Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin Are Definitely, Maybe Getting Married
By Hollywood standards, this could be the most efficient relationship ever.
One week after news broke that Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin are more than friends and Gotham co-stars, and days after it was revealed that she’s having his baby, word on the street in court is that the couple will soon be husband and wife.
The 36-year-old actress is currently in divorce proceedings with her ex, film producer Austin Chick. According to legal papers obtained by TMZ, Baccarin states that, “Today, I am in a new committed relationship. I am planning to re-marry. Also, I am 3 1/2 months pregnant.”
Baccarin is also requesting for full custody of her and Chick’s 1-year-old son. In response, Chick claims that Baccarin got pregnant in June before they decided to separate. Nasty texts were also exchanged:
[S]he texted to Chick, “I’d like to be there alone with Julius [their son]. Please Friday all day and night through Sunday morning.”
He responded, “I’d like to run Fox Studios and remake The Sound of Music w an entirely black cast of hip hop artist.”
She tells the judge, “This entire situation is not funny to me.” [via TMZ]
Baccarin was recently promoted to series regular on Gotham, which kicked off its sophomore season last week.
