AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Zooey Deschanel and husband Jacob Pechenik welcomed their first child together last week, a girl, the actress' rep said.

The New Girl star gave birth in late July in Austin, Texas, where Pechenik works as a movie producer, Page Six reported.

"I am thrilled to confirm that Zooey Deschanel and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, are new parents to a beautiful healthy baby girl," the rep said in a statement to Us Weekly.

Deschanel, 35, and Pechenik, 42, began dating last year after meeting on a movie project. The two announced their pregnancy in January and they secretly wed June 21 in Texas.

The couple had kept the baby's gender a secret throughout Deschanel's pregnancy.

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have filed for divorce after 13 years of marriage.

The No Doubt singer cited irreconcilable differences in her petition, TMZ reported. Bush frontman Rossdale also filed divorce papers at the same time.

"While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment," the couple said in a statement provided to E! News. "To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time."

Both Rossdale and Stefani are asking for joint custody of their three sons -- 9-year-old Kingston, 6-year-old Zuma and 1-year-old Apollo.

Sources told TMZ the couple do not have a pre-nuptial agreement, so according to California law, they'll likely split all assets 50/50. Stefani is reportedly worth $58 million, while Rossdale's estimated worth is $35 million.

In her divorce filing, Stefani sought to deny her husband spousal support.
