By Sean O’Connell Do you know what really gets “Your Highness” co-star Zooey Deschanel high? Apparently it’s the news that she’s about to become an aunt.

“My big sister, Emily (aka bones) Deschanel and her husby, David Hornsby, are going to have a baby! I am super excited to be an aunt!” Deschanel Tweeted Thursday night.
