How's Zooey Deschanel's Pregnancy Going? Great, Except That She Can't Enjoy Anything Good In Life

Pregnancy is supposed to be a time of glowing, joyful memories, and planning for the miracle you will soon be welcoming into the world. Well, for Zooey Deschanel's pregnancy with her first child, she's so not down with all of the diet restrictions. While chatting with Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday, the New Girl actress opened up about how excited she is to meet her baby boy or girl. Oh, yeah, Deschanel also can't wait until she can eat and drink whatever she wants! She told Kimmel, "You can't eat so many things when you're pregnant!"

She added,

You can't have sushi. You can't have cheese that tastes good. 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!

I think most of us know pregnancy prohibits a large caffeine intake, but talk about stressful times. I'd miss my caffeine too! Also, Deschanel says she's missing alcohol, especially wine. I'm not a wine lover, but I'd be having major cravings for beer. She's also glad she's not vegan, or she'd really be limited. Funnily enough, her sister, Emily Deschanel, is vegan and pregnant, too. So, I guess the two could share tips on how to satisfy certain cravings, even though their diets are extremely different.

As for whether Deschanel and fiancé Jacob Pechenik are having a boy or girl, the two are waiting to find out the gender. "We are gonna be surprised," the actress told Kimmel. "It's more fun. Make it into a game!"
