New Girl's Zooey Deschanel Is Expecting — Will Jess Be, Too?

Zooey Deschanel Pregnant Pregnancy New Girl Season 4

Should New Girl‘s über-crafty Jess start knitting a pair of baby booties?

Following recent news that star Zooey Deschanel and fiancé Jacob Pechenik are expecting their first child this summer, sources confirm to TVLine that the Fox comedy will not write the pregnancy into the series’ storyline.

Deschanel is the second Fox actress — and member of her family — who’ll receive a visit from the stork this year. Her sister (and Bones lead) Emily Deschanel is expecting her second child; that pregnancy, like her first, will be written into the show.
