Morena Baccarin and Austin Chick Granted 'Status Only' Divorce

Benjamin McKenzie's baby mama is officially divorced from her director husband but has to return to court to arrange other settlements.

AceShowbiz - It's a new day for Morena Baccarin. The "Deadpool" actress is free to marry boyfriend Benjamin McKenzie because her divorce from Austin Chick is already finalized.

After almost a year-long battle, a judge granted a "status only" divorce to the former couple on Thursday, March 18. They will settle on other issues such as financial supports and assets at a later date.

Baccarin filed for divorce from Chick in June 2015 after four years of marriage. The ex-spouses, who got married in November 2011, have a 2-year-old son named Julius together and physical custody is still pending. She got knocked up by her "Gotham" co-star McKenzie while still legally married to Chick.

Back in November last year, a judge ordered the 36-year-old actress to pay Chick $2,693 for child support and $20,249 for spousal support every month. Last month, she requested a delay in their divorce deposition because she was eight months pregnant and it was a high-risk pregnancy. She gave birth to a baby girl on March 2.
