Last summer, Zooey Deschanel went public with her boyfriend Jacob Pechenik, a director she worked with on some movie called Rock the Kasbah a while back. Things are apparently going well, especially since Zooey just announced that she’s pregnant with her first child!

The New Girl star is expecting her first child with Jacob Pechenik this summer, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one,” Deschanel tells PEOPLE.

The mom-to-be, 34, and her producer boyfriend, 42, have been dating since mid 2014.

OH GOD, not the dreaded “over the moon” statement! That’s THE WORST! Why do people do it? Why?!

Anyhow, congrats to Zooey – she’s a nice lady and I’m sure the baby will be cute. Not so sure this relationship is going to go the long haul, considering they only met last summer, but… ya never know!
