New Girl star Zooey Deschanel has finally revealed the name of her daughter, three months after she was born.

Back in August, Zooey announced the arrival of her first child with husband Jacob Pechenik and while the couple have remained quite private when it comes to their baby girl, they have finally spilled the beans on their chosen moniker from the tot.

Spoiler: It's adorable.

Attending the Rock The Kasbah premiere in New York last night (19 October), Zooey was asked by People magazine what she had called her daughter.

The actress replied: "It's Elsie..." While her husband Jacob then added: "Otter."

"It's like the animal," Zooey explained. Elsie Otter. So sweet, right?

Three months ago, a rep for Zooey confirmed she and Jacob had finally become parents to little Elsie. And her arrival was cause for a double celebration, as it was revealed Zooey and Jacob had got married before welcoming their daughter, with the starlet's rep subtly adding 'husband' into the couple's statement.

It read: "I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl."

Zooey and Jacob's baby joy comes eight months after the pair announced their engagement in January. They had began dating in 2014.
