It's a double whammy of wonderful news from Zooey Deschanel this morning, as her rep has confirmed to E! News that she's tied the knot AND given birth to a baby girl. That's right; as well as planning the most secret of wedding ceremonies with Jacob Pechenik, the New Girl actress has become a mom. Those sneaky celebrities.
Before the birth, Jacob and Zooey had no clue if they were having a boy or a girl, as the actress told Jimmy Kimmel in March: "We are going to be surprised. It's more fun, you know? Make it into a game."
However, she added: "The last time [they went to the doctor], the technician was like, 'Just so you know, I always use the pronoun he. That's my habit.' She set it up because we were paranoid. We didn't want to find out."
There's no news yet on when or where the wedding ceremony took place, but the couple got engaged in January on romantic Catalina Island. Naturally, we're thrilled for them, but if someone doesn't show us Zooey's wedding dress, we're going to have a Jess-esque, Dirty Dancing-fueled breakdown...
Congratulations to the happy couple on your wedding and your baby girl!
