Congratulations are in order for Morena Baccarin and Ben McKenzie! The two Gotham co-stars are expecting a baby!
During divorce and custody proceedings with Morena Baccarin’s ex Austin Chick, the actress revealed that she is expecting a child. Baccarin began dating her co-star Ben McKenzie after separating from her husband and things have quickly become quite serious!
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ Baccarin stated, “Today, I am in a new committed relationship. I am planning to re-marry. Also, I am three and a half months pregnant.”
The couple haven’t released any statements on their new addition, but McKenzie did retweet a sweet message from his sister about the news:

With the way these two steam things up together on Gotham we’re not really surprised by the news! On screen, their characters have also become quite serious. In the Gotham season 2 premiere we saw that Jim Gordon (played by McKenzie) and Leslie (played by Baccarin) seem to have moved in together. Which is good news with Barbara Kean now criminally insane and loose in the city.
Hopefully the couple can clear up all of the legal drama in real life and enjoy the future to come!
