Zooey Deschanel Engaged To Ben Gibbard

Zooey Deschanel Engaged To Ben Gibbard

Earlier today, we reported that Yes Man actress Zooey Deschanel got engaged earlier this month.

That part is 100% true, but not to AFI bass guitarist Hunter Burgan.

A source close to the couple tells that Zooey, 28, is happily engaged to Ben Gibbard, the lead singer of Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service.

Reps for the couple would not comment on their personal lives.

Congrats to Zooey and Ben!

I may have squealed when I read this.

They’re such adorable, lovely, great music making people. I hope they’re very very happy together.

I didn’t even know they were dating…

Sweet Jesus, I can’t breath – and I’m an astmatic so that’s is a really bad thing!
I’ve been of Zooey since Almost Famous, can’t believe that she’s engaged. Tillykke tillykke tillykke!!

Oh that seems like an awesome couple! I didn’t even know they dated. But I love Zooey and I love Death Cab so congrats to them!

He is a sweetheart with a pumpkinhead.

Wow. Thats a shocker. She reminds me so much of Katy Perry. He lost weight. Cool news.

No, no, no! She’s supposed to marry me!

Ooooh damn, sorry M. Ward Ben got her first. Ya snooze ya loose?

that is so awesome

im so happy for ben! hes a personal friend of mine and i can vouch for how much they are in love.

WHOA! I thought she was dating some other Indie dude. Hard to keep track of her BF’s. She’s had alot. Surprising she didn’t get engaged to Jason Schwartzman, since they dated for so long.

I love them both and them getting married it insanely cute

she&himfan @ 12/30/2008 at 12:09 am

seriously? this is great, but i thought that she was with m. ward? they make such wonderful music together and i saw them perform, and they just seemed to have such great chemistry. i guess i was wrong…

What a lucky lucky guy!!1 She was supposed to marry me!! even though im much younger… lol… but still!!!
