What Quirky Animal Did Zooey Deschanel Name Her Baby After?
Yes. So much yes.
“It’s Elsie,” said Deschanel of her manic pixie dream baby while her husband added that Elsie’s middle name is Otter.
Explained the actress, “Like the animal.” Added Pechenik helpfully, “Sea otter!”
“We just really liked the name Elsie and then we both love otters — they’re very sweet and they’re also smart,” added Deschanel. “They use tools … they hold hands while they sleep, there’s so many amazing things about otters. They’re wonderful animals.”
“In fact, from this point forward I would like to be known as Zoo-ey Deschanel,” she did not add.
We’d apologize, but we’re not sorry. Also? We totally agree — otters kick ass!
