The 35-year-old New Girl star and hubby Jacob Pechenik have finally spilled what their 3-month-old baby daughter's name is. "it's Elsie… Otter. Like the animal," the actress told People at the Rock the Kasbah premiere in NYC yesterday. Her husband added, "Sea otter".

The couple, who tied the knot in August, have been seen in various spots around Austin, Texas with baby in tow since Elsie's birth in late July. They're keeping the baby photos under wraps, but New Girl co-star Lamorne Morris told People that she's quite adorable. "She's an extremely cute baby," Lamorne said in August. "She looks like Zooey."
