Surprise Gothamstars Ben Mckenzie
Considering how much time Dr. Leslie Thompkins spends in Detective Jim Gordon's apartment in the first season ' Gotham ,' it was only a matter of time before the two of them ended up with a kid together. But we expected it to happen on the show , not in real life. Guess we were wrong!
'Gotham' stars Morena Baccarin and Ben McKenzie are expecting a child together, their reps have confirmed to US Weekly today (September 24). While the two had not officially announced their status as a couple yet, they attended this past weekend's Emmy Awards together, and an inside source began telling the media a few days ago that they were dating. Well, a pregnancy announcement is one way to break that news, huh?
Morena has a son from a previous relationship with Austin Chick, with whom she filed divorce from in July. She and McKenzie first met on the set of 'The O.C.' when she guest-starred as Maya Griffin, and didn't reunite until 'Gotham' last year.
This news comes hot off the heels of news that Ben Mckenzie's former 'O.C.' co-star Adam Brody is also a dad, as his wife Leighton Meester ('Gossip Girl') gave birth to their first child earlier this month. Fingers crossed for a next generation 'O.C.' television show 20 years from now!
