Ben McKenzie, Morena Baccari engaged
Actor Ben McKenzie has popped the question to his partner Morena Baccari.
The 38-year-old actor sparked engagement rumours after the brunette beauty was spotted with a diamond jewel on her ring finger at the Gotham Independent Film Awards.
A source has confirmed the news to Us Weekly and said they are “very happily engaged.”
The news comes just nine months after the pair welcomed their daughter Frances, who they call Frankie.
Two weeks after Morena gave birth to the little one, her divorce from Austin Chick, whom she was married to for five years ago, was finalised but the assets weren’t settled until a later date.
Morena and Austin, who got married in 2011, have three-year-old son, Julian, together and, while she has primary custody, she has been ordered to pay Austin $23,000 a month in support.
In February, the Brazilian actor delayed divorce proceedings because she was nearing the end of her pregnancy. Ben, on the other hand, hasn’t been married before. Morena is famous for portraying the character of Inara Serra in the TV series ‘Firefly’ and also for her role of Vanessa in superhero comedy Deadpool.
