According to People Magazine, Zooey Deschanel has given birth to her second child with husband Jacob Pechenik.

The child's name is Charlie Wolf and both he and his famous mother are doing fantastic.

“Zooey, Jacob and their daughter Elsie are overjoyed to welcome the newest member of their family,” a rep for the comedic actress tells the aforementioned publication.

To their credit, Deschanel and Pechenik maintain strict privacy rules when it comes to their children.

Little Charlie reportedly came into the world last week, but the exact date is unknown. We can't speak on any of his measurements, either.

What can say for certain, however, is that Deschanel and Pechenik welcomed their first child in July of 2015, not long after getting married in Texas.

We then learned Deschanel was pregnant again in January.

“I’ve slowed things down a bit. I think it’s good for your whole self - your creative self, your professional self, and just your soul - to take a little time for yourself and your family,” Deschanel told Redbook for its May 2016 cover story when the topic of her family was broached.

She added at the time:

“I’ve never really felt like an adult. But I think it’s a huge accomplishment to have a child so maybe I feel like an adult for that reason!”

Hey, it certainly is. One could easily say it's the biggest accomplishment anyone can ever... accomplish.

The funny star also appeared on Ellen in October and referenced her daughter's current focus on fashion.

“She’s really obsessed with hats right now,” the actress said last fall. “My mom wears hats a lot and we had dinner with her and as soon as my mom came up, Elsie said ‘Hat! Hat!'

“I think she’s just really proud of herself that she recognizes that. If she walks in my closet, the hats are up on the top shelf, [and she points and says] ‘Haaat!’ [She’s] very excited.”

During her first pregnancy, meanwhile, Deschanel also said that she struggled with having to give up some of her most beloved food items.

“You can’t have sushi. You can’t have cheese that tastes good,” she told Jimmy Kimmel in 2015, adding:

“You can have a little bit [of coffee], but I would have, like, four cups a day. And now I can have a half cup, which is a joke! It’s a total joke!"

Still, it's worthwhile in the end, we're sure Deschanel would agree.

We send our best wishes to the actress, her newborn and to all the other stars below who became parents over the past few months!
