Ben McKenzie Is Going to Be a Dad

Oh, baby.

Days after making headlines thanks to his love life, Ben McKenzie is in the news again, this time thanks to his love life and soon-to-be dad life.

McKenzie’s Gotham co-star and girlfriend Morena Baccarin is pregnant with the couple’s first child. The news was revealed in court documents filed in New York on Thursday (Sept. 24), according to TMZ.

In the documents, Baccarin is requesting to have full custody of her 1-year-old son in New York because she is pregnant and cannot fly. The child is from the 36-year-old actress’ previous marriage to film producer and director Austin Chick, who currently lives in Los Angeles. Chick filed for divorce earlier this year, citing Hollywood’s usual irreconcilable differences.

TMZ reports that Baccarin, who will appear as a series regular on the second season of Gotham, is at the end of her first trimester.
