Brazilian-American actress and mom Morena Baccarin looked glowing and gorgeous, as usual, when she and partner Ben McKenzie recently stepped in front of cameras for the first time since announcing they're expecting a baby together. The couple attended an event in New York City recently for the Sierra Club, where Baccarin wore a form-fitting printed dress that showed off her new belly.
Baccarin and McKenzie attended the 2015 Emmy Awards together in September and were seen holding hands at the awards show after-party—causing rumors to swirl that the pair, whose "Gotham" on-screen characters became romantically involved at the end of the show's first season last spring, were dating in real life. Shortly after, the actors confirmed not only that they were indeed dating, but that they were also expecting a baby together! McKenzie's sister tweeted her congratulations to the couple and excitement about being an aunt just a few days after the Emmy Awards.
On Nov. 30, the couple attended the 25th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards and Baccarin, 36, wore a gorgeous white sheath dress that showed off her growing baby bump. This will be the first child for excited dad Ben McKenzie, 37.
A judge ordered Baccarin in November to pay $23,000 in monthly spousal and child support to soon-to-be ex-husband Austin Chick, with whom she shares son Julius, who turned 2 Oct. 22. Chick filed for divorce in July, citing irreconcilable differences. About $2,700 of the monthly maintenance will be child support, and about $21,000 for spousal support — adding up to more than $275,000 per year. The ex-couple will share joint custody of their son. No word yet on whether Julius is going to have a baby brother or sister, yet, but we bet he'll be excited to be a big brother when he finds out!
