Gotham star Ben McKenzie, 37, and his co-star Morena Baccarin, 36, went public with their relationship just recently at the Emmy’s afterparty on Sunday, Sept. 21 and just after revealing that their together, it turns out they have even bigger news.

According to reports from TMZ, the new couple are also expecting! While they haven’t publicly revealed the news, the information has been discovered because of Baccarin’s divorce case.

It seems while attending court on Thursday, Sept. 24, the former Homeland star filed documents asking the judge to award her full custody of her one-year-old son, Julius, with her estranged husband Austin Chick because she lives in New York and he lives in L.A. and her new pregnancy restricts her from flying.

Baccarin is reportedly at the end of her first trimester, meaning she can fly right now, but not for much longer, and she doesn’t want that to stop her from seeing her young son.

McKenzie and Baccarin seemingly met while filming Fox’s hit show Gotham in which he plays a young James Gordon and she portrays Dr. Leslie Thompkins, and although the relationship is apparently still new, word is they are both very excited about the baby.
