We're only a month into 2015, but it's already been a big year for our favorite New Girl star. Zooey Deschanel is pregnant with her first child, and she also announced her engagement to boyfriend Jacob Pechenik last week. Both of these are huge life events, and both of them come as a total shock. A happy shock, though, because Deschanel is obviously going to make an incredible mother — just ask her New Girl costar Max Greenfield, who says Deschanel will make a "fantastic" mom. And he's not the only one who seems to think so. Jake Johnson, who plays Deschanel's roommate and former love interest Nick Miller on the show, has already mentioned how "awesome" Deschanel's news is.
This isn't exactly surprising, since the cast is obviously very close and supportive of each other. But as soon as I heard Deschanel was expecting, I couldn't help wondering how Schmidt — not Max Greenfield, Schmidt — would take the news. Although Greenfield had nothing to offer on that front, he did note that the entire cast and crew found out about Deschanel's pregnancy at the same time. He didn't disclose how they found out, but I have a feeling Deschanel might've cooked up something adorable (and completely Pinterest-worthy) to break the news.
"It was exciting!" Greenfield told Us Weekly. "[The cast] all found out at the same time on set, and it was just like, 'Oh my god!'"
This basically mirrors my reaction when I found out Deschanel was pregnant, and I don't even know her. Yes, I will admit that I am inappropriately psyched for the pregnancy of a woman who I have never met before, but how could I not be when she's about to give birth to the best celebrity baby ever? Can you imagine the wardrobe this child will have? Fingers crossed Deschanel starts being active on Instagram again once the baby is born. I'm going to need plenty of pictures!
