Deschanel gave birth to baby boy Charlie Pechenik recently. The couple have one daughter already, Elsie, who was born in 2015. According to her representative, “Zooey, Jacob and their daughter Elsie are overjoyed to welcome the newest member of their family.”
Zooey Deschanel has been keeping busy over the past few years. Her hit television show New Girl has been running for six seasons. However, in a recent interview, she said that motherhood has allowed her to slow down a bit.
“I’ve slowed things down a bit. I think it’s good for your whole self–your creative self, your professional self, and just your soul–to take a little time for yourself and your family,” she said in an interview with Redbook shortly after she and Pechenik got married.
She added, “I’ve never really felt like an adult. But I think it’s a huge accomplishment to have a child, so maybe I feel like an adult for that reason.”
