The “New Girl” series star, 39, and producer, 47, friday afternoon in a joint declaration announced their split.
Their last public appearance together was at the 2018 Heal The Bay’s RECREATE The Beach Awards Gala in-may.
in a discussion with PEOPLE, a rep of the couple said “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 added “We remain committed to our business, our values and most of all our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time.”
Pechenik and Deschanel got married in the summertime of 2015, a couple of months after confirming their engagement. They welcomed their initial child, daughter Elsie, July in. She’s now 4. The couple shares son Charlie, 2.
Despite having equivalent professions (and for Deschanel, having a family group history of Television and film), the actress revealed she and her hubby “don’t the do TV thing” with their children.
Deschanel also noted that “you don’t realize what a type of selfish existence your home is in until you have got kids.”
“To them, I’m just Mom,” she informed PEOPLE earlier this full season. “They don’t really watch TV, in any case. They don’t really watch anything. It’s fundamentally books and coloring books and playthings and stuff.”
Deschanel was married to the business lead singer of Loss of life Cab For Cutie previously, Ben Gibbard for 3 years (2009 to 2012)
