NEW YORK — "New Girl" actress Zooey Deschanel is expecting a baby.

She and her producer boyfriend, Jacob Pechenik, released a statement to People magazine on Tuesday saying they are "over the moon" and "excited to meet our little one," who is due in the summer.

The couple began dating last year.

Deschanel split from ex-husband, Ben Gibbard, lead vocalist of the band Death Cab for Cutie, in 2012.
