Turns out Gotham‘s Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin aren’t just having a baby together; they’re also planning a wedding.
Just as soon as Baccarin can finalize her divorce from her previous spouse Austin Chick, that is.
Chick and Baccarin have been locked in a custody battle over their son, Julius. A judge recently ruled that Julius will spend the majority of his time in New York with his mother since Baccarin soon won’t be able to fly due to her second pregnancy.
And Baccarin revealed in court documents obtained by People that she is more than ready to move on from all of the drama with her ex.
“Today, I am in a committed relationship,” she revealed, adding, “I am planning to remarry. I am also 3 1/2 months pregnant.”
The news that the couple was in a relationship took everyone by storm over the Emmys weekend when the two were seen getting cozy with each other. That, paired with the news that they are expecting a child together, has been enough to make headlines, since the couple kept their relationship under wraps so expertly.
Neither star has spoken out publicly about the relationship as of now. But McKenzie did retweet a message from his sister, which congratulated the two on the happy news becoming public.

Though little is known about how McKenzie and Baccarin’s relationship began, it is presumed that sparks flew on the set of their hit show Gotham. Baccarin’s character Dr. Leslie Thompkins was introduced at the end of the first season.
A source shared with People, “She and Ben are very happy about this news. Everyone is very excited.”
