Zooey Deschanel Gives Birth & Reveals Secret Wedding All At Once

Zooey DeschanelActress Zooey Deschanel has given birth to a girl! And that's not the only big news for her and husband Jacob Pechenik. News has also surfaced that the couple secretly married on June 21 in Texas.


Talk about a lot of surprises!

In fact, while 35-year-old Deschanel and her producer husband announced they were expecting in January, the couple chose to keep the baby's gender a secret, too.

"It's more fun," Deschanel explained. "Make it into a game!"

I love how this couple kept not just one, but two major events under waps: their baby's gender and their wedding. It's so hard to keep secrets this big, especially when you're a celeb!

But I think secrets do add a level of mystery and excitement. Plus, that way, they could keep these major moments all about them. Rather than worrying about a gazillion guests and tabloid coverage, they could focus on each other and their soon-to-be-born baby.

Congratulations to the couple!
