Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin are happy to announce that they are engaged. The co-stars from "Gotham" confirmed their relationship in September 2015.
March 2, 2016, McKenzie and Baccarin welcomed their first child, Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan. And after eight months, the couple are happy to announce that they are planning to tie the knot soon, as per Entertainment Weekly, a source which confirms to PEOPLE.
In an interview just after they welcome their daughter, McKenzie shares about his feelings and he is excited to be a father; that's all he ever wanted for a very long time. He is also looking forward about changing diapers, and everything that a father needs to do.
On the other hand, Baccarin shares her experiences working with his real life partner. "You get to go to work with the person you love every single day, and it's really nice," she says from the interview in ET.
Last Monday night, November 28, 2016, the two went to 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York. The sparkling ring was spotted on Baccarin's ring finger while posing on the camera for red carpet photos. Though, during that time there is no confirmation about their engagement. But on Tuesday, the two confimed about their engagement.
For McKenzie, this is his first time to tie the knot. While this will be the second marriage for Baccarin; she had a 3-year old son, Julius, with her ex-husband, Austin Chick. Reportedly, Chick claimed that Baccarin conceived her child with McKenzie, though, they are not yet separated.
In 2006, Baccarin played the role of Maya Giffin, and McKenzie played the role of Ryan Atwood on "The OC," where they first met. Their romance did not blossomed that time, but when they worked again together that's when everything started.
Their romance started in "Gotham," and confirmed that they are dating in September 2015 on E News, as reported by Jobs & Hire.
