The One With the Secret Marriage and the Secret Baby


Begin freak-out New Girl fans! News has just broken that not only has Zooey Deschanel given birth to a healthy baby girl, she has also secretly wed her fiancé Jacob Perchenik. Her rep confirmed the happy news to PEOPLE magazine earlier the evening.

"I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, are the new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl," she wrote.


The pair who've been dating since mid-2014 announced their pregnancy on Jimmy Kimmel earlier this year. Keeping the gender a mystery, Deschanel said "we are going to be surprised. It's more fun, you know? Make it into a game." 

Pechenik popped the question on 17th January earlier this year on Deschanel's 35th birthday on Catalina Island, one-week after the couple announced they were expecting.

Both parents have kept the pregnancy and marriage private and reportedly given birth to their first-born in Austin, Texas late July.

As much as both like to remain private about their personal lives, I can't wait to see a mini Zooey - please let her have those big blue eyes!
