Zooey Deschanel Reminds Us That She s Pregnant By Talking About Her Pregnancy Zooey Deschanel Jimmy Kimmel Live March 2015 jpg

I don’t know about you, but I totally forgot that Zooey Deschanel is pregnant. So when I saw that she was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night talking about being pregnant, for a split second I was like, “Hmm, that’s kind of a weird thing for a non-pregnant celebrity to talk about.” And then I remembered. It’s just that there seem to be so many famous ladies getting knocked up and giving birth and withholding their babies’ names these days that I can’t keep track of who’s on what list and who isn’t on any of the lists at all. But Zooey was nice enough to remind me by bringing her adorable baby bump (and matching hair bump!) onto Jimmy’s show.

Zooey says she and her fiance Jacob Pechenik are waiting until the baby is born to find out if it’s a boy or a girl, which is like such a spontaneous Zooey thing to do, am I right? I mean, she doesn’t even know what color to buy the adorkable baby beanies or non-prescription baby glasses in. She’s just flying by the fringe of her bangs. (That’s a new phrase I invented that you can use whenever you’re talking about a lady with bangs. Go forth and use it.)

Jimmy also brings up quite an interesting topic with Zooey. While she is no longer a vegan herself, her sister Emily Deschanel is. And did you know that Emily is also pregnant right now? I KNOW! So obviously Jimmy had to ask Zooey whether it’s okay to breastfeed a baby if you want the baby to be a vegan too. Because, technically, it’s an animal product. It’s definitely an interesting conversation, and exactly the kind I want to hear when celebrities talk about pregnancy. So thanks, Jimmy Kimmel. And thanks Zooey Deschanel for refreshing my memory about the bun in your oven.
