‘Gotham’ stars Morena Baccarin, Ben McKenzie expecting first child

Anyway, let’s put the drama aside for a moment and offer our congrats to Morena and Ben!


They are in love onscreen as well as off. And now the Brazilian-born actress, Monica Baccarin, is reportedly pregnant with the child of her “Gotham” costar, Ben McKenzie.

Meanwhile, McKenzie’s sister Camille Schenkkan is welcoming Baccarin into their family with open arms, tweeting on Thursday, “Welcome to the family, Morena!”

According to the court docs, she’s now at the end of her first trimester.

In the documents, Baccarin is requesting to have full custody of her 1-year-old son in New York because she is pregnant and can not fly.

Previously admitting he likes to play his cards close to his chest when it comes to women, Ben told America’s Elle magazine: “I’m really shy about that stuff”.


Gotham” airs on Fox every Monday at 8 p.m. EDT. Baccarin and Chick were married for three years before Chick filed for divorce in June. “I’ve never had a problem being monogamous in a serious relationship”. It creates weird dynamics. The characters became involved romantically during the show’s first season, and in the current episodes, they live together. “People are genuinely surprised when you ask them out”.
