Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Perchenik
Zooey Deschanel is "so excited" to meet her unborn baby.
The 'New Girl' star, who recently confirmed she is expecting her first child with fiancé Jacob Pechenik, admits she is overjoyed to be pregnant.
The 35-year-old actress said: "I'm really excited. I'm so excited. I'm just so excited to meet my baby! We're very excited."
The brunette beauty still has to hide her growing baby bump on the set of the comedy series because her character Jess isn't going to be pregnant.
She told E! News: "It's been pretty easy to hide in costumes so far! And we only have about four episodes left in the season, so we're doing pretty well."
The actress will have approximately five months off soon as production on the current series will wrap up in early March.
Meanwhile, Zooey's co-star Jake Johnson, who plays Nick Miller on the show, thinks she's going to be a great mother.
He said: "She and Jacob are so excited and I couldn't be happier for Zooey. She's a good friend and this is an awesome thing in her life. I think she's going to be a great mom."
