New Girl’s Max Greenfield Is Expecting Baby No. 2!
There’s something in the water over at the set of FOX’s New Girl! Just months after news broke that Zooey Deschanel (Jess) is pregnant with her first child, Max Greenfield (Schmidt) and his wife, casting director Tess Sanchez, are expecting their second baby together!
The couple’s happy news was confirmed by E! News, and baby No. 2 will join Max and Tess’s first child, 5-year-old daughter Lilly. While the Greenfield’s have been pretty private about their life — Max and Tess tied the knot back in 2008 — the 34-year-old actor has gushed about his daughter to ABC News in 2014, and it had us feeling all the feels.
“She's the best, man. She keeps a lot of it grounded,” the doting father said. “You come home, you're like 'Whatever, let's go hang out!’”
As for how Lilly feels about her dad’s Hollywood stardom, Max reveals that she’s actually “unfazed” by it all. “I don't know that she fully gets it," he explained. “She knows that I'm on a TV show, she'll be like, ‘Daddy you play Schmidt.’”
“There's a big part of me that's very proud of it and goes, 'Daddy's really happy,' but another part, that's like, 'Just stay away from that as long as you can,’” he continued. “But she seems unfazed by it.”
No word yet on whether the couple will be expecting a boy or girl this time around, much less a due date, but we’re thrilled for Max, Tess, and Lilly. Congratulations!
