Zooey Deschanel is expecting her second child with husband Jacob Pechenik.

The New Girl actress, 37, was seen sporting a baby bump while filming the show on Wednesday, and the exciting news was confirmed by Us Weekly.

The star and her husband are already parents to 18-month-old Elsie Otter.

Meanwhile, Zooey previously spoke about her daughter’s unusual middle name, admitting she and her spouse wanted something “wild” to go with her “classic” first name.

Jokingly asked by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres if Otter is a family name, she quipped: “In a sense that we’re all mammals.”

She then added: “We thought Elsie is a classic name – a lot of people have grandmas and aunts named Elsie. And then we were like the middle name can be a little bit like wild.

“We both found that we had a mutual love for otters. There were some more normal middle names… but I saw that nobody else likely had the middle name ‘Otter.'”

Zooey was married once before, to Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service lead vocalist Ben Gibbard.

The two wed in September 2009 but filed for divorce in December 2011, citing irreconcilable differences.

She started dating Jacob in August 2014.
