NEW YORK – November 12, 2015 — (UPI) — Morena Baccarin and partner Ben McKenzie made their red carpet debut as a couple Wednesday.

The 36-year-old actress and 37-year-old actor, who co-star on Fox series Gotham, attended the Sierra Club’s Act in Paris: A Night of Comedy and Climate Action event in New York.

Baccarin, who is expecting her first child with McKenzie, showed off her growing baby bump in a high-waisted skirt. The couple were casually affectionate as they posed for photos.

The actress confirmed her pregnancy in September, and it was later revealed in court documents she and McKenzie plan to marry. The star is mother to 2-year-old son Julius with estranged husband Austin Chick, and is fighting for custody of the toddler.

Entertainment Tonight obtained legal papers this week that show Chick recently “changed his mind” about moving to New York to co-parent with Baccarin. Chick reportedly returned to Los Angeles with Julius after learning of the actress’ relationship with McKenzie.

Baccarin and McKenzie play Leslie Thompkins and Det. James Gordon on Gotham, respectively. The series airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox, and sees Gordon take on the city’s criminals prior to Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) becoming Batman.
