Zooey Deschanel quietly got married and gave birth to a baby girl, Gossip Cop has learned. A rep for the “New Girl” star tells Gossip Cop, “I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl.”

Gossip Cop is told Deschanel and Pechenik quietly exchanged vows in Austin, Texas on June 21, and welcomed their daughter a month later there as well.

In mid-January, Deschanel announced that she and Pechenik were expecting their first child. She said, “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.” A little more than a week later, the two confirmed that they were also engaged.

The baby girl, whose name has yet to be released, is the first child for both Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik, a producer. This is Deschanel’s second marriage. She was previously wed to Death Cab for Cutie rocker Ben Gibbard.

Deschanel’s baby girl will certainly have close playmates. Her actress sister Emily Deschanel gave birth to her second son in June. Gossip Cop would like to congratulate the new parents and newlyweds!
