Baby makes four for the extremely private family; the parents married in June 2015 and their first child, daughter Elsie Otter, arrived two months later. Like his sister, Charlie's middle name is also the name of an animal—albeit a slightly fiercer one.
Deschanel explained the reasoning behind her first child’s unique name on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in March of 2016. “Elsie’s kind of a classic name. A lot of people have grandmas and aunts named Elsie,” she said. “And then the middle name can be a little wild.”
We’re sure Elsie Otter is going to make for one great big sister. Congratulations to the happy family!
