We already knew that Bones star Emily Deschanel was pregnant. In a weird coincidence, turns out her sister and fellow actress Zooey Deschanel is pregnant, too.

The New Girl star confirmed to People that she’s expecting her first child, with boyfriend Jacob Pechenik.

“Jacob and I are over the moon,” the 34-year-old actress told People. “We are so excited to meet our little one.”

Deschanel has been dating Pechenik, a 42-year-old producer, since mid-2014. No word yet about the baby’s sex — but we hope it’s a girl because just imagine the adorable babydoll dresses a mini Zooey Deschanel could rock.
