Surprise! 'Gotham' Stars Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccharin Are Having A Baby

Just whatever you do, don't name the kid "Bruce."

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!
