Ben McKenzie & Pregnant Morena Baccarin Make Red Carpet Debut as a Couple

By Johnny Lopez


They are pregnant and have plans to marry once her divorce is finalized, but Morena Baccarin and Ben McKenzie finally made their red carpet debut as an official couple on Wednesday.

The Gotham stars made their arrival amongst a flashbulb frenzy at the Sierra Club's "Act in Paris, A Night Of Comedy and Climate Action" event in NYC.

Morena, 36, proudly showed off her growing belly in a knee-length black and white dress as she held on close to her 37-year-old baby daddy.

This will be the couple's first child and the second for Baccarin, who is in the midst of a divorce and custody battle with estranged husband Austin Chick over their two-year-old son.

During her divorce proceedings in September, it came to light that the actress was in a relationship with the former The OC actor, planning to marry him and carrying his child.

Morena and her ex are fighting over co-parenting their son in NY over California, as Gotham is filmed in Manhattan and he lives in Los Angeles.

She and McKenzie currently co-star as Dr. Leslie Thompkins and Detective James Gordon on the Batman origin Fox series.

And it looks like it may take a superhero to settle all their family drama.
