Morena Baccarin is headed to court on Thursday as part of her divorce case from her estranged husband Austin Chick, and she plans to drop quite the baby bomb while she's there!
Not only is the Homeland actress going to reveal to the judge that she's PREGNANT, but it turns out the baby's father is her Gotham co-star and current beau, Ben McKenzie!

Seeing as Morena's former flame is filing for physical custody of their one-year-old son Julius, we were a little confused at first as to how this could possibly help the brunette beauty's case.
But, according to the legal docs, she's asking for custody of her baby boy, since she lives in NYC and her ex is in LA — and the little bun in her oven will one day prevent her from flying.
As of right now, she's cleared for take-off because it's only her first trimester. But we have to say that makes us a little curious.
Morena and Ben didn't go public with their romance until they hit the red carpet together at the Emmys last weekend. And if this lovely lady is in her first trimester, that means she's been expecting for three months or less. AND she and Austin filed for divorce at the beginning of July, which was a little under three months ago.
That's cutting it pretty close! It also makes us wonder how long the two co-stars had been hooking up before revealing their relationship!
Regardless, sources say the cute couple is thrilled about the news!
Your thoughts, Perezcious readers?!
