Sunday evening at Justine’s Brasserie in April, and I would like to formally apologize to Ms. Deschanel for loitering so close to the window.)
Pechenik, a film producer, is based in Austin, according to Variety, so it makes sense that Deschanel has popped up in the Live Music Capital so often recently. She joins a roster of illustrious Austin-linked celebs, including Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock and Elijah Wood.
