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.

When his wife Nicole “Coco” Austin came running down the stairs crying one day, Ice-T immediately froze. The rapper turned actor assumed there had been a tragedy in the family.

“I took the test and when I found out, I ran downstairs. He was on the computer and I was bawling, screaming. He thought someone died,” she tells PEOPLE.

But it turns out they were happy — and nervous — tears: Austin was pregnant! “He was just as surprised as me,” she admits of finding out they were expecting their first child together.

“I was so thrown off that our pregnancy happened really fast,” Austin, 36, shares. “It happened out of the blue, and I was like, ‘Wow, wait a second!’ I was told it was going to take a lot longer than it [did] so it threw me off.”
