Zooey Deschanel Named Her Daughter Elsie Otter Because She Just Really Loves Otters
They're great animals, honestly.
Zooey Deschanel was recently on The Ellen Show and updated the host on life as a new mom.
Zooey gave birth to her first child, Elsie Otter, back in August, and Ellen got the deets on the ~interesting~ name.
Zooey said that for the first name they went with something classic.
But decided to have some fun with the middle name.
Zooey is a well-known animal lover, and she and her husband both love otters. So, why not?
Otters are pretty great animals, tbh.
Zooey hasn't shown off any pics of Elsie Otter yet, so Ellen mocked up a couple for the audience.
