"Jacob and I are over the moon," the She & Him singer told People. "We are so excited to meet our little one."

Deschanel, 34, and her producer boyfriend, 42, will already have some play dates lined up for their little bundle of joy as the Elf actress' sister, Emily Deschanel, is also expecting! As E! News first reported, the Bones star is pregnant with her second child with husband David Hornsby.

Zooey and Jacob have been hot and heavy for quite some time now, dabbling in a lot of PDA over the past few months. The cute couple shared an intense kiss after having lunch together, and an eyewitness told E! News that they couldn't keep their hands off of each other throughout the meal!
