Gotham Stars Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin Engaged!

True love seems to always spawn on set from fictional lovers to real life. The stars of Gotham, Ben McKenzie (James Gordon) and Morena Baccarin (Dr. Leslie Thompkins) are getting married! Earlier this year the couple welcomed their first child, Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan, and this will be McKenzie’s first marriage and Baccarin’s second. The duo announced their engagement at the 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards (that was so planned on their part) where Baccarin proudly displayed her new engagement ring.

Mckenzie formerly starred on The OC, and Baccarin is famous for her role as Vanessa in this year’s hit film Deadpool.

Congratulations to the happy couple! Now if only they ended up together in the actual comics…

Hi! I'm Shaina aka the Jokergurl. I've been studying comics (namely Batman) since I was 12 years old, and possibly even before that. My forte is being up on absolutely everything there is to know about the Caped Crusader, and both the Clown Prince and Princess of Crime. I recently graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with an MA in English and Creative Writing. Currently I am earning my MFA at National University. I have 5 cats and 2 dogs, and spend what free time I have doing whatever (mostly Pokémon GO). Have a happy!
