Pregnant Morena Baccarin Will Wed Ben McKenzie Once She's Divorced

By Johnny Lopez


The only thing keeping Morena Baccarin from marrying Ben McKenzie - the father of her unborn child - is her contentious divorce from her estranged husband. It's the little things!

In court papers obtained by People, Morena has revealed plans to tie the knot with her Gotham co-star once she and director Austin Chick settle their custody battle over their 23-month-old son, Julius.

"Today, I am in a new committed relationship," the actress said in the legal documents. "I am planning to re-marry. Also, I am 3 ½ months pregnant." #baBOOM

Last week Morena & Ben confirmed they were expecting a child just days after going pubic with their romance on the Emmy red carpet.

While the duo have yet to reveal a wedding date, it may now be more imminent as a judge recently issued a ruling allowing Baccarin's son to live primarily with her in New York. Chick had wanted to keep the child in Los Angeles with him.

Once her divorce is finalized, the expectant parents will be free to walk down the aisle.

Prior to their love going bad, the former Homeland star married the XX/XY director in 2011 and later welcomed their son in October 2013.

After four years together, Chick filed for divorce in July 2015 and cited "irreconcilable differences" as the cause.

Although their Gotham characters hooked up at the end of last season, it is unclear when exactly Morena and Ben started their off-screen relationship.

Things that make you go hmmmmm.
