“My infant daughter is going to run for president,” Deschanel, 35, wrote. She mused: “She remains silent [on] all of the key issues but she’s much cuter than Donald Trump.” (The former Celebrity Apprentice host is currently the GOP presidential front-runner.)

Deschanel and Pechenik secretly tied the knot in Texas on June 21. Back in March, she joked about pregnancy cravings during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

'You can't eat so many things when you're pregnant! If I was vegan, I'd just be like…ohhh. You can't have sushi. You can't have cheese that tastes good,” she said at the time. “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!”

She added: “You can't have alcohol. I miss that, I like wine.”
