Zooey Deschanel may be best known for playing a frazzled teacher on the critically acclaimed series New Girl, but in real life, she’s very down to Earth. Deschanel went through a lot in her personal life before becoming a mom. After a failed marriage in 2012, Deschanel took some time before finding her true love. in June 2015, she married film producer Jacob Pechenik, and the couple went on to have two children together. They welcomed a daughter in 2015 and a son in 2017. Sadly, Deschanel and Pechenik separated in 2019, but they continued to work together to co-parent their children. Raising your children with your partner can be tough, but co-parenting separately is even harder! Despite the challenges, Deschanel has never hired a nanny to help raise her children, instead preferring to enjoy every moment with them.
