Zooey Deschanel Admits She's Having Trouble with Her Pregnancy Diet


Zooey Deschanel is not into the dietary restrictions that come with being pregnant!

The 35-year-old New Girl star stopped by The Jimmy Kimmel Show on Thursday, where she dished on what she is -- and isn't -- eating now that she's pregnant with her first child with her fiance Jacob Pechenik. Zooey says she's not vegan like her sister, Bones actress Emily Deschasnel, who's also currently pregnant.

"You know, sometimes you're hungry, and you want food that's not vegan," she laughs.

And it turns out there's already plenty of other things she must now deprive herself of.

"You can't eat so many things when you're pregnant!" she said. "If I was vegan, I'd just be like...ohhh."

"You can't have sushi. You can't have cheese that tastes good," she added. "You can have a little bit [of coffee], but I would have, like, four cups a day. And now I can have a half cup, which is a joke! It's a total joke! You can't have alcohol. I miss that, I like wine."

But all jokes aside, Zooey is clearly taking care of herself, glowing in a sleeveless red dress that showed off her baby bump. The She & Him singer also dished that she and her producer fiance are choosing to be surprised when it comes to the sex of the baby.

"It's more fun, you know? Make it into a game," she jokes.
