Another couple is definitely hearing wedding bells as Ben McKenzie and his Gotham co-star Morena Baccarin has confirmed their engagement. The American actor shares with Morena Baccarin a beautiful daughter named Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan who was born March this year. This is the second marriage for the Brazilian-American actress following her divorce in July 2015 and she is simply happy right now.
In the recently held IFP's 26th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City, Morena Baccarin attended with Ben McKenzie, and was spotted wearing an engagement ring according to Entertainment Tonight. The couple started dating in September 2015 but kept quiet about their relationship until Baccarin made a legal declaration intending to get married and revealing three months on the way. Since then, Morena Baccarin has been sharing a lot about working with her co star-turned-partner in Gotham. During an interview with ET last February, she said that working with the "person you love every single day" is fun.
Now that Ben McKenzie is a certified father, Entertainment Weekly reports how he felt days before his daughter was born. He said that it is what "he wanted for a long time" and was really excited in taking care of his baby. Morena Baccarin is already a mom to 3-year old Julius from her previous marriage to Austin Chick. Baccarin felt lucky that she was showered with love and care during the time of her second pregnancy while still at work.
Right now, Julius and Frances Laiz share the brother-sister relationship and their family will finally be completed after the McKenzie-Baccarin marriage. Truly there is love-in-the-set of Gotham that is something to look forward to for the beautiful couple. The "happily engaged" couple is James Gordon and Dr. Leslie Thompkins in the television series Gotham and has been starring the show since 2014.
