Zooey Deschanel's daughter to run for president

Zooey Deschanel has joked her daughter is going to run for president.

The 'New Girl' actress, who welcomed a baby girl with husband Jacob Pechenik recently, says the tot could give the likes of Donald Trump and Kanye West - both of whom have thrown their hats into the race - a run for their money.

She tweeted: "My infant daughter is going to run for president. She remains silent all of the key issues but she's much cuter than Donald Trump."

Zooey, 35, and her husband secretly wed over the summer and welcomed their first addition, and 'New Girl' co-star Lamorne Morris says the baby is "extremely cute".

The 32-year-old actor said: "She's an extremely cute baby. She looks like Zooey.

"Two good-looking parents will make a good-looking kid. Unless there's that one where you're like, 'Oh, you're going to make a terrible child.' But that was not gonna happen with these two."

Lamorne also thinks Zooey, who has yet to reveal her little girl's name, will be a great mother because she has always looked out for everyone on the set of their TV series.

He told PEOPLE.com: "She's a great mom to us on set. She puts the hammer down on the craziness we do from time to time."
