Zooey Deschanel is reportedly expecting again.

Us Weekly reports that the New Girl star is pregnant with her second child with her husband, producer Jacob Pechenik. The Hollywood Reporter has reached out for comment.

Deschanel, 37, and Pechenik welcomed their baby girl, Elsie Otter, in August 2015. The couple, who're known to stay private about their personal lives, secretly got married in June 2015 in Texas.

According to Deschanel, the couple decided to name their first born after a sea otter because, "We just really liked the name Elsie and 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." Perhaps another marine mammal will serve as inspiration for their next kid's name. Seal? Whoops, that's taken.

In addition to New Girl, Deschanel most recently lent her voice to DreamWorks animated musical comedy Trolls.
