Zooey Deschanel and husband Jacob Pechenik expecting baby No. 2

Congrats are in order for Zooey Deschanel and husband Jacob Pechenik as they are expecting their second child together!

The actress confirmed to People that she is indeed pregnant with baby No. 2. She did not, however, say how far along she is or if they know the sex of the child yet.

Deschanel and Pechenik are already parents to a daughter named, Elsie Otter, who the actress gave birth to in 2015. At that time fans had no idea that the New Girl star and Pechenik were married until her rep broke the news along with the announcement of their daughter’s birth.

“I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl,” the actress’ rep said then confirming that Deschanel quietly wed Pechenik in June 2015 in Texas.

We can’t wait to see if the actress will have a “new girl” or boy.
