This is the first child for McKenzie, 37, and the second for Baccarin, 36. As previously reported, Baccarin is already mom to son Julius, 2, with her estranged husband, Austin Chick. Last year, Chick claimed that the two were still together when she was dating the O.C. alum. Baccarin, meanwhile, stated in court that she is in a "new committed relationship" and plans to remarry.
