Drama! Morena Baccarin’s Ex ‘Changed His Mind’ About Co-Parenting After Learning About Her Relationship With Ben McKenzie

Austin Chick and Morena Baccarin

Things continue to get more complicated for Morena Baccarin.

The actress and her estranged husband, Austin Chick, are in the midst of a bi-coastal custody battle in the wake of the former pair filing for divorce four months ago.

Initially, the agreed plan was to share legal custody and raise their two-year-old son, Julius, in New York City. The Gotham star even agreed to pay for an apartment for the film director.

Seems like a pretty solid plan, right? Wrong.

According to court documents, Chick returned to El Lay with the child after he “changed his mind” following news of Miz Baccarin’s new relationship with her co-star Ben McKenzie. OH, and the new lovebirds are about four months pregnant…

Innneresting timing.

Baccarin was flying back and forth between Los Angeles and NYC to visit little Julius for several months, but the judge has recently found that because of medical (preggo) and financial reasons, it’s best for Chick to be the one who heads east for visits.

The 44-year-old declined the court’s offer for equal parenting time in the Big Apple — so the judge responded by declining his offer for one week per month in each city, citing it’s not in Julius’ best interest to travel that much.

Understandable… so what’s next?

A hearing for child and spousal support will happen on November 19.

Whew! That’s a lot to handle…
