Zooey Deschanel has given birth to her second child with her husband Jacob Pechenik. This means Elsie Otter is now a big sister to her young brother, who they named Charlie Wolf Pechenik, according to People.
I can’t say I’m entirely surprised they chose Wolf as his middle name, considering his older sister’s is Otter. Honestly, it’s pretty adorable. Are they going to form a band called Wolf & Otter when they got older?
Zooey previously explained why she and her husband chose an unusual middle name for Elsie:
“In a sense that we’re all mammals. We thought Elsie is a classic name—a lot of people have grandmas and aunts named Elsie. And then we were like, the middle name can be a little bit like wild.
We both found that we had a mutual love for otters. There were some more normal middle names… but I realized that nobody else likely had the middle name ‘Otter.’”
Here’s some cute photos on her Instagram of her furry friends:
