There’s a new girl in town.

Zooey Deschanel is a new mom — and a new wife! — after welcoming a daughter with husband Jacob Pechenik, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The baby girl was reportedly born in Austin, Texas, in late July, according to the New York Post‘s Page Six.

The New Girl star, 35, confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE in January that she and producer Pechenik were engaged and expecting a baby together.

“Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one,” the mom-to-be said.

Although the actress struggled with a few parts of her pregnancy — “You can’t have sushi, you can’t have cheese that tastes good,” she told Jimmy Kimmel — the couple had fun keeping their baby’s sex a guessing game.

Thompson Square is going from a duo to a trio!

After 16 years of marriage, husband and wife bandmates Keifer and Shawna Thompson are going to be parents, they announced via social media Tuesday.

“We’re really, really excited,” Keifer tells PEOPLE exclusively. “We’ve been together for a long time and we’ve done a lot of things and we just really felt there was something missing. We love what we do, we love the music business, but we didn’t want to deprive ourselves of having a family.”

And the pair, who are expecting their baby in January, are already thinking about all the logistics involved with raising a baby on the road.

“We’re going to have to design a whole new bus!” says Keifer, 39. “We’re going to need to turn one of the bunks into a crib and we’ll need a changing area,” says Shawna, 37. “It’s going to be interesting.”
