She already has her hands full with a hit television show and an 18-month-old toddler, but Zooey Deschanel can expect 2017 to be even more exciting as sources confirm she and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, are expecting their second child later in the year.
Zooey’s Big Baby News!
The New Girl star, 37, is already a mum to Elsie Otter, who was born in July 2015. The adorable little girl was born just months after Zooey and Jacob got married and one month after Zooey’s sister, Emily, welcomed her second son, Calvin.
Another Animal-Themed Baby Name?
Zooey’s daughter’s name was certainly one of the more unique ones of 2015, especially her middle name!
Zooey spoke to Today about why the couple chose such an interesting middle name for their daughter, stating both she and Jacob “love otters — they’re very sweet and they’re also smart.
They use tools … they hold hands while they sleep, there’s so many amazing things about otters. They’re wonderful animals.”
Will Zooey and Jacob continue with their animal-themed middle name for their second bub?
Wolf perhaps? Maybe Fox? Bear seems to be pretty popular these days too! There are a number of cute animal-themed names for them (and anyone else expecting in 2017) to consider (have a look at some of them here).
