Congratulations are in order for Zooey Deschanel! The New Girl star is expecting baby number two with hubby Jacob Pechenik. The couple welcomed their first child, Elsie Otter, in August 2015, while simultaneously announcing via Zooey's rep that they had gotten hitched two months prior. Now Us Weekly is confirming that the 15-month-old little girl will soon be a big sister.


No word yet on how Zooey's show New Girl will handle real-life pregnancy this time around, although we'd kind of love to see how this works into her show -- and how (and if!) Zooey's character Jess would handle motherhood on screen. With all of her guy besties to help out, we're thinking there could be some major Three Men and a Baby call-out moments if the series wants to go there.

Preach, Zooey! And for now, just bask in that awesome pregnancy glow.
