First comes a baby, then comes marriage… or something like that! Yes, Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin are already planning on becoming man and wife now that they are expecting.
Morena Baccarin, 36, is ready to re-marry Ben McKenzie, 37, as soon as her divorce goes through. The Gotham co-stars have reportedly been talking about marriage, and Morena herself confirmed the news in her divorce papers from current husband Austin Chick, 44.
So, will they get married before… or after their baby is born? Now that the cat’s out of the bag about their newfound relationship, Morena and Ben have some big news they are holding onto: they’re also getting married! Well, at least that’s what Morena says in her divorce papers, reports TMZ.
“Today, I am in a new committed relationship. I am planning to re-marry,” Morena’s papers read, revealing how serious her and Ben’s romance really is. “Also, I am 3 1/2 months pregnant.” The papers also state that Morena got pregnant with Ben’s baby back in June 2015, which, according to her, was after her and her first husband separated. However, he disagrees!
Unfortunately, while Austin’s claims about Morena getting pregnant while they were still together also include his awkward encounter with Ben. Austin claims he came to the house in June 2015 and found Ben playing with his and Morena’s 1 year old son. Yikes!
