A year- it is what Jacob Pechenik needed to realize the bond with Zooey Deschanel. After dating for just a year, American producer Jacob not shared the wedding vows but also welcomed their first baby.

Announces Pregnancy News Before Wedding!

Jacob Pechenik’s and his then-girlfriend, Zooey Deschanel, made their first public appearance in the Emmy Award on 25 August 2014. While their affair was brewing, the pair got photographed sharing a kiss during the shoot of Zooey’s 2015 film, Rock the Kasbah, which he produced, on 21 July 2015.

The Rock, the Kasbah producer, got engaged to girlfriend Zooey on 17 January 2015. The celebration at Cataline Island became a double treat for the engaged couple, who also celebrated Zooey’s birthday. 

Just a week before their engagement, Jacob gushed E! News about expecting his first child with his then-fiancee. Zooey was raised by a Quaker father and Roman Catholic mother. However, she chose to adopt her husband’s religion of Judaism for their matrimony. 

The pair exchanged wedding vows on 21 June 2015 in a very low-key affair in Austin two months before the arrival of their first child.

Together, they are blessed with two children; Elsie Otter Pechenik and Charlie Wolf.

The pair welcomed their first child as a daughter, Elsie, on 3 August 2015. Zooey revealed the real reason to keep her daughter’s middle name as Otter (animal) was: They are lovely, and they are also smart.

Both the couple were also able to keep an utter silence on Zooey’s second pregnancy until ET on 9 May 2017 confirmed that the newly-parents are blessed with a boy, Charles.

Previously, Zooey tied the nuptials with American songwriter Ben Gibbard in 2009 and ended their three years of marriage in 2012. Her other affair was screenwriter Jamie Linden, and after their relationship went fizzled, her budding relationship with Jacob started.

Split With Wife

It comes as a shock to find out that Jacob and Zoey have called time on their four-year-long marriage in September of 2019. The pair who share two children, Elsie and Charlie, have decided they would best be together as friends rather than husband and wife. In a joint statement issued jointly, they stated:

After much discussion and a long period of contemplation we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners, and co-parents rather than life partners, we remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time.

They got married in 2015 in a low-key wedding two months before the birth of their first child. And things seemed to go as planned until recent news regarding their decision to split hit the news.

As for why the pair have decided to separate has not yet been disclosed, but regardless, they still plan to remain good friends with one another.

Officially Divorced?

Jacob Pechenik and his wife Zoey have called it quits. Jacob filed a divorce formally in Los Angeles on Tuesday, 22 October 2019. He also requested legal and physical custody of two children. In addition to that, Jacob cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for splitting the ex pair.

The 47-year-old producer further added that the pair decided to part their ways as a friend during a long contemplation period. They have intended to go to business partners and co-parents even after the split.

The pair had been separated since early January 2019. Jacob and Zooey also issued a joint statement on their business, values, and, most importantly, their remaining commitments about giving children's priority.

They both thanked their family, friends, and fans for respecting their privacy. Former duos are already set up to embark on a new page in their life after the official split.

After Their Split; Ex-Wife's New Man

The couple announced their split in the first week of September 2019, calling off their married life of four years. Despite the split, Jacob stated that their separation was amicable and are raising a couple of children together. Also, he added that he is happy, and he encloses a bond as a close friend with his ex-wife, Zooey.

Besides that, the former couple also agreed to share their business, Lettuce Grow, which tends to change America's food supply chain. Also, it aims to educate the consumers about where their food comes from.

Within a week of their separation, Jacob's ex-wife, Zooey was linked with Jonathan Scott, one of the Property Brothers in the mid-September 2019.
