Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel is a mummy!

Actress and singer Zooey Deschanel has given birth to a healthy baby girl, her first child with husband Jacob Pechenik.

The New Girl star, 35, confirmed her pregnancy in January and their engagement one week later. The couple got married in secret and have only just announced it with the birth of their first child.

Their little girl was a surprise for the pair as they decided not to find out the baby's gender before the birth because "it's more fun," said Deschanel.

She's also promised there won't be any post-baby body pics any time soon. "Haven't we all seen those pictures of a sexy new mom in a bikini after one month? I will not be that person," she told Cosmopolitan.
