Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin welcomed their first child on March 2.

Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin Welcome Baby

McKenzie and Baccarin reportedly said hello to a baby girl last week, and her name is Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan.

“Morena and Ben are so happy to welcome baby girl Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan on March 2,” reps Jennifer Allen and Rhett Usry confirmed to USA TODAY. “All are happy and healthy and appreciate the well-wishes.”

Both Baccarin, 36, and McKenzie, 37, star on Fox’s hit series Gotham — in which they play characters who are also expecting a baby.

Baccarin told People the Gotham plotline colliding with the couple’s real-life was a coincidence.

“They were already planning on doing that with (our) characters when I got pregnant. When I told them they were like, ‘Okay, great!’ and I was like, ‘What?’ It worked out perfectly.”’

This is McKenzie’s first child. Baccarin has a 2-year-old son, Julian, with her estranged husband, Austin Chick.
