Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin have kept mum about the details of their relationship despite several revelations from several legal documents that surfaced recently. Among them were cheating accusations from her estranged husband, Austin Chick.
In the print edition of Us Weekly though, it was revealed that the new couple was not letting Baccarin’s divorce drama get in the way of them enjoying the coming of their first child.
As cited by Celebitchy , a source said the new couple were “happy.” They were also reportedly not letting Austin Chick’s accusations affect their happiness with the source insisting that Morena Baccarin and her ex-husband were already separated when she got together with Ben McKenzie. The insider also spilled some details on how the “Gotham” onscreen lovers eventually brought the romance into real life.
“They spoke on the phone as friends,” the insider revealed. “Ben was her moral support and helped her get through a difficult time.”
“I don’t know that it was planned, but it was very happy news,” the insider also said about the pregnancy. “They were overjoyed.”
Nevertheless, the new couple who reportedly intends to marry someday as reported by Entertainment Tonight , continue to be on the lie low with their relationship on the set of “Gotham.”
Baccarin was reportedly on the first quarter of her pregnancy. In a new report on Mail Online , the actress was seen strolling around California recently. She wore a lose dress but her baby bump was seen as she was pictured watching over her toddler with ex-husband, Austin Chick.
Last month, Baccarin was also pictured on the set of “Gotham” with her growing baby bump. It was not clear if the baby bump will be part of her storyline on the TV series.
Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin first made the headlines of entertainment channels last month when they graced the red carpet of the 2015 Emmys together. As told by Hollywood Life then, they were reportedly dating. But days later, it was revealed she was pregnant with their first child.
