Zooey Deschanel shocked Hollywood with an interesting choice for her baby name, but she probably didn’t surprise “New Girl” season 5 cast. Seeing how Zooey Deschanel is an odd ball, her husband probably jumped at the odd choice for their baby name.
According to E! Online , the 35-year-old actress told NBC’s Today Tuesday that her baby name is Elsie Otter Pechenik.
Why? She answered, “Well, we just really like the name Elsie, and then we both love otters. They’re really sweet, they’re also smart, they use tools to keep their favorite tools, they hold hands while they sleep. There’s so many amazing things about otters. They’re wonderful animals.”
“New Girl” star added, “I love otters. My husband [Jacob Pechenik] really loves otters. She better love [otters]. We don’t know yet; she’s only 3 months old. She’s going to love them.”
Let’s hope that her sister Emily, who also had baby around the same time that Zooey did, tried to oppose this ridiculous name for Elsie.
According to InStyle , “This past June, Emily welcomed her second son with husband David Hornsby, while Zooey simultaneously married fiancé Jacob Pechenik, and gave birth to their first child (a girl!) just a month later. Talk about being siblings!”
Having a baby at the same time means that they are going through very similar experiences. We wonder if they come together to share any baby stories!
“New Girl” actress has definitely taken the commitment to be available to her baby by letting Megan Fox take some spotlight on the show. While the fans had split opinions on this “New Girl” season 5 cast news, baby mama seemed totally fine with it. Zooey Deschanel even endorsed Megan Fox via a Twitter shout out!
Maybe this openness and love comes from having just named her baby after her favorite animal.
According to Belfast Telegraph, “Zooey has kept her family affairs extremely private, especially since giving birth, but the star took to Twitter on Wednesday to gush about her daughter’s new-found delight.
“New Girl” star tweeted, “I wish I could be half as entertained by ANYTHING as my daughter is by this plastic mobile. #lifegoals.”
Because of this big changes in her life, “New Girl” season 5 cast seemed fine taking on a new member on their show.
