Morena Baccarin Baby: ‘Homeland’ Star Pregnant With First Child

Homeland actress Morena Baccarin is going to be a mom!

According to US Weekly, Baccarin, who plays Jessica Brody on the hit Showtime drama series, is pregnant with her first child with husband Austin Chick.

The actress’ rep confirmed the baby news to US on Tuesday.

No other detail about the pregnancy, including the baby’s due date, were revealed.

Baccarin, 33, married director-writer Chick, 41, in November 2011.

Though her on-screen marriage with Marine Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) is in disarray, the Brazilian born actress revealed her real-life relationship with Chick is more than solid.

Baccarin, who had a leading role in the 2002 TV series Firefly, revealed to the Daily Mail of how she makes it work with her hubby of two years.

“You have to talk…a lot. Which guys love. You have to keep checking in, being aware of what is happening in each other’s worlds. Otherwise, you miss things, and then it becomes very hard to go back and connect the dots. But you also need to just know that the connection is there.”

Besides her roles on Homeland and Firefly, Baccarin has appeared in a handful of movies and TV shows.

In 2009, she played the leader of the alien species that came to Earth in NBC’s brief re-hash of 80s sci-fi TV miniseries V. She also had a recurring role as Adria on Stargate SG-1 and later reprized the part in the 2008 direct-to-DVD flick Stargate: The Ark of Truth.

In addition to preparing for the birth of her first baby, Baccarin is busy prepping for season three of Homeland.

The Showtime series, which ended Season 2 with the unraveling of Nick Brody’s marriage to Jessica (Baccarin), is scheduled to kick off the third season on September 29.

No word on how having a baby on board will affect the storyline.
