Emily Deschanel has a new baby boy. It’s the second son for Emily and husband David Hornsby. Their first child Henrywas born in 2011. The Bones actress, who is 38, and her baby are healthy and happy, reported Us Weekly.
“The whole family and baby are doing well,” shared her spokesperson.
Keeping it all in the family, Emily was pregnant at the same time as actress Zooey Deschanel, who is her younger sister.
For Deschanel, nurturing a baby bump means being careful about her nutrition. That’s because she’s a vegan.
“I work with a nutritionist to make sure I have the protein that I need,” revealed Emily about caring for her baby-to-be.
And while many expectant moms confess to cravings such as ice cream and pickles, Deschanel just wanted one item; Lemonade.
“It’s so weird,” admitted Emily. “I just get thirsty. You have to drink more water and I can only drink so much water. I used to drink a ton of [fluids] and now I’ve hit my limit so I think of a variety. Once I get thirsty, I’ll want lemonade or a sparkling water. Maybe it is citrus fruits!”
During her pregnancy, Deschanel kept the baby gender a secret.
“I know that it’ll happen in the next couple of episodes we’re filming, but that’s it,” said Emily. “I don’t know if it’ll be a boy or a girl.”
And now that her second son has arrived, Deschanel also knows that she’ll raise him in a vegan household, just as with Henry, reported People.
“We’re going to have some vegan tacos for his [birthday] party. It will be a lot of fun,” revealed Emily recently.
A vegan for 21 years, the doting mother estimates that Henry is 99 percent vegan. She revealed that her husband is a vegetarian because he eats eggs.
“He’s 99 percent vegan. My husband’s not 100 percent vegan so sometimes he eats some eggs with him, but I try to make sure [they’re] coming from my friend’s eggs,” she shared. “But most of the time he’s 99 percent vegan.”
In addition, Deschanel seeks to help Henry develop an appreciation for animals as living creatures.
“I just took him to Farm Sanctuary a couple of weeks ago, where he got to spend time with pigs, cows, sheep, goats and chickens. [I want him to] see that they have their own personalities and they are individual creatures. They feel emotions and pain just like a dog or a cat.”
As the Inquisitr reported, a wide range of celebrities are vegans and vegetarians. Among the most well-known plant-based dieters are Carrie Underwood, Ellen DeGeneres, Alicia Silverstone, and Natalie Portman.
