Our favourite quirky girl, Zooey Deschanel, has confirmed that she is expecting her second baby with husband, Jacob Pechenik.
The couple made the announcement this week and, surprisingly, made another announcement that fans were certainly not aware of!
Zooey and Jacob revealed that they got married in secret in August of 2015. That’s close to two years of keeping a secret!
The couple are already parents to 18-month-old, Elsie Otter, who was born in July 2015.
Speaking about baby number two on Jimmy Kimmel, Zooey said that the hardest part about being pregnant, is the restrictions on food. She said that there are so many things you can’t have as a pregnant woman, that it drove her insane.
“You can’t eat so many things when you’re pregnant! If I was vegan, I’d just be like … ohhh,” she told Kimmel.
Ironically enough, Zooey used to be a vegan. However, her allergies to eggs, dairy, wheat gluten and other foods made it hard to maintain a vegan diet and stay healthy.
She continued, telling Kimmel that she really hates not being able to have coffee or wine – and let’s be honest, what woman doesn’t crave coffee or wine!?
“You can’t have sushi. You can’t have cheese that tastes good. You can have a little bit [of coffee], but I would have, like, four cups a day. And now I can have a half cup, which is a joke! It’s a total joke!…you can’t have alcohol. I miss that, I like wine,” she said.
Congratulations, Zooey and Jacob!
