Congrats are in order… again.

Weeks after Zooey Deschanel welcomed her first child with new husband Jacob Pechenik, her co-star Max Greenfield has become a father for the second time. The American Horror Story actor and his wife Tess Sanchez are celebrating the birth of their son Ozzie James, who was born in Los Angeles yesterday. 

Ozzie weighed 6lbs 12oz, and is a little brother to the couple's five-year-old daughter Lilly.

Max and Tess announced their second pregnancy back in April, but they were far more relaxed with the pre-baby prep this time around. "You know, it's the second one. With the first one, you have the nursery set up when you find out that you're pregnant. 'Let's do it!' This one, you're like, 'It will be fine. We'll figure it out.'" Max told reporters back in June.

The second-time parents got married five years ago after meeting through their work in the TV industry – Tess is a casting director at FOX, the studio behind New Girl.

As well as getting to grips with a new born and preparing for the fifth season of New Girl, Max is also gearing up for a seriously challenging role in American Horror Story: Hotel later this year. For the show, in which Max will portray a crazed drug addict, he has had to undergo a pretty extreme physical transformation.

"He cut off his beautiful hair and dyed it and then we had to let the roots grow in," series creator Ryan Murphy revealed earlier this month.

"I think he's lost 30 lbs, which is odd because his wife is due to have a baby any day now, so she's nine months pregnant and he's living on celery water. She's not happy about that. Yesterday I talked to him and his waist is down to, I think, a 27. He's really committed to it, and he looks amazing."

With two kids at home, Max is gonna need more than celery water to energise himself…
