Morena Baccarin is a lovely June bride. The actress tied the knot with her “Gotham” co-star Ben McKenzie on her 38th birthday (2nd June)!
According to PEOPLE, the couple held a small, intimate wedding at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens in Brooklyn, New York.
Baccarin and McKenzie, who currently plays Detective Jim Gordon and Lee Thompkins respectively in DC television series “Gotham”, first met on the set of Fox series’ “The O.C.” in 2006, where she played Maya Griffin for 3 episodes. Their romance was revealed in September 2015 when they were spotted getting cozy at the Emmys afterparties.
Last March, the duo welcomed their first child – daughter Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan. However, this is not the “Deadpool” actress’ first child as the 38-year-old star was previously married to Austin Chick in 2011. Their divorce was finalised in 2016 and they share joint custody of their 3-year-old son, Julius Chick.
In speaking with E! News about his daughter, McKenzie said, “She’s about to crawl. We’re dreading that. But she’s great, and it’s wonderful to have family around and celebrate the holidays together.”
He also told PEOPLE that he has always wanted to have a child. “(Being a father) is something I’ve wanted for a long time. I’m excited about all of it, poop, diapers and everything!” He shared.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
