There’s another new girl in town! No it’s not a surprise addition to the hilarious sit com’s cast.
Zooey Deschanel and husband Jacob Pechenik have welcomed their first baby together. A representative for Zooey confirmed with the news with People magazine.
"I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl.”
It has also been confirmed that the 35-year old actress and Jacob did indeed tie the knot, making two surprise announcements in one weekend.
Page Six reports that’s that baby girl was born in Austin, Texas late last month.
The New Girl star confirmed to People magazine in January that she and her producer husband Jacob were expecting their first child together, and that they were engaged.
She said: “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.”
Zooey kept most of her pregnancy details quiet, including the sex of the baby. She however reveal some of her early struggles. She told Jimmy Kimmel that she found cutting out certain foods pretty difficult.
“You can’t have sushi, you can’t have cheese that tastes good.”
In March she said that they wanted to keep the baby’s sex a surprise, but that it did take a bit of work:
“The last time the technician [said], ‘Just so you know, I always use the pronoun he — it’s just my habit.’ She set it up because we were paranoid.”
Further details of the pairs supposedly top-secret wedding ceremony have yet to be revealed.
Congratulations to the happy couple and their new little one!
