A rep for the New Girl actress has confirmed that Zooey and boyfriend Jacob Pechenik are expecting their first child together this summer.
In an exclusive statement to People, mum-to-be Zooey said the couple were "over the moon" about their happy baby news.
This will be Zooey's first child.
The 34-year-old has been dating Jacob since last year. She was previously married to Death Cab For Cutie musician Ben Gibbard until 2011.
In an interview last year, Zooey said that she was fed up with people asking her when she wanted to start a family.
She told InStyle: "When I was married, that was the first thing people wanted to know. Like every woman is dying to give birth! I don't think so. Nobody asks a guy that."
Zooey and Jacob made their red carpet debut as a couple at last year's Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, where they happily posed for photographers.
It's doubly good news for the Deschanel family these days as Zooey's big sister Emily is also pregnant!
Emily, who stars in Bones, announced in December that she's expecting her second child with husband David Hornsby.
Congrats to Zooey and Jacob!
