Last fall, fans were stunned when Morena Baccarin and Ben McKenzie revealed they are dating and she is pregnant — even though she is still legally married to Austin Chick.
The Gotham actress, 36, has allegedly since filed court documents — obtained by E! News — to have her divorce deposition postponed until after her March due date because she's experiencing a "high-risk pregnancy."

"I am now almost eight months pregnant, and I continue to have a high-risk pregnancy. My physician, who I last saw on Jan. 29, 2016, has advised me to have as much bed rest as possible and limited activities,” the documents reportedly read.
"She further advised that sitting (as to answering questions) for a deposition, regardless of length of time, is unduly and unnecessarily stressful to me at this time. Such stress will affect my personal well-being and potentially cause harm to the health of my unborn child."

Austin — who works as a screenwriter — accused Morena and her 37-year-old costar of having an affair during his three-year marriage to the TV actress. The two are parents to a two-year-old son named Julius.
Life & Style reported in November the brunette beauty was three and a half months along, which “places the moment of conception right in the first week of June 2015, the time she was telling me she wanted to work on our marriage and well before we stopped sharing a bed,” her 44-year-old ex claimed.
The Deadpool actress and Austin reportedly share custody of their son and she was already ordered to pay $23,000 a month in child and spousal support.
