Last week came the majorly shocking news that Morena Baccarin was expecting a child with Gotham co-star Benjamin McKenzie. And now, we're learning that the mom-to-be is planning to marry him, too!
People learned of the news through an obtained court document from the former Homeland star's divorce proceedings with estranged husband Austin Chick, with whom she shares 23-month-old son Julius. In the document, Baccarin says: "Today, I am in a new committed relationship. I am planning to re-marry. Also, I am 3 1/2 months pregnant. "

Prior to the learning about the pregnancy, these co-stars' romance was kept on the down low. In fact, it wasn't until these two got cozy at the Emmys the other week that anyone had any clue they were romantic! While neither Baccarin or Mckenzie have commented on the exciting news, the former O.C. star retweeted his sister's congratulatory words on Twitter: "Couldn't be happier for @ben_mckenzie and @missmorenab. Welcome to the family, Morena! Also... I'M GONNA BE AN AUNT."
And while they haven't publicly acknowledged their growing family, as news leaked of their little one on the way, a source close to the couple did say that they're overjoyed. "She and Ben are very happy about this news," a source told People of the growing Gotham family. "Everyone is very excited."
We are too! And we can only secretly hope that McKenzie's new son or daughter becomes BFF with former co-star Adam Brody's and Leighton Meester's newborn daughter Arlo Day, and that they all walk down the aisle together as flower girls (and/or ring bearer). Hey, we can dream...
