Reps for both Morena Baccarin (Deadpool) and Ben McKenzie (The O.C.) have confirmed to US Magazine that the actress is pregnant with her Gotham co-star's baby.
Baccarin, 36, and McKenzie, 37, play onscreen couple Dr. Leslie "Lee" Thompkin (Morena Baccarin) and Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), respectively, on Fox's comic book-based television series, Gotham.
This summer, Baccarin filed for divorce from Austin Chick, who she married back in 2011 and had her first child with in October of 2013. According to TMZ, Baccarin filed for joint custody of their 23-month-old son Julius and wants Chick "to move from L.A. to New York where she films the show" because in the near future her pregnancy will prevent her from boarding a plane "to pick up and deliver their son."
This will be Baccarin's second child and McKenzie's first. Congratulations?!
“Rise of the Villains: Knock, Knock” episode of Gotham airing Monday, Sept. 28 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
