Congratulations are in order for Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik—the couple is expecting their second child together, a source confirms to People.

And from the looks of it, these two are definitely going to have their hands full once the new baby arrives. The extremely private duo, who were married in a secret ceremony in June of 2015, are already proud parents to a 1-year-old daughter named Elsie Otter Pechenik. The New Girl star recently opened up about her uniquely-named little one on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she revealed that the child already has quite a large vocabulary.

"She is really special. She says a lot of words but she’s really obsessed with hats right now," Deschanel shared. "I think it’s just she’s really proud of herself that she recognizes the hat. And then she started pointing—like if she walks in my closet, the hats are up on the top shelf and she goes, ‘Hat!’ like it’s very exciting to her." But hats aren't the only headgear that the cutie is fond of. "She likes wearing little bows and stuff in her hair," the actress shared.

We have a feeling that Elsie is going to make a great big sister! We wish this growing family all the best.
