Tess Sanchez and Max Greenfield are also parents to daughter Lily Speaking previously about his little girl, Max said: "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,'" the star added during an appearance on family.Protagonist Zooey Deschanel, who plays Jess on the show, recently became a first time mum after giving birth to a baby girl in July.One of the main critiques of the show has been that Zooey’s character Jess behaves like an insane person, beyond how a normal person could conceivably act. He unfixes the basketball hoop and I flip out on him, "How you gonna unfix a dead Schmidt? I always feel like people in general are much weirder and insane than anybody really wants to admit. Schmidt is one of the roommates in 4D, considers himself 'top dog' and runs the loft.He has OCD, therefore prefers to do all of the decorating, cooking, and cleaning to his standards.Zooey was phenomenal in the pilot, and you really fell for her at the end and it left you with, “O.K., she’s going to live with these guys; I want to see them attempt to pick her up.” Then you look three or four episodes down the road, and it becomes annoying if she’s just running around going, “My boyfriend cheated on me blah blah,” then she’s just a victim and she’s whining the whole time, so it has to become an ensemble, and about all these people helping each other and working with each other.
They are also parents to a daughter Lily, who is five and a half years old.

He convinces Nick to call his ex, who gets them on the list.
