ABC quotes the actress’ rep:

“I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl.”

According to Page Six, “insider sources” say the baby was born in Austin. (So, “please don’t move here” crowd, don’t tell this baby to go back to California.)

As for the wedding bells: At last report, Deschanel and Pechenik were engaged, and ABC reports that it is unclear when the pair married. Deschanel has been spotted with Pechenik around town lately, according to multiple reports.
