Zooey Deschanel welcomes baby girl

The actress has welcomed her first child

New Girl star Zooey Deschanel is a mother! The actress has welcomed her first child, a daughter, after first announcing that she was pregnant back in January. A representative for the A-lister confirmed the happy news to Us Weekly on Monday.
And as if her baby joy wasn’t enough, Zooey’s rep has also confirmed the actress and her fiancé Jacob Pechenik have wed! The low-key couple got engaged shortly after announcing they were expecting, and now it looks like the private pair have tied the knot in secret.
“I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, are new parents to a beautiful baby girl,” Zooey’s rep said in a statement.
Zooey, 35, and her producer husband Jacob, 42, met on the set of upcoming comedy Rock the Kasbah.
While the couple were "over the moon" about their baby news when they first announced it to People, you won't see Zooey doing any post-baby-body photoshoots now that her daughter has arrived!
"Haven’t we all seen those pictures of a sexy new mom in a bikini after one month? I will not be that person," she told Cosmopolitan.
"I’ve always gone my own course and never been someone who had the need to be super skinny."
Congratulations to the new parents – and newlyweds!
