The things we do for love! Zooey Deschanel made a grand gesture for husband Jacob Pechenik, a source discloses just in the brand new issue of Us Weekly.
Previously, the New Girl celebrity has declined to identify with any particular faith. “I do not attach myself to any one religion,” Deschanel, whose mom is Roman Catholic and father is Quaker, has said. Myself had been raised in the ‘you can be whatever you desire’ kind of manner. And in the long run, myself was like, ‘Eh.'”
But before marrying producer Pechenik the 35-year-old mom of Elsie, 3 months, professed a new pair of beliefs. “Zooey converted to Judaism for Jacob,” an insider reveals to Us.
And Deschanel’s new life continues to be divine. Adds a source near the couple, “they are loving the baby and union!”
The Driftless Area star and her husband welcomed their very first child in July. The brand new mom explained her daughter’s name, Elsie Otter, in a interview about the Today show last month. “We only really liked the name Elsie and then we both love otters, they’re quite sweet and they’re also bright,” she shared.
“They use tools…they hold hands while they sleep… They are amazing animals.”
