Personal Life

In September 2019, Jacob and Zooey Deschanel confirmed they were separating after four years of marriage:

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,” they said.

“We remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children.[6][8]

On October 22, 2019, Pechenik filed a dissolution of marriage with minor children petition at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles.[6][8]

The two secretly tied the knot in June 2015.

Jacob and Deschanel share two children: Elsie Otter, 4, and Charlie Wolf, 2.[6][7][8]
