The little girl, who has not yet made any public appearances with photos on social media, is named Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan. (The surnames are Baccarin's.) Both mom and baby are doing well.

Neither Baccarin, 36, or McKenzie, 37, have publicly mentioned the arrival of their daughter on social media. The couple was first seen out together at the 2015 Emmy Awards, and confirmed they were expecting a baby together just a few days later.

Little Frances joins 2-year-old Julian, Bacarrin's son from her marriage to screenwriter Austin Chick. This is the first child for Ben McKenzie.

Baccarin had recently asked a judge in early February to postpone her divorce deposition with estranged husband Austin Chick due to having a high-risk pregnancy and needing to be on bedrest. Chick filed for divorce last summer after just more than three years of marriage. The couple had originally agreed to co-parent Julius while both living in New York, but when Chick found out Baccarin was pregnant and seeing co-star McKenzie, he split for the West Coast and thus began a contentious custody battle. A judge ordered Baccarin in November 2015 to pay Chick nearly $23,000 a month in child and spousal support.

Here's to hoping her divorce drama gets resolved quickly so she can enjoy the glow of new motherhood!
