New parents Zooey Deschanel and husband Jacob Pechenik were spotted out on Thursday with their newborn Elsie Otter for a long hike in Los Angeles.
During an appearance on The Today Show a couple weeks ago Zooey explained the meaning behind her daughter’s name.
‘We just really loved the name Elsie and we both love otters. They are very sweet and they are also smart,’ she added. ‘They use tools, they keep their favourite tools. They hold hands while they sleep. There are so many amazing things about otters. Who doesn’t love otters.’
Joking, ‘I love otters, she better love otters. We don’t know yet because she’s only a few months old. But she’s going to.’
