In a case of life somewhat imitating art, Gotham actors Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin have announced via Us Weekly that they are expecting a baby.

McKenzie and Baccarin's characters, James Gordon and Leslie Thompkins, became romantically involved in the show's first season, continuing on to the new season. Just like their characters, the pair are (or were) apparently a real life couple, though they've kept their off-screen relationship largely under wraps.

This will be the first child for McKenzie, 37, and the second for Baccarin, 36. Seeing as how the pair are romantically entwined on camera as well as off, perhaps the producers of Gotham should start thinking about how to incorporate Baccarin's pregnancy into the show.

Gotham season 2 premiered earlier this week, while Baccarin will also appear as Copycat in 2016's Deadpool.
