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!
