In the same statement, her rep also revealed that Zooey and Jacob had tied the knot in a secret ceremony. They kept that SO quiet!

"I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl,"her rep said.

The couple announced their baby joy in January, saying they were "over the moon".

In February, Zooey literally couldn't hide her excitement when speaking to E! News: "I'm really excited. I'm so excited. I'm just so excited to meet my baby! We're very excited."

Zooey and film producer Jacob began dating in 2014 and got engaged January this year. Zooey was previously married to Death Cab For Cutie musician Ben Gibbard until 2011.

Double congratulations!
