In a recent interview with E! News, Zooey said: "I'm really excited. I'm so excited. I'm just so excited to meet my baby! We're very excited."

We can tell!!

Following her pregnancy news, fans speculated if Zooey's New Girl character Jessica Day would now too be expecting. But dashing any hopes of Jess embarking on motherhood, the 35-year-old revealed her onscreen self will not have a little one on the way.

Instead, Zooey has been expertly hiding her baby bump on set.

"It's been pretty easy to hide in costumes so far," the actress claimed. "And we only have about four episodes left in the season, so we're doing pretty well!"
