Ben Mckenzie engaged

Gotham stars Ben Mackenzie and Morena Baccarin have confirmed that they are set to tie the knot.

A source has revealed to US weekly that the happy couple are engaged after eagle eyes spotted Morena sporting a pear shaped diamond engagement ring on the red carpet! The couple stepped out together at the 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards on November 28, 2016 but kept silent about the rock on Morena’s ring finger.

The twosome first starred together in popular California drama the O.C when Morena had a cameo as Maya Griffin, although the twosome did not share any scenes together. Ben and Morena officially met in 2014 on the set of hit Fox TV series Gotham. They began their relationship in July 2015 shortly after Morena’s ex husband Austin Chick filed for divorce. This will be Ben’s first marriage but Morena’s second.

The engagement rounds off a happy year for the couple, as Ben and Mackenzie welcomed their first child together in March, daughter Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan.

This week, Morena who plays Leslie Thompkins in the popular television show Gotham, posted a picture to her Twitter account of her character wearing a wedding dress. She captioned the image, “This is not the face of a happy bride. What could possibly go wrong?”


Here’s hoping that Morena looks a lot happier on her wedding day to Ben!
