There’s a new baby on set! ‘Gotham’ stars Morena Baccarin and Ben McKenzie have welcomed their first child together. How exciting! Find out the name below.
Gotham co-stars Morena Baccarin, 36, and Ben McKenzie, 37, are officially new parents to a precious baby. This is the actor’s first child and Morena’s second — she already has a son, Julius Setta Chick, 2, with her ex Austin Chick, 44. So, what did they name their new daughter?
“Morena and Ben are so happy to welcome baby girl Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan,” their reps confirm to USA Today. “All are happy and healthy and appreciate the well-wishes.”
Prior to the birth, the former O.C. star stopped by TODAY this morning to promote his show’s series’ mid-season premiere, and told the hosts that he is downright terrified to be a daddy, since he’s still taping new episodes.
“It’s a little terrifying but it’s very exciting. Every day I leave the house and I go to work and I say (to Morena), ‘No baby today! No baby today! Wait for the weekend!’ That’s the plan, then that way I can be there for 24 to 48 hours. We’re still shooting (the show).” Well, hopefully he has mustered up the confidence for parenthood by now!
The pair began dating only a year ago, but didn’t go public with the romance until Morena confirmed the relationship in court papers. She had been going through a divorce and custody battle with her estranged husband, director and screenwriter Austin.
