This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
This week could very well go down as the most stressful time in Ben McKenzie's life.
Not only does his superhero drama Gotham return to FOX Monday night, but his costar/fiancée Morena Baccarin is expected to give birth "any minute" now!
The former O.C. star stopped by TODAY this morning to promote the Batman series' mid-season premiere, but all Tamron Hall and Willie Geist pretty much cared about was Ben's daughter.
This will be Ben's first child — and Morena's second — but while he's excited to be a dad, he's also finding the experience "terrifying" since he's still taping new episodes!
Here's hoping Morena can hold out until the weekend so he can at least be by her side for a few hours. LOLz.
Ch-ch-check out Ben's adorable TODAY interview (below)!!!
