The New Girl actress spoke with People at the Rock the Kasbah premiere in New York City and said, “It’s Elsie…” while her husband, Jacob Pechenik, finished, “Otter.” The brown-haired beauty continued, “Like the animal,” and her husband added, “Sea otter!”
The 35-year-old talked more about her newborn daughter on the Today Show and revealed, “We just really like the name Elsie and than we both love otters — they’re very sweet and they’re also smart. They use tools… they hold hands while they sleep; there’s so many amazing things about otters. They’re wonderful animals.”
Zooey and Jacob welcomed their little bundle of joy in late July and announced both their baby girl’s birth and marriage in August.
