Morena Baccarin Shows Off Her Baby Bump While Filming 'Gotham' With Boyfriend Ben McKenzie
By Antoinette Bueno
Morena Baccarin is definitely carrying a bun in the oven!
The 36-year-old actress was snapped filming with her real-life boyfriend and love interest on Gotham, 37-year-old Ben McKenzie, in Brooklyn, New York last Friday, where there was no hiding her baby bump. News broke on Thursday -- less than a week later -- that Baccarin's expecting her first baby with McKenzie.
The former Homeland star covered up in a long white coat, though her burgeoning bump was still pretty noticeable.
On Thursday, Baccarin also faced her ex-husband, producer/director Austin Chick, to settle the matter of custody of their 1-year-old son, Julius. She filed for full legal custody of their son since Chick is based in Los Angeles and she lives in New York, revealing that she would no longer be able to fly back and forth due to her pregnancy.
Ultimately, the judge ordered joint legal custody with the child temporarily based in New York with Baccarin until she finds out whether Gotham will be renewed for a third season by Fox. In the meantime, the actress will also pay for travel and a New York apartment for Chick during his visits.
Baccarin's "in a new relationship and is moving on with her life," her attorney stated.
Baccarin and her ex-husband were married in 2011, and Chick filed for divorce on June 12, 2015, citing irreconcilable differences.
