Zooey Deschanel is a mom. The "New Girl" star and Hello Giggles founder gave birth to a baby girl earlier this week in Los Angeles, according to Entertainment Tonight. "I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl," her rep says.

They began dating last year, two years after Deschanel's divorce from Death Cab for Cutie singer Benjamin Gibbard.
