“New Girl” star Zooey Deschanel is a new mom!
The actress welcomed a baby girl and her rep has confirmed she also secretly wed Jacob Pechenik. Double congrats!
Deschanel’s rep said in a statement, “I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl”.
She also confirmed Zooey and Jacob had quietly married. Court records show she tied the knot in Texas on June 21.
Jacob and Zooey announced their engagement in January after news broke that she was pregnant.
Their baby girl was reportedly born in Austin, Texas.
This is the first child for Deschanel, 35, and her producer husband, 42.
They decided to keep the baby’s gender a secret. She previously said, “It’s more fun,” Deschanel said. “Make it into a game!”
Deschanel was very careful with her diet during pregnancy. During her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, she said, “You can’t have sushi. You can’t have cheese that tastes good. You can have a little bit [of coffee], but I would have, like, four cups a day. And now I can have a half cup, which is a joke! It’s a total joke!”
Zooey’s big sister, Bones actress Emily Deschanel, is mother to two sons so will be a huge help if needed.
Her New Girl co-star, Max Greenfield, said of the Zooey, “[She’ll make a] fantastic mom.She takes care of the whole show, so I don’t think she’ll have a problem with the kid.”
